John Harvey Lester

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Gale Lester on March 1, 2007:

John was my older and only brother. I miss him as much as our parents. He was a wonderful son, brother, father, and friend. We would save our funny stories to share the next time we would see each other. Smart funny is a trait our family excells in. Crying from laughing doesn't occur as often as it did. God may need a kleenex, however.
To everyone whose lives John touched, be assured, we are safe from above.
Two things John taught me when I was but a small lad, "Men wear trousers, women and sailors wear pants." And,"GO ARMY, BEAT navy!!!"
Thank you for your time,
Gale L. Lester
