Les proudly served his country in both the Army and the Airforce in the Vietnam war and was active in his veterans group. He was an avid hunter and fisherman as well as motorcycle enthusiasts who was known to also drive a race car when the chance presented.
He was a loyal friend, loving father; and had a kind heart. Though he had a bit of a stubborn streak he was always willing to help those in need.
Heaven got a good one in him.
