His life was rich with the love of his devoted wife, Cody Schilling, and was further blessed by the joy his children, Lewis and Megan Schilling, brought him. Les was a brother to Ron and Paul Schilling, and Audrey Doucette, with whom he shared an unbreakable bond and countless memories. A proud graduate of Nashua High School in 1981, Les furthered his education at a Welding Tech School in Calmar. His passion for craftsmanship led him to a fulfilling career in welding as well as being the jack of all trades in the words of his wife. Les's spirit of adventure was unmistakable. His love for riding his motorcycle was not just a hobby but a way of being free and connected to the world around him. A collector of military memorabilia, Les was also a history buff whose knowledge and enthusiasm for the past enriched the lives of all around him. He loved gardening, where he cultivated not just plants but also the beauty and tranquility that his garden provided. Les's fascination with fire was another aspect of his multifaceted personality, one that showcased his ability to find wonder in the elemental forces of nature. Les had a unique way of connecting to the world, often pointing out old gas stations to his daughter, Megan, on their drives. In his younger years, he was known for his spirited and adventurous nature, always ready to embark on a new and exciting challenge, no matter how crazy it seemed. Those who knew Les would attest to his generous spirit, evidenced by his enduring wish to donate his hair to those in need. His adventurous, creative, and spirited nature will be remembered by all who had the pleasure of crossing paths with him. Les's life was a testament to living genuinely and fully, embracing each moment with passion and creativity. His legacy is one of love, adventure, and an indomitable spirit that will continue to inspire those he left behind.
