  1. Deepest Sympathy to all the family and friends of Les Frey. Les will be sadly missed. A great friend to all who knew him. Les used his snowblower to clear all the walks in the neighborhoods. Today it snowed, and now Les can rest in peace. Love You all your neighborhood friends.

  2. Les, we have shared so many good and bad times together. Whenever either of us needed to talk or a shoulder to lean on, the other was always there. However, I must admit, I needed you more times than you ever needed me. I will miss you so very much. There will be an empty spot in my heart. I know you will keep everything in heaven fixed and ready to work. You have done that for so many people during your journey on earth. Thank you for being a part of my life.

  3. My heartfelt condolences to you all. I lived across the street from Les, having moved here 21 years ago. He has been a wonderful friend over the years. The past 2-3 winters, he has removed the snow for all the neighbors from both sides of the block. Whenever he would see me in the yard, he would always wave, or pull his pickup to the curb and we would have a chat. He was always concerned and watchful after my husband passed away. He had a gentle and kind heart and he will be sadly missed.

  4. My heart goes out to all those who may be in need of a care provider in the future. Les was more than a care provider. Les was like a father, brother, uncle, and cousin to many, and even a better friend to most. Les grew up in the McClelland home with my dad and his siblings. Les was also the best man at my mom and dad’s wedding, as well as at his funeral. Les we can never repay you for taking care of all of us when you had very little to offer financially, but your emotions will have touched us and will last forever in our hearts. I am thankful I was there to take care of you your last few weeks even when I did not expect you to leave us so soon. I am happy for you. You are now where you have longed to be since your dear friend passed away, Mildred Shattuck (Core). It was so nice of you to adopt so many of us just as others had done for you and there own children. My love to all above and Happy Birthday.
    Love your “god-daughter”, Donna Herlacher (Bunnie)
