Roy Joseph LeClair
We are heartbroken to announce the sudden passing at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, on Saturday May 22, 2021, surrounded by his loving family, of Roy Joseph LeClair, of Montrose, PEI. Born at Alberton, on August 4, 1964, he was the son of Mary Irene (Perry) LeClair and the late Alphonse Joseph LeClair of St. Peter and St. Paul.
He is survived by his partner, Marilyn Ellsworth of Montrose. Lovingly missed by his children, Ashley Nelson (Robert) of Charlottetown, Logan LeClair (Amanda) of St. Lawrence, Lacey LeClair (Jimmy Lee Perry) of Tignish, his grandchildren, Paige and Charlie Perry, and many nieces and nephews, his grandmother, Eva Perry (Tignish Seniors Home), and six brothers, Leo (John) of Montreal, QC, Eric (Faye) of Summerside, Donald of Toronto, ON, Floyd (Gilles) of St-Marie-de-Kent, NB, Wayne (Lynn) of Crapaud, and Roger (Kelli) of Victoria, BC.
A hardworking jack-of-all-trades, Roy worked on Billy Oliver's farm for 42 years, starting at 15 years old, but still always made time to help anyone in need, jumping in his GMC and heading out after receiving a phone call for his assistance. He loved playing Sequence and card games, and dancing late into the night at the DeBlois French School.
Resting at the Rooney Funeral Home and Chapel Alberton, for visiting hours Tuesday, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Funeral mass on Wednesday afternoon from St. Simon and St. Jude Church, Tignish, for funeral mass at 3:00 p.m., Rev. John Molina, Celebrant. Interment in the Church cemetery.
