  Leslie (Les) MacDonald, 86, a lifelong resident of Salisbury passed away Sunday December 17, 2023 at the Moncton Hospital following a lengthy illness.

  Les was employed as a Carman with CNR retiring in 1992. Les enjoyed the outdoors, snowmobiling, hunting and fishing long days on the lakes with Billy. He valued his time with his coffee buddies and looked forward to those who visited him at home and in hospital during his illness.
