Happy Birthday Les!

At 12:41 am on August 25, 1967 Lesley Troy arrived at Brent General in Detroit.

We joked that he was 6 pounds of baby and 15 oz. of nose.  Something he outgrew thank goodness with age.

One of his many loves was Inspector Gadget, the Atari, the C 64, and the Amiga.  First games and then later a BBS called Les’ Place.

He played Santa handing out the gifts at Christmas for several years.  Christmas is one of his favorite holiday.

On his 21st birthday we had a clown (much to his embarrassment and the neighborhood children’s delight).  But he did all the magic tricks with her like a real trooper.

At High School graduation he still had the blond hair and great blues eyes he was born with.

He even puts up with a ‘brotherly love’ kiss from Wes!

In his beloved leather hat he was our ‘Indiana Jones’.

He also became a Daddy during these years. 

Even after 39 years he still smiles big, he is every one’s computer tech, still Courtney’s Daddy, and still our birthday boy!

  1. Happy Birthday, Les.  Thankd you for keeping your Mom online by solving all the computer problems. She is my inspiration. It is wonderful to have computer savvy sons.  Hope you have a fantastic thirty-ninth year.

  2. Ah, brotherly love…..what a great smooch!

    Happy Birthday, Les! and many more to come!

    DOF had an Indy Jones hat, and looked great in it.
    Alas, he got caught in the rain and the wool shrank.  He gave it to a community theatre to use as a prop.

    Thanks for being Tech Support! we do blove your Momma.
