Lester had a nickname of "leather". He was an employee of the Saums Electrical Appliance Company. He came home from work one night went to the attic and promptly killed himself.
Birth date may be wrong because one of the obituarys has his age at 36. Need to clarify, and may have two people here since one listed a F. Lester and the other listed Lester F. His gravestone in the Robins family cemetery on the property of King Road Winery, had his name as Lester F and dates 1901 - 1941.
