As a young boy Les grew up in Casitas Springs, CA enjoying motorcycles, friends and family. He moved back to his hometown, York, NE at the age of 15 and graduated from York High School in 1975 before he continued his education at Milford Southwest Community College. Les finally made it to Texas in 1980, working at the Steel Company in Kyle for 27 years. He began as a truck driver and worked up to Project Estimator until his retirement in 2016. His love for family, fishing and hunting brought him boundless joy. He and his wife, Barbara, enjoyed the ranch life and their many fur babies including: Tweeny, Cosmo, Sweet Pee, Stormy, Sunny and Inky. Their faith in God gave them hope, just as it still does.
