Obituary of Les Joseph Wilson

Leslie Joseph Wilson, born in Denver, Colorado on September 19, 1960 to Harley and Irene (Ridil) Wilson. He was a lifelong Colorado native. He left this world on June 28, 2021 at the age of 60.

Les was a hard working truck driver for many years. He loved fixing things and turning wrenches on cars, trucks and boats. He worked hard, and liked to play even harder. He very much loved his family and his friends, and was known to others as either Les, Gus or Bamps. One of his favorite things to do was floating on a boat on Carter Lake or whichever lake was the next destination. Whether Carter, Horsetooth, Glendo, McConaughy or Flaming Gorge. If his family and friends were heading to the lake, you could count on Les being there. He was a big part of many peoples lives over the years.
