Lester "Mr. Kolb" was the nicest man, neighbor, and friend, a person could ever have. He and Mrs. Kolb were a wonderful couple! He will be missed by me very much, especially this Fall, when he and I would often sit in his breezeway and talk about his latest hunting adventures and deer and turkey sightings.

I only knew Lester for a short time after I moved into the house next door. He was a very nice gentleman and will be missed. Rest in Peace Lester.
