LANDRY, Ronald A'Gonzague - 42, D'Escousse, Richmond Co., died July 5, 1997, at home. Born in Arichat, he was a son of the late Louis Gonzague and Mary Rose Delima (Landry) Landry. He was an Acadian artist from Isle Madame. He liked to capture the disappearing beauty of his ancestors in scenes portrayingold abandoned houses and fishing villages. Ronald liked to work on earthenware vases, canvas and any other material available to him. Some of his work can be found in Canada, the United States and Europe. Capturing his ancestors way of life was easy for Ronald, as he appreciated and loved everything with beauty, tranquility and purity. As you hold his vases you feel the reality and presence of life in each one, as he portrays his culture and heritage, something he was so proud of. Artist Ronald A'Gonzague was recently selected as the recipient of the Lescarbot Award for Richmond County, which was created in 1991 by the minister of communications for Canada in recognition of outstanding contributions toward the enrichment of cultural life in the area. A native of Petit-de-Grat, he was described as & quot; a self-made artist.& quot; Growing up he had no community or school outlets in which to develop his talent. Living in an economically deprived community, at the time fishing was the way life, there was no appreciation of art. His paintings depict colorful landscapes and capture the essence of the strong Acadian culture of the area. Many of his summer hours were devoted to volunteering his services in preparation for the Acadian Festival and he had painted numerous murals in the schools and for the roadsides, welcoming visitors to the area. He had also been credited with bringing out the talent of many young artists.

DEATH AND BURIAL OF DR. B.A. LEBLANC (Article in the July 6th, 1946 edition of the Richmond Record)

Arichat has lost a valad and much-respected citizen  in the death of  Dr. B.A. LeBlanc, the sad event occurring at his home here on Saturday, June 29th at 7 p.m., surrounded by his devoted wife and relatives.  He passed quietly and peacefully to his eternal rest after a long and trying illness borne with his usual fortitude and courage.  He was a patient at the Infirmary, Halifax, for several months, and leaving that institution he was conveyed to Inverness, where he was tenderly cared for by  Mrs. LeBlanc, R.N., at the home of her brothers, Messrs A.B. and Jack MacMillan—both of whom were at the funeral.  He arrived home about the middle of May accompanied by his wife and his nephew, J.F. LeBlanc.  His condition was most serious and in a few short weeks after his arrival he succumbed to the Grim Reaper and entered into that bourne from which no traveller returns.  Dr. LeBlanc was in the 67th year  of his age.  The deceased was one of the most popular physicians that ever practiced his profession in Richmond County, and his patients were numbered by the hundreds.  He possessed a most winning personality and his patients were attracted towards him by his kindness and his deep solicitude for their physical welfare.  When the announcement of his death was made deep sorrow entered into the hearts of his many friends and many tears were shed over his passing.  No matter at what hour of the day or night he was called to attend any of his numerous patients, be they well-to-do or poor, he would come from even a sick bed to attend them.  It is little wonder, then, that his death has caused such profound sorrow among people he served so faithfully and skillfully for so many years.  The Doctor was a son of the late Capt. and Mrs. Benjamin LeBlanc, honored residents of this town for many years.  Dr. LeBlanc was for some years a prominent politician, representing Richmond County  in the Provincial Legislature for several terms.  He was a member of the Rhodes Government without portfolio for a time.  Ready of utterance, keen of wit, eloquent in expression and vigorous in thought, his platform work was always inspiring.  All citizens of Isle Madame and many pople elsewhere throughout the province will join in spirit, in this tribute to the memory of Dr. B.A. LeBlanc.  He was a life-long conservative and his colleague in two elections was the late Dr. Jack MacDonald, of St. Peter’s, who later was appointed to the Senate.  They were a strong team and unbeatable.  Those were hectic days in the political history of Richmond County.  French Acadian residents of Isle Madame turned out on Tuesday to pay a stirring tribute to one of their most beloved sons, Dr. B.A. LeBlanc, family physician and friend to thousands during his 39 years as a medical practitioner in this district.  Funeral services were held in the historic Arichat church which was constructed in 1839 to replace the church on the same site which had served as the Diocesan seat.  Parish priest at Arichat’s Church, Rev. A.P. Poirier, formerly of Main-a-Dieu, was celebrant at the Solemn requiem High Mass.  Deacon was Rev. A. Boudreau, Petit de Grat; Sub-Deacon, Rev. W.A. Boucher, D’Escousse; Master of Ceremonies, Rev. A. Doucette, West Arichat.  Present in the sanctuary was Rev. A.E. Mombourquette, who retired recently after serving as parish priest at Arichat for 40 years.  The careers of Father Mombourquette and the late Dr. LeBlanc were closely interlocked in matters of life and death in this Richmond County shiretown.  The church was draped in purple and white in mourning for a beloved son.  In attendance were the full choir of the Church of L’Assumption.  Pall bearers, all life-long friends of the deceased were:  E.A. Cosman, Bertram Bourinot, Charles Malzard, Charles P. Stone, Godfrey J. LeBlanc, John Tyrrell.  The sympathy of the whole community goes out to the widow in her hour of deep affliction.

LANDRY, Ronald A'Gonzague - 42, D'Escousse, Richmond Co., died July 5,1997, at home. Born in Arichat, he was a son of the late Louis Gonzague and Mary Rose Delima (Landry) Landry. He was an Acadian artist from Isle Madame. He liked to capture the disappearing beauty of his ancestors in scenes portraying old abandoned houses and fishing  villages.  Ronald  liked  to  work  on
earthenware vases, canvas and any other material available to him. Some of his work can be found in Canada, the United States and Europe. Capturing his ancestors way of life was easy for Ronald, as he appreciated and loved everything with beauty, tranquility and purity. As you hold his vases you feel the reality and presence of life in each one, a  he portrays his culture and heritage, something he was so proud of. Artist Ronald A'.Gonzague was recently selected as the recipient of the Lescarbot Award for Richmond County,  which  was created  in  l991  by  the minister  of  communications  for  Canada  in recognition of outstanding contributions toward  the enrichment of cultural life in the area. A native of Petit-de-Grat, he was described as "a self-made artist." Growing up he had no community or school outlets in which to develop his talent.  Living  in  an  economically  deprived community, at the time fishing was the way life, there was no appreciation of art. His paintings depict  colorful  landscapes  and  capture  the essence of the strong Acadian culture of the area.

Francis J. LeBlanc, was 83; shipyard worker, father of 12
By Nikoletta Banushi, Globe Correspondent, 1/5/2004
Francis J. LeBlanc of Dorchester, a longtime shipyard worker, died Saturday at his home after a three-month illness following a stroke. He was 83. Mr. LeBlanc was born and raised in South Boston, the third of six children of immigrant parents. His father was from Nova Scotia and his mother from County Cork, Ireland. Orphaned at the age of 12, Mr. LeBlanc was raised by his aunt and uncle. During the Depression, Mr. LeBlanc dropped out of high school and began working to help support his family. As an adult, he attended night school and earned his GED. He enlisted in the Navy in 1942 and fought in the Pacific theater until the end of the war. He was honorably discharged on Christmas Eve in 1945. After the war, Mr. LeBlanc returned to his job at the Boston Naval Shipyard in Charlestown, where he worked for 30 years. Mr. LeBlanc married Margaret Henchey of South Boston in August 1953. They lived in South Boston until moving to the Savin Hill section of Dorchester, where they raised their 12 children. "On occasion, he would make a toast during dinner to more children," said his son Philip. Margaret LeBlanc wrote the book "The Education of Children in the Home" and founded the Tolstoy School, which was a program for home-schooling children. She died in January 2001. Mr. LeBlanc was involved in many community activities, including the Boy Scouts. During retirement he volunteered for the Dorchester Food Co-op. He was an active member of St. Margaret's Church in Dorchester. In addition to his son, Mr. LeBlanc leaves three other sons, William H. of Dorchester, John D. of Falmouth, and Peter M. of Fairbanks, Alaska; eight daughters, Marie L. Driscoll and Anne E. of Hanson, Suzanne L. LeBlanc Dowling of Canton, Jeanne F. of Franklin, Margaret M. of Weymouth, Sally LeBlanc Duguay of League City, Texas, Katharine LeBlanc Desmond of County Cork, and Julie L.
