Leslie W Tussey

Leslie Wayne Tussey, age 61, of Manchester, Ohio died at University of Cincinnati Hospital on Saturday, April 14, 2018. He was born March 5, 1957 the son of the late Marilyn (Lewis) Tussey in West Union, Ohio. Les attended Manchester High School and was a graduate of the class of 1975. He was a construction and electrical worker during his working years. Anyone who knew Les knew he was creative and loved to build things with barn siding or drift wood. When he was well, you could find him fishing on a warm day. Les was very kind and loved to help everyone. He’d spend his spare time making pies and banana pudding for his family members and friends. Most of all, Les loved spending time with his family- especially his grandson. Les was preceded in death by his mother; his brother, Jimmy Joe Tussey; and his grandparents, Leslie and Zelma Lewis. He is survived by his loving wife of 30+ years, Martina Tomlin; his daughters, Kristin (Joshua Reed) Tussey of Batavia and Leslie Logan (Rocky Abbott) Tussey of Manchester; his grandson, Logan Edward Abbott; his granddog, Cheyenne; his siblings, Jeff (Kelly) Bradford of Manchester and Kim (Greg Penny) Bradford of Manchester; and many other family members and friends. A funeral service will be held for Leslie at 7:00 pm on Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Wilson Home for Funerals. Visitation will be held from 5:00 pm until the time of the service. The family requests memorial donations be made directly to the funeral home to offset the cost of the services. Friends and family may sign our online guestbook at www.wilsonhomeforfunerals.com.
