We’re very sorry to hear of your loss. Les was a wonderful friend and insurance agent to Roy T for many years. I worked with him at WV Tourism on Kanawha Valley Jamboree and enjoyed the friendship I came to have with Les. He will be missed. Family and friends will be in our thoughts and our prayers. God bless. Roy (T) Thomas and Jacquē Stover

Condolences and prayers on the passing of Les. I met him through Helena when he would attend the bowling events we were in. He was friendly and a gentleman to all us ladies. He was involved in the KVBA in the early years and was a tribute to bowling. Heaven has got a good man.

Les gave me my first job in 1967 and I will be forever grateful for his confidence in me. Over the years we became friends and like him I owned the Capitol City Jamboree Music House in Charleston. We both shared our love for music and will miss Les and his warm heart. Sorry he is gone but I know he's singing in heaven now. My prayers are with him and his family.
