Also survived by his grandchildren, Stephanie Torres and Fiance Scott Fletcher, Micheal Torres and Nicole Torres. Les was a proud retiree of Chrysler Canada and a member of CAW Local 444. Les kept a busy schedule and yet he was a person who knew how to enjoy the simple things n life. He loved everything to do with nature and his pride and joy second only to his family was his beautiful yard and his many gardens. He sought out and nurtured many unique tress and rare and beautiful flowers and he took great care of the many birds that visited his piece of paradise. He kept busy with many crafts and projects and gifted many of his creations to people in the community. He was very creative and was always eager to be learning new things. In his teens he was one of the original members of the Leamington Figure Skating Club and his talent earned him an invitation to skate with the Ice Capades. His family and the importance of being there for them every day was more important to him and let him to instead choose to go to business college and take a job he loved with Chrysler Canada in the scheduling and production department. After his retirement he taught himself to play the Hammer Dulcimer and then his hand built his own beautiful Dulcimer. He attended many community events and he volunteered many happy hours sharing his beautiful and relaxing music with everyone he met. He never missed an opportunity to give back to his community in any way and his generous spirit found him always quick to notice and help out anyone in nee. His preferred way was to give willingly and remain anonymous…..he just liked to pay it forward and he taught his children and hi grandchildren the importance of being there and being present for others in need.

We would like to thanks the many people who have helped Leslie and our family over the past year. The exceptional and dedicated Doctors, Nurses, and Evergency room staff as well as the staff on 2 South, 2 North, and ICU at Leamington Hospital and also the amazing staff at Windsor Regional Hospital, Met Campus and all the support staff who helped him so much at each return visit.

Thanks also for the many prayers and well wishes and flowers and visits. You will never know how very much that your kindness and continued contact meant to Les and how it kept him going. It was not easy for him to be so dependant on everyone, but it meant the world to him to hear from you.
