Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Paul A. LeBlanc, Jr.

In October we did the Run for the Badge at Shelby Farms. Our team name was Paul’s Posse. We went around the lake to do the 5k. We had folks running,walking,biking,scootering and baby strolling! Rita and Tom participated along with Casey and 3 grandnephews Carson,Braylon and Macon. Mindy ran her 5k in Chattanooga. Justin and Vanessa came from Shelbyville with grandnieces Aliana and Harley. Cindy and I came up from Spring Tx. We shared family time together and shared our many memories of you! Which resulted in a lot of laughter. We miss you and look forward to doing the run in your honor again next year. Love you little brother.

Paul was always on the job, whether at work or own his own time. He loved, God; his family and this community. He loved to work and help others. He worked day and nights at times when he was needed. He was a wonderful man, loved life and loved joking around with people. When he passed, Hernando and Desoto County lost a great man.......his passing touched so many people and he leaving his wife with 2 small children was the hardest. Paul should be honored on the Desoto County wall.....

I learned of the passing of Deputy LeBlanc today on the 97th SPS FB page, and am extremely saddened to learn of this.

I had the pleasure of serving beside Sgt LeBlanc at the 97th SPS Bravo-Flight back in '85-88 at Blytheville AFB, AR (Eaker).

Sgt LeBlanc was dedicated to the mission and his comrades in arms, from his time as a Master Surveillance and Control Facility Operator and later as a Security Controller for the unit. His continuous striving for Excellence was instrumental in the base being the success that it was.

From all the men and women of the 97th, we would like to extend our condolences to the family and colleagues. Sgt LeBlanc was a trainer, supervisor, leader, but most of all, he was a friend to many of us, and even though we fell out of contact as Military Folk sometimes do, his passing will leave us with an emptiness, that will never be replaced.

Thank You Deputy LeBlanc for your never-ending service to your Country and your Community.

I'm honored to say that Paul LeBlanc was my father, although I didn't have him in my life nearly long enough he was the most amazing man I ever knew. The ache that is in my heart will never go away and that void will not be filled until I can see him again. I love you, Daddy and miss you everyday!

Deputy Sheriff LeBlanc,
It has taken over two years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of DeSoto County. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I met Paul LeBlanc exactly once.

While serving an arrest warrant, we located the suspect hiding under a bunk bed. The suspect refused to come out and had a few choice words for us. Paul took the bed apart with his feet which allowed the suspect to be taken into custody. Paul died later that morning.

You generally don't forget someone who makes a first impression like that.

RIP Brother

I did not know Leblanc on a personal level, but he was a true professional. Leblanc assisted myself and the narcotics unit selflessly. No matter the time of the day or night, Leblanc responded to assist us with methamphetamine labs. He was a very dedicated individual that one could always depend on. He always had a smile on his face and if you needed to laugh he was your man.

The night before he passed during the U.S. Marshall round up I was on Leblanc's team. I remember one arrest warrant we served particularly where the suspect hid underneath a bunk bed. Leblanc assisted in clearing the wooden bed slats the suspect was hiding under in a manly fashion. Again he was always someone you could depend on.
