I can’t express how much Les meant to me, and all the great things he taught me. He was my mentor, a great friend and a wonderful person. I can’t believe he’s gone. He was family when I didn’t have any, and he was truly a great man.

Les was among Williston's finest. He was duty-driven and a real pleasure to be around. I will miss his personable demeanor and sense of humor. He and Barb added so much to the community that they left a void when they moved to Minot.
Rest in peace Les, and Barb, know that your loss is shared by the many who admired him.

Dear Slagle family,
You have my deepest sympathy.! Though I never met Les, Teresa’s immense love, admiration, and
respect for him was evident in the stories she told about him. He sounded like such an outstanding, caring father and person that made the world a better place.
May God hold you close and comfort you in this most difficult time. You remain in my thoughts and prayers.

We will really miss Les at our zoom 1968 class sessions. He was kind enough to send each of us his book and was so humble about his writings. I smile and think of him every time I read another story. So sorry your family has lost his physical presence but I have a feeling his sense of humor, story telling and kind nature will live on in his kids and grandkids.

Dear Barb, Liz and I were sorry to hear of Les passing. We know he had struggled for awhile. I so enjoyed getting to know and working with Les at Diamond. Les, Glenn and I had many good breaks together laughing and telling tales. He was a very special friend and truly will be missed. May God be with you and your family at this time. We will be in touch.

To Sherry (who I don't have an address for) and the rest of Les' family...
I worked with Sherry at the Richland Bank in Sidney and through her I knew the rest of her family. I extend my condolences in the loss of Les. He must have been a great person according to his obituary. May you all know God's comfort. Sincerely, Jeanne
