Boxford, MA – Lester G. Crawford, 82, of Boxford and York Beach, Maine passed away on October 16, 2018 with family by his side.
Les was born on March 7, 1936 to Mary and Lester Crawford of Malden, Massachusetts. Les attended Malden schools and Northeastern University. He worked many years as an engineer, never really retiring.
There was nothing Les enjoyed more than a drive along the Maine coastline and stopping for a bite with a water view.
He was an avid skier, an ice cream lover and a not so great golfer but that did not stop him from loving the game and traveling to South Carolina each spring for his annual men’s tournament.
Les enjoyed many sports and had fond memories of coaching little league even though he was the father to four daughters, who at that time were not allowed to play little league.
Les will be remembered for his many stories and perfect Thanksgiving Turkeys.
He is survived by his four daughters, Kim and her family of Connecticut, Suzanne and her family of Maine, Kristine and her family of Massachusetts and Kyle and her family of New Hampshire. He is also survived by his lifelong friend Bob Mulligan and his wife Anne. His sister in law, Mardi Crawford and nieces Janet and Beth.
He was predeceased by his younger brother Bud and their parents.
Services will be private at a later date.
