Atkinson, Lester Age 87, of Halifax, passed away peacefully on Friday,
January 23, 2015, in QEII Health Sciences Centre, Halifax. Lester was born
in Medford and was the eldest son of the late Lester and Cora Atkinson. He
was predeceased by his wife, Joan (Hennigar); son, Douglas. He is survived
by his son, Richard (Joan) of Lindale, Alta.; brothers, Gerald (Hope) of
Middleton; Blaine (Dale) of Hubley; sister, Doris Lyons (Laurie) of Halifax;
several grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Lester was a graduate of
Acadia University and Nova Scotia Technical College with a degree in
Engineering. He spent his career with Canadian National Railway, a career
that took him to many parts of Canada, retiring in Montreal as a Vice
President. He and his wife, Joan, then built their home in Green Valley,
Ont. After Joan's passing, Lester moved to Halifax. He was an avid bridge
player, golfer, hunter and fisherman and enjoyed many trips to "the camp"
with family and friends. At his request, there will be no funeral service
and, as was his wish, his body has been donated to Dalhousie Medical
School.Les will be missed by special friends at Melville Heights where he
retired in 2013. If desired, donations in  memory of Les may be made to a
charity of one's choice.
