In Memory of Leslie Brian Yates

05/09/1939   to   06/11/2006



I am creating this page in memory of Les / Dad, I would like this to be a fun place to visit with stories and photos that reflected his personality and how he affected all our lives. Stories from when he was a little boy to recent ones, I know there are a lot of people out there whose lives have been touched by Les at some point and you will all hopefully have some fond memories of him. Please could you email me using the link below and I will include all suitable memories onto this page.

Thank you - Helen
