We had great pleasure in knowing Les as our Christian brother for many years at Southport Presbyterian Church- solving problems in our doughnut group on Sunday mornings.

I sat next to Les for 25 years or so at the Saturday men’s breakfast. Just a wonderful man with such a keen sense of humor. I know he loved going to the Baxter Y. He will be missed by many!

Les was a force at the Baxter YMCA. His sharp wit, smiles, and genuine concern for all were well-loved. He will be missed. Thank you to his family for sharing him with us as we have been strengthened through knowing him. Prayers are lifted up for Les and his family.

I have so missed our HUGS every Sunday since the pandemic. I would wait for him to come in on Sunday mornings just to give him a hug. He would always get on me if I shared my hugs with other guys. I would also keep and eye on him when I was on the choir platform. If I didn't see him, I was always concerned. I was just thinking about him the other day. His spirit must have been close that day.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My sympathies to the entire family. I always enjoyed being included in some of the October birthday dinners and other events. My favorite fun memory was when he locked himself in at the shop and I had to go “rescue” him! I saw him just last Friday when I transported him to his dialysis appointment. RIP Les.
