November 1, 1989 - February 14, 2024

In Loving Memory ~

Joshua Robert LeClerc, beloved son, brother, grandson, and friend, passed away on February 14th, 2024 in Prince George, BC. He was born on November 1st, 1989, in The Pas, Manitoba, and was the loved son of Joe LeClerc and Josie Kines-LeClerc.

His love for physics and all things mechanical started as a toddler. Usually, his little head was right beside his dad Joe's while working. As he grew, so did his curiosity.

Joshua's journey was marked by achievement and service. As a high school graduate of Cedars Christian School, he then graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, a testament to his dedication and intellect.

Following his passion for service, Joshua served in the military for seven years; he was active in his church, attending a Mexico mission to inner-city children and providing counselling at Ness Lake Bible camp, demonstrating his commitment to duty and honour.

After his military service, Josh returned to university UNBC for health services, studied for the MCAT, and served with the Ferndale Fire Hall as a volunteer firefighter, assisting during the BC wildfires of 2017.

After receiving a job at the Plateau mill, Josh moved to Vanderhoof, BC, later declaring it "My Town". He embarked on a career as a millwright in Vanderhoof, where his skills and dedication left an indelible mark.

Josh was an outdoorsman, especially enjoying target shooting, slow-cooked BBQ, fast food, and riding his motorcycle in the summer.

Joshua is deeply missed and fondly remembered by his loving family including his father Joe LeClerc; his mother Josie Kines-LeClerc; his sisters Amy and Melissa LeClerc; his grandmothers Arlene Kines and Josie Hodgson as well as aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Joshua is predeceased by his grandfathers Barry Kines and Norm LeClerc.

A Celebration of Joshua's Life was held on February 22nd, 2024, at Assman's Funeral Chapel. Family and friends gathered to honour his memory, share stories, and find solace in each other's company; streaming of the service is available through their website.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations to "Prince George Youth for Christ" ( to honour Joshua's passion for service.

May his memory always be a blessing.
