He created so many unique bonds with everyone that was in his life. Desmond loved to make sure he had the fanciest watches to add to his extensive collection.

Brother Desmond, I never had the pleasure of meeting you but had fellowship with you Sister Kimberley and her family in London. Your obituary leads me to conclude that the world is worse off without your warm presence. Rest In Peace my beloved brother. You are now in The Fathers' Arms. ❤️

Desmond Auntie Barbara and I loved you we thought you like our second son. I will miss our conversation as we laugh at Super Bowl Games and made those crazy bets. We will miss the good times but saw how you grew up to be the man, father and partner you are. You are now in the hands of God and the Family.
Uncle Ron and Auntie Barbara ❤ 💕

Desmond's smile and hearty laugh had never changed since childhood to when I saw him just a few months ago. His laugh will continue to resonate in my heart when I think back to all the wonderful childhood memories of Dez! Sending my warmest condolences to Desmond's family and loved ones.
