Leslie loved to give and to serve. She gave freely of her time and talents to everyone she met. She enjoyed the personal interactions provided by her career, church callings, and shopping trips. Her enthusiasm left a lasting impression everywhere she went. Her ability to give was cut too short.

Leslie is survived by her sons Marcus (Lara) and Brian; grandchildren Kainoa, Lucas, Leah, Hemaile, Ryne, Grace, and Nick; her beloved Golden Retriever Trooper; brothers Larry and Paul; sister Sara; and many nieces, nephews, and family too numerous to list but not forgotten.
