father,grandfather, great

grandfather and an uncle.

He will be lovingly

remembered and

deeply missed by his

He is also survived by his niece Betty (Mario), Jack and Ken (Tammy) as well as several other family members.  Les was predeceased by both his parents, Elizabeth and Henry, his wife of 51 yrs Fay and his eldest daughter Debbie, as well as his sister Doris.  Les was born March 12, 1939 in

Vegreville, Alberta. He stayed in Edmonton working in a

grocery store and then as a milkman and married Fay

in August of 1958. In the late 1960’s, they moved to

Vancouver where he took a mining course and began his life long career in the world of open pit mining. 

Once Fay had relapsed with cancer, Les retired and

they spent their time traveling across Canada and

spent numerous winters in Yuma, making many friends.
