My condolences to the Peine family on the loss off a wonderful man who I had the honor of knowing on the Ham Radio. I got to meet Les in person once at a radio store, and we talked numerous times on the radio over a 20 year period and Les was always an amazing and interesting man. I was not aware of his passing until now, as I was not on the radio for some time. May he rest in peace and my prayers go out to all his family , I know he will be missed by all who knew him.

My condolences go out to the Peine family. Although I didn't get to see Les or spend much time with him, I do recall his friendliness and positive attitude. He will be missed and remembered by all of us. God Bless.

Les was such a great guy. He had the most fantastic memory I've encountered. No matter how long it was between our infrequent meetings, he would always remember me, what kind of work I did, the names of my cats, etc. We used to chat on the Ham Radio every week for quite some time. We had some great "rag chews", that I'll always remember fondly.I'm so sorry for the family's loss. I recently lost my dad (6/3/12) and know the empty feeling. However, I know that both my dad and Les are in the most wonderful place possible, with their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Les will be missed by many, many people, but we will always carry a bit of that personable wonderful spark in our hearts forever.73 Les ...Bill, KB8EB

Les, Will be missed by all amateur radio operators who have had the chance to get to know him as I have over the last 5 years and he has taught all of us so much over the years. Rest easy my friend.

It was an honor to be able to know Les. Everyone had the highest regard for his ability to overcome a great hardship and continue on the road of life as he did. A man of strength and conviction he influenced others just by being himself. Now he is at peace and he will be missed. Dale R. Berger
