I just heard this morning. Our first trip to Oglebay for the Festival of Lights gave a Christmas gift more precious – and that was meeting Les and Shirley. We could listen to him tell his stories for hours. We always looked forward to meeting up and cherished every minute together. God bless.

Going to miss you, Les. You always made me feel like a member of the family, and was one of the funniest guys I know. Loved your stories. Ride through those Pearly Gates, and watch over your family.

Each of you are in our thoughts and prayers and Uncle Les will be missed. While there are no words to make this any easier, we hope you can find a little peace in the following…

Those we love dont go away, they walk beside us every day-unseen, unheard but always near- still loved, still missed, and very dear.

We love you.
