Edward Reginald LeClair

It is with a heavy heart we share that our father, Reginald Edward LeClair, people called him Ed, 86, of San Angelo passed away on July 19, 2022 in Floresville, Texas. He is now with our Lord and Savior.

Ed was born September 4, 1935 in Auburn, Maine to Rudolph Joseph and Aurea Norma LeClair and raised by his mother and stepfather; Gerald LaFontaine, after Rudolph LeClair died in France during WW2.

Ed spent his school years in Maine, attended 1 year of High School in Alaska then graduated from Lewiston High School in Lewiston, Maine. After graduation, Ed moved to Texas and joined the Army. After serving 6 years active duty in Korea and Alabama, Ed attended and graduated from St Mary's University in San Antonio.

He married Roberta Ann Morris on June 4, 1960 in San Antonio and celebrated their 60th anniversary together before Roberta's passing on August 19, 2020. They were the proud parents of 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

On March 16, 1961 Ed and Roberta welcomed their first child, Robert Edward "Bob" LeClair and Ed landed his lifelong career that very day with State Farm Insurance.

Ed began his career at State Farm as a Claim Representative in San Antonio, then transferred to Corpus Christi where he also tried his hand as an independent State Farm agent, but his passion was in helping people in time of need, so he went back to claims and moved to San Antonio as an Attorney Negotiator. Ed was then promoted to the Austin Regional Office as Supervisor and lived in Round Rock until 1978 when he was promoted to Claims Superintendent and moved to San Angelo.

Ed took deep pride in his work and in the development and support of those who he worked with. He considered them all family. He also gained the respect of all who worked with him as well as those who might have sat across the bargaining table from him in business but always shared the table with them as a friend outside of work.

In addition to his passion for his work, Ed dedicated himself to the communities in which he lived, such as the Corpus Christi Claim Men's Association, Pop Warner Football coach & Lions Club President, as well as a member of the committee to write the charter for the city of Round Rock.

One of his most passionate roles was volunteering with the Ft McKavett Volunteer Fire Department in Menard County serving as 1st Assistant Fire Chief for several years. In addition, he provided insurance guidance and organized the annual BBQ fund raiser for 19 years for the community he & Roberta enjoyed spending time with so many friends including the "Dunagan Road Crew"!

He is survived by a son, Robert "Bob" LeClair and fiancé, Lisa Francis of Burkburnett; a daughter, Renee LeClair Glass and husband Jerry Glass of Highlands Ranch, Colorado; and son, Roger LeClair and wife Lisa Huro of Irving.

Ed was "Pepaw" to his grandchildren; Ryan LeClair and wife Amanda Stellhorn LeClair and great grandson, Rowan of Canon City, Colorado, Riley LeClair and wife Erin Moore LeClair of Irving, Reagan Glass of Denver, Colorado, Robert "Cooper" Glass of Austin, Reece LeClair of San Antonio and & Ryder LeClair of Irving.

Ed was known for his catchphrases and was always quick to provide "LeClairification" when needed! A few of his other favorites for the grandchildren were "Well, we're all here cause we're are not all there" and most well-known for "Nothing ever too good or too bad lasts too long".

A Celebration of Life is scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2022, at Cain"s Cove, 3338 Jaycee Road, San Angelo, Texas 76904 under the direction of Robert Massie Funeral Home.
