I met Les in 2012 on August 26, while photographing at the Kinzua Heritage Festival in Russell, PA. We had seen each others’ posts on Facebook, in the “You grew up in Warren PA if…” group but were not friends on Facebook. Les approached me at the festival and introduced Introduced himself to me, saying that we share the love of photography. After talking with Les for a few minutes, I took his picture.
We became friends on Facebook and developed a friendship, based mainly on our mutual love of photography. I will miss you, Les.
