Lester Lee Reese was born on May 10, 1940 in Stanton, NE, to Eldon Reese and Sophie Jensen. He passed away April 16, 2021 at his home in Gordon.

The youngest of 7 children, Lester had 2 sisters – Elvira and Darlene – and 4 brothers – Alvin, Gordon, Vern and Lawrence. The family lived southeast of Gordon during his younger years. 

Lester worked different jobs from being a hand on the U-Cross Ranch to farming, but his long-time profession for 37-plus years was driving a semi, either locally or over the road.

Lester married Janet Rhodes and from this union had 4 children: Jennie Reese, Sherry Reese, Scott Reese and William Reese. 

In 1978, Lester met Sandy Farmer and acquired 2 more children by love: Lisa De Boer and Kristie Peterson. 

Lester was so proud to also have 18 grandchildren and 26 plus great-grandchildren.

Lester always said he was “Chasing the white line and never found the end of it.”
