Herbert Joseph “Herb” LeBlanc, 77, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, February 4, 2022. Herbert was born the second son to Eustache “Noreh” and Louise Bourgeois LeBlanc on October 15, 1944. He was a lifetime resident of Morgan City, where many knew and loved him as “Herb-The Barber”.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Herb was a master barber serving Morgan City for close to 30 years. He truly loved his customers always taking the time to make them feel like they were family as they sat in his chair getting a haircut. Herb served his country proudly in the Louisiana Army National Guard, being honorably discharged in 1971 at the rank of Sergeant. Herb was a husband, father and grandfather who loved his family unconditionally. He enjoyed music, dancing and making people laugh. His grandchildren were the LIGHT of his life! He took great pride in capturing every moment of their lives on video as they grew up. He was always a PROUD Pawpaw.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife, Yvonne Hebert LeBlanc of Morgan City; two children, Lisa LeBlanc Goulas and husband Scott Goulas of Youngsville and Kevin Michael LeBlanc of Morgan City; five grandchildren, Hailey Goulas, Cailey Goulas, Ashley Goulas, Beau LeBlanc and Luke LeBlanc; Sister-in-law, Gale Percle; three nieces and children, Christie Percle, Dylan, Cayla and Allie Mayon, Kimberly Arceneaux, husband Brandon and Mary Grace Arceneaux, and Priscilla Percle Giandelone and wife Joni.
Herb was preceded in death by his parents; one brother, Herbert J. LeBlanc; father and mother-in-law, Uric and Mable Giroir Hebert; brother-in-law, Earl Percle.
Those honored to serve as pallbearers will be Kevin LeBlanc, Scott Goulas, Dale Bourgeois, Dylan Mayon, Gary Mason and Chris Mason. Honorary pallbearers will be Priscilla and Joni Giandelone and his grandchildren, Hailey, Cailey, Ashley, Beau and Luke.
