The Family of Francis Augustine Levangie of Jewett Mills NB are saddened to announce his passing at the Oromocto Public Hospital on August 23rd, 2023.  Francis was born in Sydney NS on June 16th, 1949, to his parents Augustine and Florella (Boudreau) Levangie.

Francis is survived by his brothers John Levangie (Kristil) and Andre (Theresa), 2 nieces Rachel and Janice, as well as several cousins and great nieces and nephews.

Francis was employed as an automotive teacher at Fredericton high School and retired after 35 years in the education system.  Anyone who was fortunate enough to be introduced to him, soon realized that he was a mechanical genius with encyclopedic knowledge of electrical systems, welding, fiberglass, paint and body repair, metal fabrication\machining and any mode of transportation that was propelled by an internal combustion engine. 

His garage-shop was a source of achievement and enjoyment for himself and for the many friends and students who shared in the same quest to learn from the best.  Francis prided himself with having every tool necessary to do a job properly.  His generosity and work ethics were to be admired as he often went above and beyond what was required to accomplish the task at hand.  Francis was highly respected in the community and beyond.  His shop was a gathering place for his many like-minded friends.  He rarely refused to offer a helping hand to anyone whom he thought would benefit from his empathy.  He possessed a unique sense of humor and had quotes that were a play on words for any occasion at hand.  Francis was especially proud to have earned his pilot’s license and at one time had his own plane.

Visitation will be held on Friday August 25th from 4-6 and 7-8 PM from Bishop’s Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Road, Fredericton.   Mass of Christian burial will be held from St. Dunstan’s Catholic Church on Saturday August 26th, 2023, at 11 AM.  Interment will be in the Hermitage Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of the donor's choice.

 " I would just like to express my gratitude & Kristil's to everyone for thier support at this trying time. It is especially difficult not being able to have my wife here with me. From Francis entering the hospital on it was comforting to see the outpouring of loving support & prayers he received.  His many friends that visited & comforted him and did all they could for him. In reality his friends & students were his family, and your support & kindness to me has been overwhelming. Francis was such a giving person always ready to help someone even if it meant putting his own dreams on hold. To see & hear how many lives he touched in a positive way is such a wonderful thing, especially knowing that in the end, its not what we have its what we gave.  He gave generously of his time & knowledge as a teacher to the end. Imagine how much better this world would be if all of us could trust in God & give more of ourseleves to help one another. 

"May God richly bless all of you for your loving support & prayers. Holy mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now & at the hour of our death. Amen "    - John -
