He was my “Uncle Lester” and I’ll never forget the night he died. Less than a block away from getting home that night he was hit by a drunk driver. His two sons, Danny & Dennis and my two brothers were camping in the field just feet away when it happened. The car was so damaged and twisted that even after they ran down to see what happened, they could not tell it was their father who was dead in the accident. Even his wife, my Aunt Janet, ran down and initially could not tell it was him. So close to being home safe. This man, Uncle Lester, was a special person to me that I will always love and admire. He was one of the good ones that you never forget.
