I was so saddened to hear this news. I always remember “Big Les’s” welcoming presence at the many Lion’s Club craft fairs he presided over. A smile was always on his face. My condolences to Lynda, Les, Chris and the grandchildren.

Leslie was a remarkable person. Bill always admired and looked up to his big brothers many achievements. He was Family man, thoughtful and helpful, Friend to all. He also had a good sense of humor. Leslie had many interesting stories that he told in a captivating way.
We will miss Leslie, but we will keep Leslie, Bill, and their parents in our hearts.
