Les had a long and successful career with the MacCosham Group and enjoyed the many and lasting friendships from each Branch he managed across Western Canada. His passion for cars, hockey and music were only surpassed by his love and devotion to his family.
A gentle soul, a gentle man, gone too soon.
His wings were ready, our hearts were not.
Our family would like to extend a special thank you to Drs. Liesel Roome and Marlene Van der Weyde; Oceanside home care nurses, NRGH Medical Imaging nurses and doctors, Oceanside Hospice and also the BC Cancer Agency in Victoria. We will be forever grateful for your loving care.
Forever in our hearts.
