Les McCoun

Lester E. McCoun, 75, of Ambler, a retired technology sales specialist and financial planner, died on Saturday, January 29, 2011 after a long battle with Parkinson ’s disease.

Mr. McCoun was raised in Omaha, Nebraska and then went on for an undergraduate degree at Elmhurst College and a Masters in Business from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. He served as a commissioned officer in the Army’s Medical Corps before beginning a career with IBM in Charlotte in the early 1960’s. He stayed in the field of technology sales for the next 28 years and then opened his own financial planning business before retiring in 2002. A lifelong Mason and long-time member of Jarrettown United Methodist Church, he could often be found working in the yard or building furniture in his shop, both avocations in which he delighted. Numerous family vacations to the Outer Banks and decades long friendships with the “Connecticut Crowd” and area friends were another source of great joy. But his deepest satisfaction came from investing in his own family and seeing his grandchildren (Rachael, Christine, Josh, Sara, Alison, Brian, and Chris) be born and blossom.

He fought with courage and dignity against Parkinson ’s disease for the last 23 years of his life with the loving support of his family and a team of dedicated caregivers.

He was the son of the late Geneva F. and Leonard P. McCoun and is survived by his wife, Sue B. McCoun; three children, Holly M. Foster, David E. McCoun and Robert B. McCoun; seven grandchildren; and a sister, Elizabeth M. Smith. A

Memorial service will be held on February 19th, 11:00 a.m. at Jarrettown United Methodist Church (1458 Limekiln Pike Dresher, PA 19025-1116). Family will receive friends at the church beginning at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The National Parkinson Foundation (Parkinson.org/PO Box 5018, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5018) or Jarrettown UMC.
