Condolence & Memory Journal

My first friend in Maynard. A knock on the door " My name is Les if you like to fish hunt and trap you'll love it here" he turned away and got on his bike . He was 10 ,I was 11. We would spend countless days and nights together doing those things and helping each other get through adolescence and later through marriages and kids . A man of his word ,a man you could trust with a great laugh.For the last 36 hours since I learned of his passing I just keep remembering the wonderful things we experienced with each other many for the first time. Those memories are flooding my mind now,one after the other.I have not seen him for almost 30 years but I will remember him until I die.

Tuesday 2/18 a friend phone me the news of Les' passing that she received via e-mail from a cousin in
Finland. My thoughts and prayers have been with Leslie and all the family for some years. Not having a computer I came to the library to read this nice obituary. A good photo of Les....his sister, Ruth Anne

So very sorry to hear of Les passing. A great man and friend. My heart goes out to the family.I still tell the story of a woman complaining about my dog barking at her and her dog walking past my house. Les came down met my dog and told her to walk some where else.
