He then took a position as a guard at the Dorchester Penitentiary in Correctional Services for 25 years. He enjoyed camping, travelling, square dancing and doing puzzles. He loved to work with his hands and could fix or make anything, including elaborate costumes for his wife for square dancing. Les loved to fish, especially flounder in Five Islands. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
