    Really sorry to hear this. Cancer sucks.

    I had Les do lots of work for me over the years and I remember picking up a club I'd had him build me one time at his firehall. I had my 3yo son with me and Les gave him the grand tour, had him sitting in the driver seat of his ladder truck and had him wearing his helmet. So kind. I will miss him.

    Oh man, Les was always great to me when I had club work to do. Very skilled and great service. He will be missed for sure. RIP
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    I remember Les and I were at Greensmere and Les was lining up a tough long putt and took his time looking from every angle and then proceeded to stroke the ball and it sailed by the hole 15' and he just looked at me with a wry smile and said "how come that didn't go in". We had a good laugh at that one.
