IN MEMORIAM OF LES BOSSERT

(Palmyra, NJ – October 28, 2020) – Les Bossert, Corporate Records Manager for Montana Dakota Utilities (MDU), Bismarck, North Dakota, passed away unexpectedly on September 23, 2020. He had been with MDU, headquartered in Bismarck, North Dakota, for 38 years where he educated and trained three generations of employees on the basics of RIM, and how they fit into the larger scheme of that function.

Les is survived by his sons Trent and Evan (wife Lindsey), grandchildren Aubrey and Dylan, his mother, Rauha, and many other family members.

Les was a founding member of the ND-Bismarck/Mandan Chapter of ARMA International and served in many leadership positions. Les has been involved with the ARMA Midwest Rocky Mountain Region.

He recognized the need for professional certification and received his Certified Records Manager (CRM) designation from the Institute of Certified Records Managers (ICRM). At his passing, he was the ICRM Regent, Legislation and Appeals, and had served previously as a mentor, proctor, grader, and as chair of the website review committee.

Since 2007 Les greatly supported the Utilities Records information Management (URIM) group and was currently Moderator of its monthly conference calls. He was also instrumental in coordinating its three mid-year educational seminars.

Les was highly regarded in the records management profession and was extremely generous with both his time and knowledge. For those lucky to have known him, you would agree he was very much a man of family, faith and fellowship, and will be sorely missed.

Friends and associates have established the Les Bossert Memorial as our way to recognize his many contributions.  Please  visit Les Bosserts Memorial Page  http://armaedfoundation.org/les-bossert/
