He was educated in the public schools of Accomack County. He attended Mt. Olive Baptist Church. At a young age, Lester began driving truck and made it his lifetime career. He took pride in working hard and was dedicated to his profession.
Lester was a family man who enjoyed spending time with all of his family and friends. He was known for his smooth hand clutch and foot shifting techniques, which led him to defeat many of the heavy hitters around the globe. He therefore became known as the original “Street King!”
