les-regLes MacKinnon January 10, 1950 to May 11, 2015

Les passed away on Monday surrounded by his cherished partner Doris Fraser and his loving family.

Forever loved by his son Brock (Kate) and daughter Amber (Damien). Much loved by his father John and predeceased by his mother Elma. Loving grandfather to Dale and Beverley. Dear brother to Keith and Alana (Scott) Hawthorn. He will be forever remembered by Sharon (Howard) MacIntosh and Deirdre and Iris Fraser and will be sadly missed by his nieces Sarah, Kailey, Jessie and Cadence, nephew Silas and countless friends.

The family would like to thank Dr. Hildegard Huff and the team of nurses in Owen Sound who gave such attentive care to Les in his final days.

Les had a great impact on his community, especially with his interest in history. His contribution has been recognized in many ways, most recently by awards from the Owen Sound Emancipation Festival organization and the Grey County Historical Society award of the Heritage Certificate of Recognition for 2015. He was an active member of his local historical society and was instrumental in getting the Durham Road Black Pioneer Cemetery recognized.
