I am so sorry to hear about your sudden and unexpected loss.  Des will definitely be missed.  I worked with him at Wolf Furniture.  He would always say “I’m blessed!” with a big smile on his face when I asked how he was doing.  I enjoyed working with him.  May you have fond memories of your times together.

I played countless games in which Dez officiated and played along side him a few times. He was always up-beat, encouraging and a blast to be around. My condolences to his son and his family for the loss of a truly fine man. He impacted my life at a young age and I will always be grateful to have known him. A member of our hockey family.
