He was a man of character, a person of principle with many loving facets. A very respected karate pioneer for some and a very kind and caring friend for others but for me, he was someone who saw the potential in me. Supporting and helping me along the way. His words of encouragement will never be forgotten, he really did treat me like I was his own. Reynald Leboeuf, my beloved stepfather passed away in his bed in December 2018. The last few months were very difficult for him as he was suffering from cancer. But no longer, he is now forever pain free. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.
