I met Les in 1959-60 at Hutchinson Communty Junior College. He was working partime at the bowling alley and i was working at a full service gas station in the evening. After school he went into the Navy for 4 years .When he came home he married Cheryl and I was married to Sharon. We created a bond in those years. We visted each other over the years. We mostly have been far away friends for 60 years. Christmas Cards, phone calls, and in the last 3 years Text messages. We know Les will be in heaven with Cheryl now. God bless Les, Cheryl and there family.

I met Les in 1960. We were both going to Hutchinson Junior College. He was working part time at the bolding ally and me at a full time service station. He went into the Navy for 4 years and when he returned we we continued our friend ship. Les married Cheryl and I married Sharon. We formed a close bond. We were far away friends for 60 years. We will miss getting Xmas cards and phone calls, and in the past two years we went to texting. Bless both of them, we know they are in heaven together.

I love you Dad. I’m so blessed to have you as my father. I liked listening to your stories when you were younger back in Kansas. And your days in the Navy, aboard the USS Hornet & then the Air National Guard. I miss our days camping and fishing. You and Mom showed me to appreciate what God created. Thank you for taking the time with me to help me work on my cars and build models and counsel me with your friendship. Thank you for the home you helped to build with Mom and my brothers. They are blessings in my life. In part, I’m prayerfully trying to instill those same timeless and practical values in my family that you showed me. Thank you for always showing me to be patient and not give way to anger. What I’m most grateful for is you always pointing me back to the our loving and gracious Lord. He is slow to anger & quick to forgive. I’m learning to find comfort trusting in His promises. He gives us a hope & a future. I’m blessed knowing that you are in a better place with our Jesus, with a new body, visiting with loved ones and doing whatever the Lord asks of you. I’m looking forward to one day seeing you and Mom again. Please give her my love when you see her. Thank you for all you and Mom did. I love you both.

Too bad for the loss of Leslie. From personal experience I know what kind of fight he had against Cancer.
