Les and I were fraternity brothers...and room-mates during the years we were students at the University at Albany. He was everybody friend..and a really nice guy. I lost touch with him a year or two after graduating, but always remembered him.......My thoughts go to Karen (whom I knew) ....and all his family and friends.......

Les always took the time and made the time for anyone. I remember being a very young "kid supervisor" back in the day and Les always made sure I knew what I was doing. He was a caring, loving, and enthusiastic man and mentor to a lot of people. Cancer has taken another great person from us. My prayers go out to Les may he Rest in Peace pain free and gracefully. And my prayers go out to his family. Les will be truly missed.

My deepest sympathy goes out to the Green family. It seems like just yesterday when Les and I were classmates at Rondout. I feel very fortunate we were able to get back in touch recently and rekindle our old friendship. I was often impressed by his ability to see the brighter side of life, with a smile and never a bad word about anyone.

The news of Les's passing deeply saddens me. I too worked for Les almost from the beginning of my career at ups 22 years ago as my Saturday air supervisor then later as my full time sup. To me he was always fair and an all around good guy. We would always find a way to have a good laugh for one reason or another. My thoughts go out to his family. Rest In Peace Les, you will not be forgotten.

So sorry for your loss. Les was my supervisor at UPS for many years and him and I spent many hours and days together. I found him to be a fair man and a good boss in an environment where it wasn't always easy. It was clear he loved his family as he spoke of them often. He will be missed.

I was lucky enough to have Les as a supervisor of mine at UPS for some time. He was a great guy and considered him a friend. He made coming to work a little easier knowing we could joke around with him which smoothed the edges on our busy day. Les...i love you man...and you will be missed!!! So sorry for your loss family and praying and wishing you strength through this difficult time. Bob Henderson

Leslie was a near to my age cousin who was a friendly handsome young man. May his family find peace at this time. Although I did not see him very often, I kept in touch with the lives of his Mom and Dad and his place of birth. He is with the angels.

Karen, Les, Shawn and Family:
We are saddened to hear that Les has passed knowing that he had so much to live for and to be taken from his loved ones and Friends so soon. We are so happy that we recently got to see Les and to be able to communicate with him. He was such a great neighbor and Friend and I always remember how him and I would have very long conversations late into the evenings. He was always willing to help, he truly loved his family and was a great family man. It was an honor to have know him and he will always be in our thoughts. He has left you with great memories and his spirit will be with each and everyone of you throughout your lives. Words can't express your loss but know that your family and friends will help you through your time of sorrow. Sadly we will be unable to attend the services but we will have you in our thoughts and prayer.
