I well remember Leslie's kindness. My father worked with him during Leslie's early years at Bev-O-Matic. I was a seventeen-year-old who was in shock after my father suddenly died. Leslie made a point of spending a few minutes with me just before the funeral. I never saw him again, but this memory lives on in my heart. I send my heartfelt condolences to all who grieve his passing. May his memory be for a blessing.

Les is like a Dad to me. I will miss his tenacious wit, humor and unconditional love. I loved him calling me "sweet pea", listening to and caring about my life, and always providing a soft/safe place to land. Thank you for being a beautiful part of my life, Les. Rest easy.

We are deeply saddened by Les\'s recent illness and passing. We will remember him for his infectious smile and engaging personality. He always found a way to make us smile, with an interesting vignette or practical joke. He loved to recount a recent trip, but was most proud to talk about his family. We always enjoyed his company and will remember him fondly. With deepest sympathy, Steve & Cathy
