After spending his formative years in Haiti where he developed his life-long love of basketball and to which he attributed his desire to remain fit and strong, Lesly immigrated to the United States during his teenage years and settled in Boston with his parents. He graduated from the Boston Public Schools and, thereafter, matriculated at Wentworth Institute of Technology where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Electronic Engineering, a degree which he applied through over two decades of dedicated service as an engineer at Verizon. Lesly loved his work and was looking forward to resuming his responsibilities.
After living in Boston, Lesly settled in Randolph, MA to build his family life as a supportive husband to Danie and loving father to “Big Al” and “Princess Leah,” including his pets, the late Cookie, his dog, and Sassy, his cat. He bragged about them all, but especially about his son Alec and daughter Leah, both of whom he loved dearly. A devoted father with high aspirations for his children, Lesly was active in their education, spending hours helping them with and reviewing their school work, logging every school account and related information into his “important” little book. In spending time with them on what became his final days with his family, Lesly reiterated his love to his children and pride in them, encouraging them to continue to love and support each other and to and keep up with their school work because he would be watching them.
A loving son, Lesly visited his mother habitually, even during his illness, running errands and bringing her joy by telling stories, making her laugh, and being appreciative of the meals for which he had placed his “order” with her and happily picked up containers of during his lunchtime or on his way home—and was consistently lax with returning with their matching lids. :)
A loud and jovial person, Lesly enjoyed being social and using his humor to make people laugh. A man of faith, he leaned on his belief in God for strength and perseverance during his illness, which he wished to keep private because he believed in God’s miracles and desired not to cause all who loved him emotional distress.
Lesly is survived by his wife Danie; his two children, Alec and Leah; his mother Edith (Bastien) Pierre-Louis; sisters Fabienne of Haiti, Carine of Montreal, Canada, and Woodly of Somerville, MA; nieces Carla of Montreal, Canada, among others and a nephew in Haiti; in-laws Clunie Jean-Francois, Carole Jean-Francois, Martha Marseille, Rebecca Marseille, Shareena Dormeville; cat, Sassy; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family, and friends.
Lesly was a thoughtful, hard-working, reliable, kind, and loving person who brought joy to the many with whom he interacted. He lovingly will be remembered by all who knew him.
