Leslie Bourne Contributed Much To His Community
Manassas Messenger, Oct 18, 1967

Death suddenly claimed the life of Leslie G. Bourne Oct. 4. He had made a contribution to his community and his fellow-man. Born Nov. 21, 1917 at Woodbridge he was the eldest son of Fannie R. Bourne and the late Willie G. Bourne. He married the former Eula Slusher of Manassas in 1936 and they made their home in Manassas ever since. Besides his widow, he leaves a son, Beverly Keith Bourne, and one granddaughter, his mother, 3 sisters and 1 brother. He had worked for the Department of Labor in the office of the administrative assistant, office of the secretary, until his retirement in 1964 as a result of ill health. Mr. Bourne was most active in community affairs. Prior to the curtailment of his activities because of failing health he was a member of the Manassas Volunteer Fire Company and privileged member until the time of his death. He had served as secretary to the Manassas Kiwanis Club for 10 years and was president of the Kiwanis Club during 1956-57. He also served on a committee of the Capital District Kiwanis International. He had been an active member of the Manassas Baptist Church, having served at one time as superintendent of the Sunday school, a teacher of intermediate boys class and also sang in the church choir. During his years of service in the Department of Labor, he received many citations for outstanding performance, one of which was presented to him by former President Dwight D. Eisenhower for the work he had done in 1960 for the Eighth World Congress International Society for the Welfare of Cripples. He also received another citation from the former Secretary of Labor James Mitchell for arrangements he made for the NATO conference held in Washington and at the invitation of the Acting Secretary of State attended the ceremony commemorating the 10th anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty in April, 1961. He had suffered for many years with bronchial asthma and emphysema. Funeral services were held at Manassas Baptist Church Saturday, Oct. 7, with interment in Stonewall Memory Gardens. Services were conducted by the Rev. Hugh Busey and Chaplain Richard M. Graham of Richmond.
