Lester was a good neighbor, he always stopped to talk to us when he would be out walking his dog.  Going to miss him in the neighborhood. My sympathy to the family for your loss.
                   With Sympathy,
                     Ron and Gail Merrick

I fondly remember Lester as a most friendly guy when I worked in the Personnel Department at GTE Sylvania 1972-1975.  He was liked by everyone.  Jim Scott
