Robert (Bob) "R.L" Lesnick Passes On

I regretted reading about the death of Bob Lesnick in this weeks JS. For many years Bob's company, Copy Products Corp., was problbly the most dominent copier dealer in Central Illinois. He had the ability and wisdom to gather up most of the leading copier franchises in the area and dominated the market; from Caterpillar to many of the major companies in Bloomington and other Central Illinois communities.

Handsome, personable and suave, he and the also departed personable John Smith, owner of Illinois Blueprint, were landmarks in Peoria for many years.

While I have not seen Bob in recent years, I pass my regrets to his wife Martha and their extensive family.

Memorial may be directed to: R.L.Lesnick Memorial, P.O. Box 335, Osage Beach, MO. 65065.
