Kevin Roland LeBlanc, 64, of Framingham, formerly of Baldwinville, died peacefully at his home on Thursday, April 28, 2022.
Kevin was born in Fitchburg on May 24, 1957, son of the late Vital Domenic and Marie Anne (Boucher) LeBlanc. He was a 1975 graduate of Montachusett Regional Technical High School where he studied carpentry. Kevin came to be known as the “MacGyver” of the family, as there was nothing he couldn’t fix. He was a dedicated employee for the Coca-Cola Company of Lowell for over 41 years. Kevin was a devoted family man and father, and spent most of his life creating a loving and memory filled home for his children. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for those he loved. Kevin enjoyed golfing along with weekend drives in his Corvette to check out a local brewery/restaurant or to visit a car show. He was a New England sports enthusiast with a natural green thumb and a passion for presenting a beautiful home to host many memorable events for his family and friends. Over the years, Kevin spent many nights with his friends country dancing, playing games and laughing. He was not only a proud father and grandfather, but also an expert painter, professional mover, emergency car mechanic, advice giver and all-around great person. Kevin’s most treasured and greatest pride and joy were his children and grandchildren. He will be missed for his infectious laugh, his over-the-top tickles, his silliness, ability to make anyone laugh, and his generosity and selflessness.
He leaves two daughters, Amber Gikis and her husband Joseph of New Fairfield, CT and Heidi Orszulak and her husband Thomas II of Belchertown; three grandsons, Hudson, Lincoln and Griffin Gikis; his partner Lynn Sullivan of Framingham and her children, Jason Sullivan and his wife Ayla of Upton, Brianna Sullivan of Brookline and Lynn’s grandchildren, Kellan and Sienna; six brothers and sisters, Joseph LeBlanc and his wife Dorothy of Leominster, Nancy Koskinen of Lunenburg, Joan Richard of Fitchburg, Janet Berestecky and her husband Paul of Louisville, KY, Gary LeBlanc and his wife Barbara of Ludlow and Cindy Ann Foster and Jeffrey of Fitchburg. He also leaves behind his former spouse, Debra LeBlanc of Winchendon, her sister Linda St. Laurent and Roger of Winchendon and their children Crystal McMilleon and her son Evan of Winchendon and Kimberly St. Laurent of Fitchburg. He also leaves many nieces, nephews, cousins, godchildren and grand dogs.
