    Our deep felt sympathies go out to Eleanor and family at this very sad time. Les was a wonderful person whom I deeply admired from the time I was a young boy. My Dad, Lyle Barkley, worked with Les at the City of Calgary and on a few tower jobs. Heaven has another great Lineman.

  6. Dear Curzon Family:
    I was fortunate along with other colleagues at Motorola (now Motorola Solutions) to have had the opportunities to work with Les and his team (Rod, John and others) on many projects in the radio telecommunication business over the years. Les brought such a positive and can do attitude.
    There are so many memories (1988 Olympics, City of Calgary, City of Regina and others). I express my condolences to your family at the loss of a tremendous person.
