"Les", "Weisse", "Abe"
Age63 of Sylmar
Passed away Friday December 20,2013, peacefully at home with his wife at his side after his courageous battle with cancer ended.
Born February 1, 1950 in Oakland, California to parents Sterling and Edna (Irwin) Abramson, his brother Douglas Wayne was born the following year. To follow Sterling's job, the family moved to San Diego where the boys school career took place. Les graduated from Morse Senior High School in 1969 and joined the Navy to serve in Viet Nam. A proud patriot who served his country honorably, reaching a rank of E4 and serving as a M.P. on the Army base in Camron Bay.
Les came home to begin his life long career working in the steel industry. A man that took great pride in all that he did but never more than what which he touched with his own hands. He enjoyed racing radio controlled cars and raced nationally. He personally built the R.C. course in Camarillo still used today. Camarillo is where Les raised his step children, Chad and Shannon Barnes and they remained in his heart his whole life.
An avid bowler, he carried an average of 180 and his best game was a 299. He was still chasing his first perfect 300 game! He always bowled on leagues sometimes 4 a week!
A terrific problem solver, always seeing the way to get the thing done and done right. Above all else Les was a people person who always had hugs and kisses or a pat on the back to give to all, old friends or new. A hearty handshake, a pat on the back, always just the right, warm greeting. He was a charmer, a ladies' man, no Don Juan but an attentive, caring and considerate man who used his manners and warm ways to take care of others, especially the ladies. Yes, his wife knew and loved him all the more for the great friend that he was and for his kind hearted ways with his "women".
Les is survived by his loving wife, Delores, a half sister, Janice (Vernon) Cook and a half brother, Elton (Louise) Short, his son from a previous marriage, Travis Lee Abramson, his cousins both near and far, his precious loving nieces and nephews and the good people he worked for, the Tuckers, his bowling family at Mission Hills Bowl, also his fur babies, his dogs and his cats both at home and at work, they wait for him still.
He is greatly missed and dearly remembered. Forever in our hearts and minds and with great love.
We have lost a dear member of the family. Les was a great man and will be missed. The family gatherings won't be the same without his warm embrace and kiss on the cheek to greet us. I pray that he is now well and at peace. He shared his love with us here on earth and now he is our angel in heaven. Please watch over us,Les. We will carry you in our hearts forever.
May God's grace embrace you. Wes leaves a legacy of hope and family. I will always remember him, looking forward to the final eternal family reunion. Love, from Pat and her mother, Miriam Abramson
