  • Note:
    It is believed by some that Lester Schottler may have been a twin at birth, but the other one was stillborn. If it is true, no documentation or other evidence of it has been located to verify it. Verification is made even more difficult by the fact that he was born in San Francisco in 1903, and most of the city records went up in flames during the earthquake that destroyed the city in April 1906.

    Shirley Ann (Schottler) Bowman, writing many years later, said, "I have such fond memories of my Dad. He was a hard worker, a most honest man, and a good father to his kids. All of the kids at school used to tell me how lucky I was to have a Dad like him, as he was always so good to the kids that rode his bus." David Cann (Louise's son) remembers him as "the most purely honest person I have ever known. He once worried himself terribly over the fact that he mistakenly overcharged a lady by $1 for a printing order. Despite the fact the amount was small, he phoned her to make sure she was home, then got into the car and drove to her house to personally return the dollar to her. It was nothing more than a very minor math error on the invoice, and the amount was small, but he felt it was his error and he had to make it good right away. That is just the way he was, honest and truthful in every way that I was ever aware of."
