Thomas Mawson (Les), 75, passed away

on Sunday, June 19, 2016 while in Nova

Scotia on a cross Canada RV trip. Les

battled heart disease for many years and

passed peacefully. Les, an only child, was born in Kimberley, BC and after high

school graduation, lived in the Cranbrook

area for most of his working career. Les was a passionate entrepreneur and was successful in several careers. Owner of East Kootenay Supply, Lesco, and Lesco Transportation, Les serviced Cranbrook and the East Kooteneys in the hospitality supply and shipping

business. Les retired in 2005 and moved to Creston where he was actively

involved in the community, serving with the Lions, Erickson Community

Association and Regional District of Central Kootenay advisory boards.

Les was a great outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing and camping. He prided himself in being the “jack-of-all-trades but master of none”, always constructing, repairing, renovating or creating some project. Les was a recent member of the Erickson Covenant Church where he enjoyed serving others.

Les will be dearly missed by his wife, Jackie (Creston), son Dan (Kelowna),

his daughters, Stacie (Kelowna), Jacki (Creston) and Fran (Edmonton), his step-sons, Ron (Fruitvale) and Mike (Trail), his 12 grandkids and his many friends and colleagues.

Funeral service will be held at 11 am on July 16, 2016 at the Erickson Covenant

Church – 4017 Canyon-Lister Road, Erickson, BC.

In lieu of flowers please donate in memory to the Canadian Heart and

Stroke Foundation ~
