Blue skies Les.
Les was a unique individual. He had a spirit of adventure and I was able to enjoy many of those occassions. We powered down ski slopes together with the gang back in the 80's. Some time ago he convinced me to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, which wasn't hard to do since I had a handsome instructor strapped to my back and ready to pull the cord on the chute should I fail to do so. I haven't seen too much of Les these past years but will always treasure the memories. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones; especially Bryce and Allie. God has sent legions of angels to help you through this walk, this valley. Believe that through His love you will overcome, Les's life was cut short but his spirit will live on in the hearts of those whose lives he touched. Be well and keep the faith.Terry CarrowDallas, Texas
Les, I soooo wish you would have made it to Salt Lake so our kids could have met & we'd gone skiing. Wish you could come back & teach us all a thing or two. xxxxoooo
