Memories Timeline


  1. Ann,
    We are all so sorry for your loss, and send our condolences to you. The thing that I will remember most about Les is that he taught me how to water ski, and he was always so much fun to be around. He never had a mean word towards me, and always showed that he cared. I wish that we could be there today, but know that we are thinking about you and love you.
    Love, Shannon, Pat, Alek, Aeryn, Cameron, and Logan

  2. Ann we are sorry for the loss of your husband. Are prayers and thoughts are with you always.

  3. He was always quick to smile no matter what. In recent years his love was shared with his cooking and also the time, devotion and love shared with his dogs. We wish
    he could still be with us to cook up one more “hot” dish and maybe do a little fishing.

    We will truly miss him!

  4. I am so sorry. I worked with Les for maany years at the tube mill. We shared many cups of coffee.
    Please accept my sympathy

  5. Anne, I was always very fond of Les, he was always a fun person. I’m very sorry. I only wish you the best.
