    It was our good fortune to know Lester and to be able to call him friend. He was a funny and talented story teller with many years of wonderful experiences. We wish many long and fond memories for Linda and all his family.

    Dear Linda Helen and I were very sorry to hear of the passing of Lester. I have truly enjoyed working with Lester over the last 10 years at the ND Beat Harvest. He always had a great laid back sense of humor and wit about him and always keep things in prospective. I am truly going to miss his no nonsense approach to each day and his keeping me on task. He was always a pleasure to work with and be around. I know that there will be a big empty spot in the fall harvest for a long time to come and we will all miss him greatly. Linda you and your family are in our prayers and thoughts as you travel through this trying time. May God bless you and be with you.

    Linda-Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. I was thankful to have met Lester back in 2016 and have a continued freindship with him. He was a kind man with a very big heart. I am going to miss our conversations throughout the year and having him in Minnesota for the Sugarbeet Harvest. I am going to miss his joking nature and quick comebacks. Lester is going to be missed by all. May God Bless the memory of Lester Hall!

    Linda - we are saddened by this news. Chuck and Lester were life-long friends. We enjoyed our visits in the Dakotas and will miss that.
