I am Lester King's grandson. I can across this today while after doing a quick google search. I never knew my blood grandfather and only learned his name after his passing. My dad has only in the recent years begun to talk openly about him. Lester and my grandma parted ways when my dad and siblings were young kids.

I know very little of this side of my family, but I am very proud and my grandfather was a veteran of WWII and a Marine.
