I have many long time memories of Les (Mr. Nowak) from being at Grandma and Grandpa Atwater’s house playing many games in the yard between the two houses. I have known Les about as long as anyone I have known.
My sympathy is with your entire family.

Hi, Joyce and family. So sorry to hear about Les’s passing. He made it well into his 90’s, but it still hard to let go. My favorite memory will always be planting petunias around your house with him. He was always fun to aggravate! Take care. My thoughts are with you.
