THE Bathurst District Prostate Cancer Support Group is sad to report that one of the stalwarts of the prostate cancer support group network died in his sleep on May 28 after a long battle with a number of health issues.

Les Bingham-Rolls had been an active member of our group for a number of years on the committee.

Les and his wife Trish had been faithful and active contributors and as treasurers, keeping accurate records and making wise decisions about our finances.

Les was a talented man who led an interesting life.

He was an accomplished watercolour artist, woodcrafter and keen Rotarian being recognised for his contribution with a Paul Harris Fellowship.

He was always a pleasure to meet as he was gentlemanly, humble, dependable, carried a quietly beautiful smile, and he had a nice sense of humour.

He was a caring and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather.

Our condolences go to Tricia, Dianne, John, Michael and their extended family.
