Lester was one of the kindest men I have ever met; at a time when I was making a huge life change he gave me emotional support. May the family know that his work is completed at one level and will continue on with his supreme example of honesty and goodness!

I still remember when I was 8. Him and his wife lived in a tiny house next door to us in Dickinson. They crammed 6 foster kids in with them who would come over and play with us almost every day.
