AIDS Community Remembers Lester Ward

September 28, 2010

The AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s Care and Housing Teams mourn the loss of case manger and housing advocate Lester Ward. Lester was a committed and caring individual who formally began his work in the HIV community in 1999 at Asian Human Services. Lester managed to find balance between his career and personal life. He was an avid movie buff and lover of the theater.

As an advocate and person living with HIV/AIDS, Lester happily served on the NorthSide HIV/AIDS Coalition and was determined to help people living with HIV. Lester believed in people and the human ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable circumstances.  He, too, basked in the glow of joy found on the faces of his clients once they achieved their goals. Success, whether large or small was worthy of celebration. For Lester, sharing client victories was the most rewarding aspect of his job.


AFC appreciates Lester Ward’s contributions to the sector. Rest in peace.

The details of Lester’s arrangements are as follows:
