So after Chinese food, older boy fell asleep. He got up at midnight and I told him to go back to bed. Then he was woken up at 3 am. What was it? It was younger boy scrounging for food. Younger boy never eats much at meals. As a result we have him doing in-between meals. I just never expected him to do 3 am meals. The older boy thought he was a robber.
In any case, he was late getting up and we woke him up for his dental appointment with Dr. Kurji. We got Dr. Kurji when Dr. LeBoldus retired. It was sad about Dr. LeBoldus. He was a nice man and let me pay for the boys' dental bills on instalments when we were students. Then he retired and had an accident.…/edmontonjournal/obituary.aspx…

LEBOLDUS, Dr. Allan Francis 1953 - 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and tragic death of Allan Leboldus. Allan was born and raised in Rimbey, lived all his adult life in Edmonton, and died in the Canmore area doing what he loved - hiking and photographing the Rocky Mountains. Since the death of his wife Claudette (nee Langevin) in 2004, the mountains have provided Allan much peace and solace. Allan recently retired from a rewarding pediatric dental career. He loved children and connected with them in a unique and special way. The art and science of dentistry carried over into his hobbies. His creativity and attention to detail shone through in his photography, cooking, as well as his wood and metal work. Allan's love of the outdoors was reflected in his extensive travels and numerous kayak, ski and hiking trips in the mountains he so cherished. His creative sense of thoughtfulness, generous nature, and unique way with words will sorely be missed. Family was very important to Allan. He will be dearly missed by his daughters Jaclyn (Jeff Lucente) and Dana (Ryan Campbell) and grandson Liam Campbell; sisters Maureen (Joe Gustafson), Kathleen (Eugene Starko), Margo (Elmer Kusiek) and Doris (John Campbell), brother Michael (Kitt Chanthaboune) and sister-in-law Helen; as well as his mother-in-law Ghislaine Langevin, sisters-in-law Carmen (Oscar Amyotte), Marcella (Gordon Banco), Rachel (George Caron), Michelle (Daniel Bussire), Louise Langevin (Darron Ward) and Pauline (Paul Marrissette). He also leaves behind numerous nieces and nephews. Allan was predeceased by his wife Claudette; his parents Frank and Bernice Leboldus; his brother John Leboldus; his nephew David Leboldus and his father-in-law Georges Langevin. Reverend Leo Floyd will celebrate a Mass of Christian Burial at Assumption Church, 9040 - 95 Avenue, Edmonton on Monday, October 18, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. Private interment at a later date. Donations can be made to Kananaskis Public Safety, Suite 201, 800 Railway Avenue, Canmore, Alberta, T1W 1P1.
