Les was an ex-navy sea dog with character, charm and a bit of a bite. He always wore his heart on his sleeve. He was the type of guy who would say…in lieu of flowers buy stock in the Blackhawks!! Les loved Salmon Arm and over the past 17 years truly appreciated all the support and friends he made.

gone but never forgotten…


  1. Hi Greg…many years ago, I met your family through Del and Amy Wagner. I was dating Leslie back then and fondly remember those times we used to get together. One of your dad’s often used phrases was…”you better believe it.” I hope you are well and just wanted to send along this message as I was thinking of your family today.

  2. Greg, I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember your dad as always being bigger than life!

  3. Les was a sweet, sweet man. He always had something nice to say, and always made me smile. We will all miss him at Setters Pub.

  4. A Great Grandfather. Always shared a great view on life for me and was definitely good for a laugh or two. I will miss you so much.

  5. A good brother and good friend. We didn’t always share the same views or cheer for the same teams but it made for good conversationI will miss him.
