May He Rest In Peace
Cathy Ayers, Les’ daughter, advised his long-term friend and colleague from his OTC years, John Smith, in mid-December 2019 that due to his worsening medical condition Les had been placed in Edina Age Care Hospital, Waverley. Les had been undergoing extensive chemo and radiation treatment for several months but unfortunately he had not responded positively to the treatment and was not expected to recover.
Les has been an active member of the OTC Vets for many years and has in recent years provided many stories for inclusion in the OTVA Newsletter which had added to the reading enjoyment of many of its members.
