Les worked as hard as he played. He had a host of talents, from logging, machinist, mechanic, to excavator. He was a true farm boy through and through. He had a passion for hot rods and motorcycles—the more acceleration, the better. He lived in the moment. Les loved everything outdoors and saw beauty everywhere. He will be remembered for his compassion and kind heart. There isn’t anything Les wouldn’t do to help someone or an animal in need.
In addition to many friends and loved ones, Les will be missed by his surviving family; mother Janet Gordon of Foster; brother Mark Cheshier of Foster; sister Wanda Hamar of Lebanon; step-daughter Krystle Miller (Cody) and grandson Trenten Miller of Lebanon; nephews Edwin Eby, Daniel Stotz, and niece Samantha Stotz—all of Lebanon.
Les was preceded in death by his father, Laverne; sister, Christy; and wife, Dawn.
A celebration of Les's life will be at 1:00 p.m., Sunday, September 9, at Wanda Cheshier-Hamar’s home at 28892 Santiam Terrace, Lebanon. Please join us to commemorate this remarkable man.
