He will be cremated on Tuesday the 24th of March at Westgaarde,Ookmeerweg 275, Am*dam-Osdorp, 13:15-14:00, so here you can say your last fare-well.
Afterwards there will be a celebration of his life & friendship at the Cameleon Theatre, 3e Kostverlorenkade 35, Am*dam, from14:00-17:00.
We will miss this outstanding wonderful being, who has always been so generous to us & all the people we've known.
Am*dam feels more empty now.
May he be in peace, liberated from this confusing world...........

Nick Leslie
1951 - 2009

Sadly, Nick Leslie, the Pulcinella of Amsterdam, passed away this week. He was 57.
He leaves his brother, Robert, sister-in-law Christine, and nephews Nicholas and Cherno.

To his friends Nick was Mbongi: loyal friend, portly Dreamer, larger-than-life storyteller, cook, undercover glutton, raconteur, and not least, a sympathetic shoulder to many.

Friends and well-wishers are invited to say farewell to him next Tuesday, 24 March 2009. The funeral will be held at crematorium Westgaarde, from 13.15 - 14.00. There will be no service or speeches.

Nick liked few things more than a good party. We hope you will join us in celebrating his life and friendship at the Cameleon Theatre, from 14.00 - 17.00 on the same day. The stage was the environment that Nick loved best – except for kitchens! – and we will have plenty of opportunity for song, dance and reminiscence there.
