Les Nielsen, 1950-2012

Here is a great photo of my friend Les Nielsen. He is holding his first born grandaughter whom he adored. Les was a special guy. I worked with him at C-ISL (now AM650) for years. In recent times we worked together again on my weekly Sunday radio show. Les loved sports and karate in particular. Of course you couldn’t get him off the golf links either.

All during his time with colon cancer he never complained about the disease but admirably continued working every day. He was indeed a strong individual and a friend to many and a great family man. Les received the news that he had the dreaded disease the very day he was to fly down and attend the funeral of his uncle, actor Leslie Nielsen, in Florida. I can only imagine what a trip that must have been but he never complained about it.

A service for Les will be held 2pm Saturday at the Delta Christian School gym, 4789  53rd Street in Ladner.  I have lost a friend and a business partner. I miss him.
