My condolences to Les’s family. I first met Les
When I started grade 1. I was sorry to hear about
His passing. Les was a great guy.

From: Daniel Mowll
Relation: Friend

No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. There are a lot of guys that are going to find it hard not having Les around to set up our Quad rides There are no words to say that can ever express how we feel.. I was told that the true measure of a man is somewhere between the worst said about him and the best said about him. Well if that’s true Les was second to none. I know that I’m going to miss Les for a long time.

From: Craig Rasmussen
Relation: co-worker
