It is with deep sadness that the family of Leigh Estabrooks must announce his passing on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at the age of 66. Leigh passed away at his sister Linda’s home, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Sackville, N.B. on March 5, 1956, he was the son of the late Myrtle (Marsh) and Henderson Estabrooks.
