My sincere sympathy to you. I first got to know Les when he worked Bingos for the Calgary Masonic Temple and then when he joined Eastern Star. He always had a smile, a funny joke and a wicked sense of humour. He will be missed by many.

My sincere and deepest condolences. I have only known Les for a year and a half, yet in that short time I consider him a dear friend.
His wicked sense of humor, full of one liners and zingers was just a treasure to enjoy. He lit up the Manor @ Sig Park and his love of his two girls and their return of that love touched me deeply. My two girls and I are much the same and so there was always that bond, if you will between all of us. He will be sorely missed by us all and rest assured the family is in our prayers..
Rest in peace Les
Lee Thompson
