Obituary of Ashley Edward LeBlanc

Bangor--Ashley "Ash" Edward LeBlanc, 73, passed away peacefully in Bangor, on March 9, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. He was born on January 29, 1947, in Masardis, Maine. Ashley graduated from Presque Isle High School in 1965, and went on to study abroad earning his teaching degree from Hamilton Teacher’s College in New Zealand. After returning to Maine, he married the love of his life, Ruth and started his family. He pursued his love of learning, earning several degrees from the University of Maine system, culminating in a Masters degree in Educational Administration. He served as a principal, regional director, and superintendent in many school systems throughout Maine. Ashley enjoyed rousing political debates with family and friends, and in recent years, started writing historical fiction as a hobby. He brought comfort to his family and friends with his humor and intellect. We will miss his love, warmth, and smile. He was predeceased by father, Edward; mother, Amy (Quinn); beloved daughter Megan; brother Brian; brother-in law Robert Pelletier. Ashley is survived by his dear wife, Ruth; children Anthony and wife Jessica of Brunswick, and Abigail of Orono; adored grandchildren Liam and Emily; nephew Brian Weinthal of Chicago, IL; siblings-in law Claire Pelletier of Topsham, Ronald and Rita Pelletier of Madawaska, Richard and Mary Pelletier of Frenchville; many cousins, nieces, nephews and wonderful friends. The family appreciates the medical staff at Eastern Maine Medical Center, particularly the Oncology and Palliative Staff, who were extremely caring and consoling to both Ashley and the family in his final days.
