A lifetime member of Gethsemane Lutheran Church, Les served it in many lay capacities, as it was the center of both his personal and family life. He is well-known to generations of Hopkins shoppers for his over 45 years as a meat cutter at Hovanders, seeing to it that all had the right cut of meat for both daily and special gatherings. A special word of thanks is expressed to Chapel View Care Center staff who cared for Les the last several years, particularly Stephanie, Leets, Linda, and Pam.
