This is a special edition of The Sleeper Hit: An interview with Meryl's grandfather six weeks before he died on March 25. Les Williams was the Director of Parks & Rec in Dover, OH for many years and was married to Kay Williams, a local reporter for the Times Reporter. In this interview, he shared stories about his life, some marriage advice, and his secret to being happy even late in life. He will be missed.

Les was inducted into the Cy Young Tuscarawas County Old Timers Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008, recognized for his playing, managing and umpiring. He was offered a contract by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1947, but did not report because of an arm injury. He also was a volunteer for many years at the Dover YMCA, where he also played, coached, and refereed in church league basketball games.
