JEAN LEROUX
September 25, 1940 ˜ September 29, 2018

Jean LeRoux, 78, of Vancouver, WA, passed away Sept. 29, 2018. He had a debilitating stroke 15 years ago that impacted him greatly, but never dampened his indelible spirit. Jean was born on Sept. 25, 1940 and grew up on a working farm in Hamel, MN with his parents, Roy and Louise and his four older siblings.
He attended the University of Minnesota and went through the ROTC program, going on active duty in the Army after graduation. He moved to Vancouver in 1967. Jean worked in the insurance industry for 30+ years and also loved serving the community as a proud Jaycee, Kiwanian, and board member for the Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program (KDCCP).
He was passionate about sports, as a long-time coach that always preached positivity and team work, and as a softball player who was still pitching into his 60s.
Jean is survived by his children: Lisa and Andy; two amazing grandsons; as well as his former wife, Kate LeRoux.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Nov. 10, 2018 at Warehouse ’23 in Vancouver, WA from 2-4 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Jean’s honor to KDCCP.
