Austin High School and Allen Military Academy and attended Texas A&M University. He was employed over 50 years with F.W. Woolworth Co./Woolco and JOANN Fabric and Crafts. In retirement, Les enjoyed taking care of his cows and working in his vegetable garden. He loved riding his bike throughout the neighborhood while visiting his many dear friends, always finding the time to talk about his pride and joy- his family. He loved baking, his specialty being peanut brittle and endless cookies for all. Les had a heart of compassion, always doing and caring for others selflessly.
