We created a GatheringUs memorial to celebrate the life of Les Brown. Collecting your stories and memories here will offer us great comfort. Thank you for contributing to this lasting memorial. Sitting at the Human Resources front desk for the last 4 years, everyone met Les at some point, and he loved getting to know so many across the City. A native of Oklahoma, Les came to California in the 1980s to be part of a more accepting community, eventually settling in Santa Monica. He earned his Masters in English from the University of Chicago, traveled the world, spoke several languages, biked, swam, and loved music and art of all kinds. He was constantly engaged in the world around him, endlessly curious about people, places, cultures and food. Les was also an avid hiker, at home on the trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. With approval of his mother, A group of his coworkers have set up a GoFundMe to support the Santa Monica Mountain Fund in his memory https://gf.me/u/yiwa3d.
