News and Announcements
We are sad to announce the passing of William "Bill" Lesert yesterday morning. I was contacted by his daughter and given the unfortunate news. Bill was Kelloggsville Little League President for a number of years back in the 1970's and early 80's. He had a passion for Kelloggsville Little League and presided over what I would call our "heyday" when we as a league had anywhere between 12-16 teams in the Majors Boys Division alone. Obviously instrumental in the development of our league his dedication will be remembered fondly.
The funeral for Bill will be held this Friday at the Archer/Hampel/Kubiak Funeral Home in Wayland, Michigan. It is being requested that anyone wishing to donate in honor and memory of Bill do so by donating to Kelloggsville Little League. We here at KLL are grateful and humbled that Bill chose to remember us in his last days. There will be an announcement in the Grand Rapids Press on Tuesday the 20th.
This season, all Kelloggsville Little League uniforms will carry a token of appreciation to Bill for his service to our league. A small but very visible WL will adorn the jersey of each player in our league. Rest in Peace Bill, you will be missed.
