Robert A.'s Story
Robert (Bob) A. LeBlond, 75, of Marlborough, formerly of Salem, N.H. and Haverhill, passed away on May 26, 2017.
Born in Haverhill, son of the late Raymond LeBlond and Ersolina (Crocetti) LeBlond, he earned a BS in business administration from Northeastern University. An astute financial analyst and investment advisor throughout his successful 40-year career, initially at Merrill Lynch and with the majority of years at Morgan Stanley, his clients and associates both trusted and admired him.
Bob approached his many interests of gardening, music, cooking, history, and science with enthusiasm and vigor. The hallmark of his life was that all who knew him appreciated the great warmth, intelligence and spirit that shone through in his engaging laugh, big heart and smiling face.
Surviving family includes his loving and devoted wife, Jenique LeBlond, with whom he shared a passion for family, entertaining, all holiday festivities, the NE Patriots and their home in Sarasota, Fla.; his brother, Richard LeBlond of Haverhill; his sister, Marlene (LeBlond) Campbell and Alan Campbell of Torrington, Conn.; and his children, Kristen LeBlond and husband, Brian Lee of Seattle, Bradley LeBlond and wife, Eleanor Safarpour of Bala Cynwyd, Pa., and the late Erin LeBlond. Bob was also a light in the lives of Jenique's children, Elizabeth Radin and husband, Sebastian Abbot of New York, N.Y., Victoria Coghlin and husband, Eric Coghlin of Darien, Conn., and Katherine Radin of New York, N.Y. Eight grandchildren loved him as, "Papa Bob."
