So long since we were with you
We'd love to see your smile,
We'd love to cheer your hoops and talent too
Few had your zest and style. Your family and the crew often remember
Cerritos Championship with you leading the way
Your bug bottoming out in the riverbed,
Goodwill Games, a Utah Pro, how you loved to play.
We know you died a hero,
A soldier saving others,
You are missed each day that passes,
By friends, parents, sister and brothers.
From a friend.

Saw the Mamas & Papas on TV last night.
Singing "California Dreaming"
Tears rolled down my face once again.
That song is you, Les.
It has been so, so long.
We shared some wonderful youthful moments in Utah
The snow, the b-ball, geez you were great!
You were my hero then and you still are.
Me and many, many others miss you.
Till we meet again, your eternal friend -
From a friend,
With all respect
Jim Schueckler, former CW2, US Army
Ken Davis, Commander, United States Navy (Ret)
