Leslie is the greatest guy. He taught me to surf or more correctly he showed me what side of the board to stand on when surfing. I still remember driving down to Surfside with him. He was a damn good end in football and contributed to the success we enjoyed in '68. What a great guy! I dearly miss him, and with his passing he takes the best part of me. It would embarrass him for me to say so, but I love you, Rush. See ya inside the curl, dude. Bob Parrott

Leslie was a very good friend of mine during High school and afterwards. Leslie spent many evenings at my home in Houston, conversing with my wife,Rita and myself. He enjoyed being around my kids, hunting, and water skiing with our high school buddies, John Abrahams, Chuch Sheldon.I spoke with Leslie shortly before his passing and saw his mom afterwards whom I am sorry to say just passed away last week. Hopefully, they are enjoying each other. I admit just like Parrot, Leslie was a good friend whose friendship is greatly missed and WE do love him.

Les always liked to go fast - go-karts, motorcycles, snow skiing, water skiing, motocross, and most of all cars. He taught me how to water ski on a slalom (I took the picture). He was a natural at driving anything with wheels. I once bet him $50 that he would wreck his car within ten years time, and when I lost the bet he would not take the money. Les did an amazing job of converting his 1972 240Z to 350 V8 Chevy power, that was a tremendous amount of work and design; but I think his RX7 with the Racing Beat rotary engine was even faster. He could be the best company you'd want and then he could be the hardest person to be around. He was tough on himself all his adult life, and I wish I had worked harder at being his friend.
