Dr. Lesh Passes

Posted on 24th January 2014 at 16:58

Stunned and shaken to their core, the staff at Dream Dentistry in Longview says that they do plan to carry on with the legacy of Dentist William G. Lesh, 44, following his sudden death Wednesday night. The Cowlitz County Sheriff’s office says that they eventually identified the body found Wednesday night at the Toutle River Rest Stop at that of Lesh, who apparently was heading to Olympia, where his family now lives. CPR was attempted, without success. Cowlitz County Coroner Tim Davidson says that there were no signs of a crime, violence or foul play, so they’re really not sure why he died. There was a bump on Lesh’s head, but Davidson says that may have happened as Lesh got out of his car and then fell to the ground. An autopsy is planned for tomorrow. Obviously, the staff at Dream Dentistry in Longview is devastated by the news, but they also say that they plan to continue on with Lesh’s legacy. Dream Dentistry, which also has an office in Olympia, will be closed through next week; Lesh has a brother and another relative that are also dentists, and his son is also in dental school at this time. The office says that while Lesh is “irreplaceable,” they also plan to continue on with his dream, and will continue to operate the offices as his legacy.
