Les Parsons, Report of his Passing


It has been confirmed by the Channel 95 KJR radio OFC group that Les Parsons has passed. We first heard this sad news from Gordon Wood, who was a friend and neighbor of Les in the boating community where they lived in Hawaii. It took several days before word of Les’ official passing filtered down to the Pacific Northwest. Per Gordon Wood, in his original message to Puget Sound Media: “Les (Parsons) died Tuesday October 20, 2020, passing away aboard his yacht moored in the Ala Wai Harbor, in Waikiki, Hawaii. He had been in failing health for an extended period. He will be missed as one of the more irascible members of our little community.”

  1. Les Parsons was on KISN, Portland…. then came up to KJR. I remember listening to him and “Wendy” in the KJR Traffic Copter afternoons.
