Claude H. Le Clerc
January 17, 1940 – September 3, 2022
Claude Henri Joseph Le Clerc Philibert passed peacefully in his home surrounded by his family September 3, 2022. Born in Edmundston, New Brunswick, Canada on January 17, 1940, to mother Marie Anne Schiavoni and father, Louis Joseph Napoleon Le Clerc.
He is survived by wife of 50 years Margarita, three children Pamela (Fred), Claudia (Fernando) and son Benoit. Two grandchildren Jenna and Quintin (Pamela) and two great grandchildren Hudson and Avery Jade (Jenna). Siblings Jean-Louis, Jean-Marie-May, Claudette, Benoit-Camille, Carmen, Robert, Real, Rino, Roger, and Rachel. And many nieces and nephews.
He left his native Canada in 1964 to join brother Benoit to Southern California to pursue business opportunities. Later in life business brought him to Sonoma County which became his home for past 42 years. Dedicated most of his career life in agriculture/landscaping industry. Always the consummate cook, which later lead him to take on the annual community Thanksgiving dinner which involved the preparation up to 150 turkeys which he did so with pride. Other interest includes tending to his garden, koi pond and spoiling his little girls (dogs).
While he will be missed, we are grateful for the 82 years God has blessed us with him. We know he is in a better place and although he is no longer physically with us, he will forever be in our hearts.
