Only just heard about Leslie's death Beth. Was very saddened to hear of this. Just to let you know I'm thinking of and praying for you and your family. Always enjoyed seeing his smiling face and chatting to him when he worked at Dick Smith's a few years ago. May you sense God's peace at this sad time xxoo.

I first met Leslie at St Davids. I fondly remember going to Beth and Leslies home for supper after the evening service. I will miss his sense of humour
- one of the few people I know who knew about the Glums. He was such a kind man willing to go the extra mile for people and a great husband, father and grandfather. Truly one of a kind in the best possible way

My condolences to the family - sorry I haven't met you. Leslie & I worked together on the student radio station "Radio Contact" in the late 1970's and early 1980's. He was known as "Speedy" (for reasons I can't remember) and he was a really great bloke to have as a friend. Last saw him in Rotorua last year, when he was selling Epson printing equipment. Farewell my friend! Your voice lives on in the airwaves, floating around space, forever.

To Leslie's family, friends and colleagues I am deeply saddened to hear this news and offer my deepest condolences. I knew Leslie for 19 years as we both moved around the IT sales world. Always smiling, joking and cheeky he was always passionate about family, friends and his work. I'll miss our chats and friendly jibes mate. Andy.

Im still in shock Leslie, like many of our mutual friends/ex-work colleagues. Its been a few years since I saw you last but I can clearly still hear you laugh. Your laugh echoed throughout DSE Powerhouse 525 for many years. Your laugh made me feel happy and at times made me laugh too. I will miss your laughs, your hugs and your sense of humour. Its time to go home now Les.
Much love to your family.

With a sad and heavy heart, I share my condolences and deep sympathy for the loss of a special man, Mr Lesley Wong. Loving Husband, grandfather and Dad to my dear friend Samantha.
Throughout intermediate and high school years I spent a lot of time in Lesley and Beths household. I saw how he diligently served and provided for his family and admired how he also took the time to play and laugh with his children. A young hearted, upbeat Dad, he loved to share a joke and see us giggle.
As a young adult, when Id bump into Lesley around HTown, it was always like no time had passed. Hed spot me, crack a huge toothy smile and say while opening his arms wide, Come on then, give us a hug, hows Sarah doing. And the best thing of all, hed actually listen to my answer, while enthusiastically adding the appropriate Mmm Hmms and Okays, always so interested to know what was happening with my Whanau and I.
A beautiful man with a strong spirit, Im so blessed to have known you and seen how you cared for your family and friends so lovingly.
I pray for Clarity and Peace for Mama Beth, Sam, Steve, Josh and Gabriel and all of Lesleys Family and close friends as they grieve his loss.
Arohanui, Families Are Forever.
