  • Des was/is my Dad.Yes he was John's Dad but he was also Dad to Rachelle and Jan.He was married to Clare(our mother),Joyce and then Avis. He was born 3rd December 1926,making him 90years this year-2016. I was VERY proud of my Dad,indeed my uncles and my brother John.I was proud to be an army brat. I miss him every day but know he is where the Johnnie Walker is always flowing and the "King" is always on the jukebox. Rest in Peace,Dad-I love you.
