Leslie, Gilbert "Gil" E. Age 70, of Eagan, passed away peacefully on August 21, 2006. Preceded in death by parents, Bill and Ruth Leslie. Survived by wife of 42 years, Margo; children Paul and Shaun (Rick) Olson; granddaughters Erin and Meeghan Olson; brothers Don (Peg) Lewis, Bill (Joanne), Jack (Sharon); and many nieces and nephews. Gil served in the Army before returning to Colorado State University to pursue his teaching degree. He traveled the globe as a Dept of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS) math teacher for 28 years with assignments in Japan, England and Germany, retiring in 1993. Most recently he spent summers selling tickets and staffing the information booth for his beloved Minnesota Twins. Gil was a unique personality and adventurous spirit who touched everyone with whom he came in contact. He made us laugh, loved to tell stories, and enjoyed a good beer. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends the world over. Mass of Christian Burial 10:30 am Friday, August 25th at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, Eagan.
