It's the little things, the small, familiar occurrences that you'll remember. The laughs, the stories, the smiles. And even though it seems like you can never recover from your loss, it is these very memories that will help push the pain away and bring back the smiles. Our thoughts are with you and your family.

It was a pleasure working with Les at Dowty equipment of Canada. He was an inspector and I was an equipment tester. I required his help to to get the job done. Although it's been many years since we last spoke, I still recall his sense of humor and fondly remember him as the gentle giant.
