    Kal was my dear cousin and the son of my 1st cousin Lana. He was the 2nd Grandson of Nathanial James Le Blanc whom was the 1st son of Eugene L. “Gene” Le Blanc & Marie Louise Durocher Le Blanc.

    Kal was a wonderful boy and man that used his well versed mind to take on the challenges and make them work! An IT guru that was cherished every project he encountered.

    He was a great husband and awesome father to Bridgette. A father and daughter’s relationship is always one that lasts forever.

    Blessings to his spirit and may his transition be swift up to Heaven.

    Save me a space at the Family Table!

    Laura, Gretchen, Bridgette, Cameron, Lana and Jim,

    Please accept my deepest condolences to all of you and your families.

    Kal and I met many years ago at Boeing. Immediately, we hooked up into a special friendship. There is not a topic of life (technical, nontechnical, fiction, nonfiction, etc.) that we have not discussed. Kal is super knowledgeable, creative and humble. Kal visited me in Southern Maryland (SoMD). We had the best time working (aka I was only his helper 😉 and then launching Kal’s newest technology product from his new Boost Research Corporation and exploring Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC areas. We played so many great games of Pickleball (Pball). Kal played very well and nicely touched a lot of SoMD Pball players’ hearts. Kal was like a younger ‘Brother’ to me…

    Life and Health are so unpredictable!

    Kal, my brother, I truly miss you, may you rest in peace and fly away with the angels.
