    I knew Les as a friend from the neighborhood (Schoolcraft & Wyoming) and sports, baseball and hockey. Kept occasional tabs on Les from his FD and Mackenzie and Littlefield friends. A good guy
    My sincere condolences for his family.
    Hope to meet you down the road in the afterlife and catch up on our travels.

    Only knew Les for a brief time as his Wound Care Nurse in Gaylord, he was one of my special patients who nominated me for recognition and an award from Otsego Memorial Hospital. His thoughtfulness and friendliness made a bond I will not forget. RIP I will not forget you. Susan E Walters RN WCC
