Leslie E. Vashaw

April 25, 1957 — December 9, 2022

Leslie E. "Les" Vashaw, 65, of Berlin, passed away on December 9, 2022 at the Androscoggin Valley Hospital, following a period of illness. He was born in Berlin on April 25, 1957, the son of Clayson “Pat” and Idel (Crotto) Vashaw. Leslie attended Berlin schools and had joined the US Army following graduation. He resided in the Laconia area for many years, where he worked for several of the local manufacturing companies in various capacities, until moving back to Berlin 20 years ago. Leslie enjoyed woodworking, was an avid reader, and enjoyed playing family poker games and cards – especially solitaire. He also loved art in all forms, but particularly enjoyed drawing.

Family includes his daughter Kelley MacLean and husband Aaron of Milan, NH; grandson Dean MacLean, also of Milan; sisters Sally Laberge of Berlin, NH, Evette Morel of Killeen, TX, and sister-in-law Betty Vashaw of Venice, FL; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was predeceased by his siblings Gloria Tibbetts, Pearl “Wee Wee” Lessard, James Vashaw, and Edward “Butch” Vashaw.

At this time, there are no services. The family wishes to thank all those who have donated towards Leslie's funeral expenses for their kindness and support. Memories and condolences may be shared online at
