  • SCOTT SIEBEN says:

    I met Les in his role as the manager of the Zodiac Football Club. He was a true gentleman in every sense. His commitment to service was only a portion of whom he was. He would never say a bad word about anyone. However, his greatest characteristic was the dedication he had for his family. He was a great man who served as a role model for all who knew him.
