LEVEILLE, Jean Guy – It is with deep sadness that we announce Jean Guy’s passing at Temiskaming Hospital on Monday, April 19, 2021. Jean Guy was born in Earlton on April 5th, 1941 to the late Thérèse (née Loranger) and Adhémar Léveillé. As a young man, he worked as a miner at the Kerr Addison Mine in Viriginatown, a farmer, a road superintendent for the town of Earlton and later acquired Swany’s Variety Store in Elk Lake.

He kept himself occupied as a town councillor in Earlton and Elk Lake, councillor on the board of Caisse Populaire D’Earlton and co-founder of Club Echo snowmobile club in Earlton. He was a great fan of the Montreal Canadians and a proud member of the Knights of Columbus in Earlton.
He was a great family man, a loving husband to mom for 57 years and proud grandfather and great grandfather. Family was most important to Dad and was deeply involved in organizing the Léveillé Family Rٞeunion in 1992, 2005 and 2011. He was most happy surrounded by his family and friends.
