Joyce and Family. Heard from Leanne of Lester's passing. I am so sorry. He was a wonderful man and will be remembered. He was special to Harv and me and all of his classmates from the Decker School and GHS. Will hold in my heart the very special visit we had on your front porch at the little farm and the retelling of the story of when the, "boys" were playing in the hay mow and Les fell from the beam and broke his arm. Keep the faith my friend. You were very obviously made for each other.

Joyce and family, I want to offer my heartfelt condolences to you and the family for your loss. Les was a fine friend and a superb businessman and has been a part of my family, both personal and insurance related from about 1962. He was first and foremost a gentleman and this shows today thru Mark and Kay. Les helped bring me into the Masonic Order. He will be missed by many. Keith Zimmerman
