He was a volunteer for the Deering Fire Department and served as Chief for several years. He had a passion for helping and protecting those in his community and was a Master Mason at Harmony Lodge 38 in Hillsboro. He loved his family and enjoyed spending his time with them. Camping off the Kancamagus Highway and exploring Cape Cod were some of his most favorite pastimes. Les was a kindhearted man and valued his many friendships dearly.
