The Leduc family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved Christopher G. Leduc, 18, of Glastonbury, on August 16, 2022 at Hartford Hospital. His journey began on January 22, 2004 in Boston, MA. Right from the start he had a big heart and a smile that would light up the room. He had a passion for sports, particularly baseball. He played Little League Baseball in Glastonbury, which led him to make the District team two years in a row. From there he took his baseball career to TCB (Team Connecticut Baseball) where he was a tough-minded catcher and the only lefty batter on the team. You knew when Chris was up at bat when his teammates would chant his nickname “Dukie”. During his career at TCB, he was chosen to receive the Michael Zabroski Memorial Award in 2017, which exemplified what the Team Connecticut Baseball stands for: character and the heart and soul of the team. Chris also played on the Glastonbury High School Team and graduated in May of 2022. He worked at Stop and Shop and then headed to Burris Logistics in Rocky Hill, where he earned his training certificate for completing Receiver Training at the warehouse. He worked with the night crew where he touched so many and was described as a hard worker, respectful, and ready to get the job done.
Chris will always be missed by his Mother, Ann Marie (Wilson) Leduc of Glastonbury and Father, George Leduc III of Portsmouth, RI. Besides his parents he is survived by his brother Ryan Leduc of Glastonbury, his grandmother Jean Wilson of Glastonbury, his grandfather George Leduc of Portsmouth, RI, along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was pre-deceased by his maternal grandfather Donald K. Wilson, and his paternal grandmother Marie Leduc.
