I never had the opportunity to meet Mr Lese personally though I felt I knew him through his daughter Kathi. I know Mr Lese was loved by many and he helped raise to beautiful and honorable daughters. I pray to God to bring Mrs Lese, Kathi, and Maureen comfort and His love and protection especially through this difficult time. May Mr Lese be As Blessed in Heaven as he was on this earth - Rest in peace sir.
With Sympathy,
Barb, Ray, Zack, & Chelsea

Elliot was a very kind soul, soft spoken and always positive. All that encountered Elliot were positively impacted.

Elliot was a very special person - kind, caring, and humble. It was an honor to work with him at Peoples Bank. A true gentleman and exemplary human being. He touched the lives of many. Condolences to his family.

ELLIOT AND I MET AND BECAME FRIENDS WHILE WE WERE BOTH INVOLVED WITH THE VOICE OF THE FAITHFUL GROUP, A GROUP OF CATHOLIC LAYPEOPLE WHO WERE RESPONDING TO CLERGY SEX ABUSE OF CHILDREN A FEW YEARS BACK. SINCE THEN ELLIOT AND I HAVE HAD MONTHLY OR AT TIMES MORE OFTEN, LUNCHES TOGETHER. ELLIOT WAS A BRILLIANT MAN, A MEMBER OF MENSA WHOSE MEMBERS MUST HAVE AN IQ OF AT LEAST 150. I FELT HONORED TO BE AMONG THOSE ELLIOT CALLED AND CONSIDERED "FRIEND." I WILL MISS HIM GREATLY.

I did not know your husband and father, but chaplains here at St.Vincent on 86th have spoken so highly of his Eucharistic Ministry here for patients. As one of them recalled, Elliot would come on short notice when needed. I will keep you and him in prayer.

I worked with Elliot for many years at hospice. We talked weekly about family and football mostly. He was a dear man and I enjoyed our chats. He always referred to his wife as his boss. He always asked about my daughter. I respected all the volunteer work he did. Elliot was a great man and I miss him. I am sorry for his family and their loss.
