Obituary

Lester was born Dec. 13, 1928 to the late Robert and Virtle
Rose.

Prior to moving to Arden Courts Yardley Lester was a 50+
year resident of the Laurel Bend section of Bristol Twp.
Lester was a "Good Ole Farm Boy" born in West Virginia
working the coal mines, farming and "running shine", after
coming to Pennsylvania Lester worked over 35 years for 3M
Company in Bristol and was an "Honorary Ambassador of
Good Will".

Lester enjoyed family trips back to West Virginia visiting
with his parents and teaching his family the "country" way
of living, being self-sustaining, hard-working and honest,
these lesson's we will take to our grave's and can never
ever thank him enough.

In retirement Lester enjoyed working around his home,
going to Atlantic City with his wife Peg and his Casino
buddy Tim. Lester enjoyed sitting in his front yard enjoying
the day and doing some people watching. Lester could
always be counted on to lend a helping hand to all of his
neighbors.

Lester/Dad will be dearly missed.
