A great and Godly man... I met Lester and his family at the Erma Holiness Camp Meeting near Cape May NJ.. They attended there every year, for many, many years... Never speaking a harsh word to anyone or about anyone.. He was a gracious, gentle and kind man that loved God and camp meetings. I remember him working in the dining hall kitchen at camp.. Rest Peacefully my friend...
