    We have many fond memories of Les when he would come help on the Sorensen Farm. We are sadden at the news of his passing but know he is at peace. Out thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Always remember Families are Forever.

    Dear Hammond Family,

    I am sorry to hear of your loss. I thought a lot of Les, he was a hard working dedicated coal miner at Deer Creek mine. I have much respect for his work ethic, patriotism, and love of family. I wish he could have enjoyed a longer healthier retirement, “Life is not always fair” but Les made the best of it.

    A Friend,
    Paul Larson

    My thoughts and prayers to the family. Unfortunately, I hadn’t seen Leslie in a number of years. I am his cousin and I recall being a young girl (he was 11 years older than I) how handsome and kind he was. I recall Aunt Micky worrying about him when he went to Vietnam. I recall many memories including our family visits in Scofield, catching frogs and fishing. Visiting in Mt Pleasant and helping to feed the calves. He was a hard worker and I know his parents are holding him tightly in their arms, a great reunion in Heaven.
