Convoy in Loving Memory of Leslie John Rocher, Old Town, Yellowknife NWT.

Les Rocher, titan of YK property development, passes away “… It’s a tough loss for Yellowknife. He really did so much. “Les has been so important to Yellowknife,” Mayor Rebecca Alty said.
Councillor Niels Konge, another of Yellowknife’s construction leaders, said: “I don’t think there’s any single, one person who fully understands the scope of his contribution.”

‘Northern icon’: Yellowknife remembers Les Rocher Apr 27, 2020
“…Legendary Yellowknife real estate and property developer Les Rocher is being remembered as “northern icon.”
Rocher died Thursday just two days after his 63rd birthday.
Over his decades in the North, Rocher owned swathes of land and property across Yellowknife: shacks and cabins in the city’s Old Town neighbourhood, a modular-home subdivision on Kam Lake, several downtown buildings and even a few old barges.
In a Facebook post, N.W.T. Premier Caroline Cochrane described Rocher as a “northern icon” who will be remembered by many for his work ethic, no-nonsense attitude and his drives around town with his little dog sitting in the front seat….”
