We will miss you Des. You were so selfless and gave so much to so many. You had a great sense of humour and a kind and caring heart. Thank you for being an amazing friend.

Des was one of a kind. Constantly working to help others. Week days/weekends, it never mattered to him. He had a love for his cat Trouble. A constant companion. I just hope Troubles has been removed, I will never forget him.
