It has officially been 1 month since we laid my father to rest. A lot of memories and emotions have stirred my family today … both good and bad. To recap the last 30 days as a complete blur wouldn’t be an exaggeration. As life moves forward and the reemergence of my family as one continues to take place – I still cannot thank you all enough for the love and support you have shown us. If you missed the service on June 15th – I will have a post this week that will share with you the final hour I was able to enjoy with my father. His final playlist.
There will be a memorial service to celebrate the life of my father, Leslie Kenneth Hydle at Crown Hill Cemetery on Friday, June 15 at 4:00pm. A kickass reception and musically inspired evening will follow.
This will be an afternoon of good music, amazing stories and incredible celebration of the life of my father of the year. Did you know he won father of the year? Twice!!
If you had a connection with Les – and I know A LOT of you did!… please do not hesitate to show your appreciation and make an appearance. Did I say amazing music? This is going to be a show you will not want miss.

Every last thought, prayer, visit, note and gift has been deeply felt by our family and my family and I thank you.
Hydle update — Yes, it is true… My father Les Hydle was put to rest last night, Sunday June 10th, 2012 at 10:00pm after suffering traumatic injuries from a motorcycle crash only 2 blocks from my home. He was not at fault in this accident … A driver turned left directly in front of him as he was leaving my neighborhood following a heartfelt visit to show me his newly purchased 2008 Yamaha Venture. This bike was his dream.
I was fortunate to have the opportunity of spending the last waking hour of my fathers life showing him adventures and telling him stories from incredible projects I have recently worked on. I made him sit and listen to music… the way he used to make me when I was a kid. He loved music – and he loved the music I was sharing with him. Our final moment will never be forgotten.
I can not say enough to all the support I have received from all my friends and family. Every visit, note, message, gift, thought and prayer has been felt and my family and I thank you.
I love you dad. And thank you for giving me the opportunity to watch you rev your engine one last time, and ride off on your new dream.
A quick visit playing with the nephews is always entertaining.
