DOTSON, (Grey Hackle) Lester
On May 24th , 2007 Lester Dotson passed away peacefully with his wife Ann at his side, at his home in Sacramento, California. Lester was predeceased by his first wife of thirty-eight years and is survived by his current wife Ann, with whom he just celebrated their twenty-fifth anniversary.
Lester, captain of the Grey Hackle and his co-captain Ann, enjoyed many summers fishing in Sooke. For over twenty years, from May to September the Dotsons and the Grey Hackle could be seen making the run out of Sooke Marina, from Secretary Island to Otter Point…wherever the fish were biting. Over the years, Les and Ann celebrated many a King Salmon trophy and the fishing stories just kept getting better and better. Lester felt blessed to have so many great friends in the fishing community and treasured every moment that he fished with friends and family. Ann thanks all those who touched Lester’s life and gave him great memories to take with him to that great big fishing pond.
