He was a devoted, loving husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather. He was always so proud of his family as well as his friends. Lester was certainly blessed with many special friends in his life, and to have a friend, you had to be a friend, and he certainly was that. Lester was a hard worker and never settled for just OK. it had to be perfect or forget it-Start Over. No matter what you talked about, he always had a story to tell that went along with it. His greatest accomplishment was his daughter Leslie and her family. He was so proud of all she did as well as her husband Alan who is more like a son than a son-in-law, and then there's Alec, our grandson who's only mention of his name would bring a grin from ear to ear. He's such an outstanding young man who will go far in life, especially with Pepere looking down upon him.
Lester's favorite pastimes were hunting and fishing, and now that his hands and feet are working, he's probably doing just that with Uncle Jerome.
Lester was well known in the community, having worked at various businesses in the area including: C.H. Vigue, Scott Paper, Cleveland Cement, Pinetree Furniture, and 22 years at FLT. Winters as general manager of the flooring dept. having many close relationships that carried into his personal life. Mark was more of a brother to him than a boss. We love you Mark !!! Special Thanks go out to: Fr. Larry Jensen, Fr. Chris Pirelli, Fr. Francis Morin, Fr. Sami, Dr. Robert Dohner, all the Hospice Staff, Deb Golden, Michelle, Linda Weeks, all the staff at Maine General in Augusta floors 1, 2, and rehab. Everyone was outstanding, especially his girls, Roseadee, Shari, Nancy, & Kathy, you always relaxed him, as well as all the therapists. You're all like family.
