On behalf of my family we send our deepest sympathy.
I spent over 27 years working with Les at Honda.
We had many great years together.
Some of my best times with Les were playing Co-Ed softball.
Les was a great pitcher he could spin that ball and place it on the corner of the plate with the best of them.
Les loved his family with all his heart.
I will be forever greatful to have known such a great man.
I'm praying for all of his family and close friends that you would feel the peace of God which passes all understanding.
May God bless you all.
In Christ love Jeff Webb
