Les Wiltshire Obituary, Death – Everyone here is in a state of profound melancholy after hearing the news that Les Wiltshire had passed away following a brief battle with cancer. Les was a gentleman in every sense of the word and a prominent figure in the Strongman society in the United Kingdom. In addition to that, he was one of the most recognizable individuals in the Strongman community.
We worked together on a number of initiatives during the course of our friendship, and I consider myself very privileged to have him as a friend. During this terribly trying time, we want his loyal wife Marion and the rest of their family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them.
When I heard the dreadful news about Les Wiltshire’s passing away, I was completely and utterly heartbroken. The Strongman and Disabled Strongman competitions won’t be the same without you participating in them. You were there when I first started down the path toward being a strongman, and you were always available to chat to and offer me recommendations on how to improve my lifting. I have all of you in my thoughts and am sending lots of love your way right now.
