Many'felt as if the soiree held Sunday afternoon for LeDuc, who retires Friday after 25 years with the City, was bittersweet. LeDuc felt the same. "You go to something like this with miix^d emotions," LeDuc said, adding that he is excited to have that extra time with his family, but^he will surely miss working for the City. When giving his speech to the crowd, LeDuc had tears well in his eyes and asked for his wife Renee to stand with him as he gave his farewell. Renee, along with three of their children, were at the event, and LeDuc took the opportunity to thank his family'for their years of support.
