The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

I want to think Les for his service to his country. His desire to help other people with whatever they might need he would do his best to try to help you. He was funny and fun to just sit and chat with well I would say he would stand on the sidewalk. My husband and him would both be standing beside a car usually. But I sure do miss that Harley rolling in with the music blaring 70's and 80's

I want to thank Les for his service to our country. He was a good man a man that would help anybody if he could. I live next door to last for 5 years plus and he was one of the best neighbors we've ever had. He was always there to have a chat with or if you needed anything he would get it for you if he had it. It was great to hear him rolling on his Harley with the music blaring seven days and '80s of course and I was singing right along with him. I do miss that and I miss him my husband and him could talk for hours I think. I knew if he was out there talking to Les that I wouldn't see him for a while haha. Any rate I want to let you the family know that you had a great man in my prayers and thoughts are with you. Unforeseen circumstances I was unable to come last night but my thoughts and prayers were with you guys.
May God bless you and be with you Mason and Kat Cook
