Hello Everyone, this is Heather Owens, Les' daughter. Thank you for all the support and encouragement. My mother, Darlene has been able to read all your messages and she is grateful.
Les passed away Saturday, September 13th at home. Many of you know Les had open-heart surgery in March of this year (a quadruple bi-pass) and was still recovering but doing well. He left us quickly and peacefully for which we are thankful as he always said "I want it to be quick.".
He is survived by his wife, Darlene of 51 years. His son, Jim - who lives in Wyoming, two daughters Heather & Karri who both live in Seattle and 6 grandchildren (Taylor, Connor, Evan, Katie, Nathan & Emma).
We are holding a Memorial Service for Les on Saturday, September 27th @ 5pm at the VFW Post 51, located at 300 West Mission, Spokane, WA 99201. If you can make it, we'd love to see you and hear your stories/memories of Les. He loved the Seahawks and .net but most of all he loved the connections he made with the people involved in seahawks.net.
