Many prayers to family. Worked with Les for a number of years at the Iowa State Penitentiary in Ft. Madison. He always had a smile on his face and something cool to say to make you laugh. What a character:) Loved working with him. Those are the kind of guys you want working with you. Just a really great guy. From a fellow officer - he will be missed by all of us.
