Todd M. LeBlanc | Republican-American

SOUTHBURY – Todd Michael Leblanc, 56, the beloved husband of Sasha Fowler-LeBlanc, died suddenly on June 26, 2022, after nearly 10 years of marriage.

Born December 30, 1965 in Attleboro, Mass., to the late David and Mary (McMahon) Leblanc, Todd graduated from Naugatuck High School in 1983. Following his passion for cars, he continued his education in Porter and Chester , later becoming a master mechanic and technician.

Todd (Crash) began his career as a mechanic and later worked for Sikorsky Aircraft as an aircraft assembler, Inline Plastics as an A-electromechanical technician, and Avalence as a R&D lead technician. While at Sikorsky, he was invited to the Presidential VH-60 program to build and supplement the fleet of nine helicopters still in service today.

In 2014, Todd and Sasha decided to start their own company, Fowlers USA LLC, distributing motorcycle clothing and accessories. His main passion was music and he regularly supported his friends during their shows.

Todd was a talented guitarist, forming the band Mixed Emotions in 1993 with his 35-year-old best friend and brother, Steve, whom he met while working at Sikorsky. More recently, he has enjoyed performing with his friends in their bands or giving friends and family their own private gigs while hanging out on the patio and in the basement music room.

He loved to ride motorcycles and early in his life earned his nickname “Crash” while riding dirt bikes with his brother and their friends in Beacon Falls.

Later, Todd began working with wood with projects such as designing and building guitars, as well as making furniture for the home.

Todd is survived by his wife Sasha; son David; daughters Rebecca, Crystal and Alexandra; grandchildren Liam and Ayden; his brother Ray; sister-in-law Janice; nephew Jonathan and niece Kathryn.

Friends and family are invited for a visitation today from noon to 2 p.m. at Carpino Funeral Home, 750 Main St. South, Southbury.
