Lester Farkas has a favorite saying that came from a Chinese childrens story book.
"A Yellow House is a Happy House"
Lester served his country during the Viet Nam war. After the war he taught English to many Vietnamese families and helped them assimilate into American society. Lester relocated to Ferndale following a long and dedicated career in Govt. service. In 1992 Lester kindly volunteered his leadership skills to help organize and build public support for the passage of the Ferndale Community Library Bond. Driven by the passion for education,literature and culture.Lester was the consistent voice supporting the wisdom of investing in libraries. Lester's final resting place will be the Arlington National Cemetery in Washington D.C.
Lester's lasting legacy may not be the brick and mortar "Community building" better yet the heart felt Community building humanitarian spirit that lifts all boats..even little yellow boats. Thank You Lester Farkas
