On a sad note, Lynn LeBoeuf passed away on January 25th. He was, among other things, a Past President of the Society. I ordered flowers for his memorial service (in Tomball on 2/19) on the Society’s behalf, and we made a 250$ contribution to the charity he was a big part of.

Longtime Tomball hospital CEO dies, remembered for community service
From Houston Chronicle Feb. 4, 2022
The CEO of the Tomball Regional Health Foundation died last week after decades of service to the Tomball community.
Louis Lynn LeBouef died Jan. 25 at 69. While he had been the CEO of Tomball Regional Health Foundation since 2013, Lebouef had spent more than 30 years working for Tomball Regional Medical Center, first as the Director of Cardiopulmonary Services, then moving into administration in 1996 and being named CEO in 2005.
His obituary stated he served as CEO for the hospital until 2011, when the hospital was purchased by Community Health Systems. From there, he transitioned to become a legislative and regulatory liaison before leaving for Tomball Regional Health Foundation.
LeBeouf had served in other roles in the Tomball community, including as part of the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors from 2006 to 2008. GTACC President Bruce Hillegeist said LeBeouf probably knew every inch of the Tomball Regional Medical Center, which he watched grow from a small size to what it is today.
“Great leader,” Hillegeist said about LeBeouf. “People, his employees respected him. I do have a friend who worked as a respiratory therapist for Lynn and he told me no one ever left because Lynn took good care of his employees.”
LeBeouf was born in 1952 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, his obituary reads, before moving to Tomball in 1978. He leaves behind two sons, a daughter, two stepdaughters, and 15 grandchildren.
LeBeouf was also very involved with TOMAGWA, Hillegeist said, a local nonprofit which helps provide health care for people in need. He even served as parade marshal for the chamber’s annual holiday parade in 2006 for his contributions to the community.
“He was a preeminent leader and really cared about his community and the hospital. …He lived for that hospital and his family,” he said.
A memorial service will be held for LeBeouf 10 a.m. Feb. 19 at Klein Funeral Home in Tomball, 1400 West Main St.firstname.lastname@example.org
