We are deeply saddened by Des's passing. To us, he was like a member of our family.

To me (Andrew), he was my second father and helped to rear me. I will never forget him and the love he shared with all of us.

Again, we offer our deepest condolences to his wife, Sue, and immediate family.

I am sure he went to Heaven. Andrew Blake

Such a lovely man he will be dearly missed

My condolences to you, Sue, & family. I am an ex Celebration Choir member & have fond memories of Des & our many years singing together with Linda. He was a lovely, gentle man & thoughts of him will always bring a smile to my face.
