It was perfect timing to see Les Pyette in the Toronto Sun once again on Thanksgiving weekend.
The Sun chain and countless current and former Sun employees should be forever thankful to Les for his 28 years working the newsrooms in Toronto, Calgary and the London Free Press.
The Kid From the Soo, looking trim and fit in the Saturday Sun photo at Rama with Joe "The Scrawler" Warmington and singer Billy Rae Cyrus, did it all for the Sun from 1974 to 2002. A key player in the newsroom and on up.
A legend in his own time, as illustrated in a Len Fortune photo/story tribute magazine (above), published when Les retired.
We'll keep this posting "tight and bright" in true Pyette tabloid style.
Happy Thanksgiving, Les. You are greatly missed.
