I am so sorry I couldn't get off of work to attend Les' funeral. Your family has our deepest sympathy and prayers. I will truly miss Les. I have seen him often when he would come in for a cup of coffee and always enjoyed talking with him then and at St. Pats.

Sorry to hear of your loss. I remember Bud from the times he came to visit Grandma Becker. The Westminster clock he gave her is a fond memory. Also I remember the big sombrero he wore on our cruise. He will be missed!

Dear family of Les, We share your sadness and hurt. Les has touched so many and taught us how to love family, friends, and anyone he met. As a member of the St Patrick's Men's group, I have learned much about life, laughter and especially acting on faith from Les each week. We have become spiritual brothers from many hours of sharing together. We will pray to and for Les and your family. God bless, Paul and Harriet Zuiker

I first met Les at Banta School and enjoyed working with him. It was a very pleasant surprise to find him as a member of St. Pat's when Jim and I joined the parish. He was always supportive and loving and he will be missed! God bless. Janet Heiman

My condolences to your family. I taught with Les at Banta School for eight years. But have known him since 1975. We worked at the fish fries together for many years as well. My thoughts and prayers for Les and his family.

I enjoyed getting to know Les through our Men's Group and growing our relationship with Jesus Christ as we shared our journey. I treasure Les' quick wit and simple spirituality that he was always so willing to impart on us. He will be greatly missed but we are happy knowing he is now at peace in his new life in Christ.
Kathy and Paul Fellenz left a message on March 4, 2016:
As longtime members of St. Pat's, and elementary teachers ourselves, we've always liked Les, and were privileged to call him a friend. I sang in the resurrection choir with him, and we were part of the Monday night centering prayer group with Les. He always left the group early, though, to be with Marty before she turned in for the night. Such a devoted husband, parishioner, and friend! We will surely miss him, and since we're out of town are so sorry we have to miss his funeral mass! You have our sympathy, Marty and family.

His love for family, community and St. Patrick's faithful with was deep, lasting and made richer by his steady prayer and daily sense of relationships and life. Bless you, Les, and may your family be comforted knowing you lived a life fulfilling God's calling.
