MacLean, Leslie “Les” Wilfred - It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Les MacLean on Sunday, April 3, 2016, in Musquodoboit Valley Memorial Hospital, Middle Musquodoboit. With his loving wife and partner of 32 years, Donna (Richardson) MacLean, by his side, he fought hard during his two-year battle with cancer and dealt with his illness with courage until the end.
In addition to his wife, Les is survived by his daughters, Nicola (Kallol) and Rebecca; sister, Linda (Bruce); brother, Scott (Mary); nieces and nephews; and many long-time friends. He was predeceased by his parents, Harold and Joyce (Frizzell) MacLean.
Les grew up in Truro and moved to Halifax to attend Dalhousie, where he began his lifelong membership with the Phi Kappa Pi Fraternity. He had a long successful career in food distribution and had worked with many of the chefs and restaurants in the Halifax area. An avid hunter and fisher, Les brought people together and celebrated friendship and a love of good food. He had many good friends and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. In his final days, Les received wonderful medical care from Oncology doctors and nurses in QEII Health Sciences Centre, and loving care from Musquodoboit Valley Memorial Hospital - the little hospital with a big heart.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday at 2 pm. in Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro (no scents, please). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Musquodoboit Valley Health Foundation or Atlantic Clinical Cancer Research Unit (http://qe2foundation.ca/).
