Leslie Neal Childs
Born: June 4, 1953
Died: October 6, 2012 in Twin Falls, Idaho
Age: 59 years old
Les was born June 4, 1953, to James E. and Marvel (Cramer) Childs. He grew up in and around Idaho and graduated from Dietrich High School in 1972. While in high school, he was voted class president and friendliest guy. After high school, Les worked in various jobs, including auto body, welding and drywall. Les was an avid hunter and fisherman, enjoying trips with his brothers throughout his life. He loved the outdoors and spent as much time as he could enjoying the natural beauty of Idaho. Although his sister, Angie, wasn’t much for hunting, the memories of Les spending time with his little sister are cherished memories to her. After having been surrounded by five brothers for his entire life, a baby sister was a new adventure and he took on the big brother role with pleasure.
Les is survived by his brothers, Allen Childs of Twin Falls, Daniel Childs of Shoshone, Michael Childs of Shoshone and James Childs of Twin Falls; his sister, Angela Bridge of Jerome; his stepfather, Arnold Bridge of Twin Falls; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles. He was preceded in death by his parents, James E. and Marvel; and his younger brother, Mark.
We cherish the memories of our brother and although he is no longer here with us, we are grateful to have known and loved him. May he find the peace he deserves.
A celebration of Les’ life will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, at White Mortuary, Chapel by the Park, 136 Fourth Ave. E. in Twin Falls. Services are under the direction of Trent Stimpson and staff at White Mortuary. Condolences may be left for the family by visiting www.whitemortuary.com.
