Ainsley will be sorely missed by every person that had the privilege of meeting him. His smile was infectious and it was something that he rarely failed to do. His charismatic personality and warmth allowed him to help and supported countless young people that desperately needed someone that was genuinely caring in their life. The support and love that he shared with the young men he worked with also extended to those fellow employees that he worked with every day.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family, loved ones and friends.

Mr Leslie, though we have never met in person, I feel as though I have known you for as long as I have known your daughter, Lorna. She spoke your name with such love and admiration. This is definitely a hard one for her but rest in peace and I know that you will always be holding her hand. Lorna, my dear friend, may the peace of our Father God be with you and the family during this sad time.

Ainsley was a very good man. I enjoyed having him in the training classes I facilitated (he was an excellent participant and clear "learner"). More importantly I always found my discussions with him very valuable in terms of working with kids or just life philosophy in general. He had a positive energy about him that was infectious for people...simply put "a good man".

Didn't know Mr. Leslie at all, but as a dear friend to his daughter Lavonne, I know he was a wonderful man. I feel deeply saddened that he can no longer be here with his family and friends or to see his daughter walk across the stage as she grabs her degree. Although he isn't present, he's guiding his love ones daily. Condolences goes out from me to the family and I will keep all of you guys in my prayers.
