    I’m so sorry to hear this. Les was a great guy. I enjoyed working with him 12 years at First Concord. He was kind, considerate and always came up with something funny to make us all laugh during stressful times. He attended my wedding and other work and family events and was so well liked. I’m so sorry for your loss.
