He was born in Natchez, Mississippi, on Feb. 8, 1954, to the late Natalie Nolan and J.O. “Pete” Nolan. At age 2, his family moved to Pine Bluff, where he attended public school until 11th grade, when he was accepted early to the University of Arkansas. After three years at U of A, he was accepted into the University of Arkansas Medical School (UAMS) in Little Rock. He graduated from UAMS in 1979 and went on to work as an emergency room physician. He practiced in several communities around the state, including Hot Springs and Malvern, and he was elected to a term as Pulaski County Coroner in 1984.

For the family, my thoughts are with you. For Les, we grew up together, and I'm so glad we had several really good conversations this past year.
