He was a loving husband, a good father and a great friend. His sons and grandchildren were his greatest joy. He enjoyed spending time with his sons 4x4ing, quadding, fishing and camping together with friends.

Leslie will be remembered for his contagious laugh, great smile, huge personality and wit. He loved playing pranks on people then standing back watching and laughing as it played out.

Leslie enjoyed working in his garage doing mechanical repairs for friends and family.
