My condolences to the immediate and adopted families of Lester Fern. I met Les when I visited my Sister Nina and Brother Phil Pace over breakfast several years ago. Les was kind and a loving man to everyone. He was quite funny, an excellent decorator, antique collector and an immaculate dresser. I will truly miss him and the joy that he gave us. Rest in peace my Friend!

Dear Friends and Family/:
Please accept my heartfelt condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. Please find comfort in the scripture at Job 1414, where it says "If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service until my relief comes." I read of your loss in the funeral home directory.

Les always made laugh. He taught me how to make my own sloppy joe sauce as he couldn’t believe that I bought it.

I know that wherever he is that he will be in charge of entertainment as his laugh and smile are what made him such a special person. Rest In Peace.
