Des was a resident of Amherstburg in his younger years and attended General Amherst Highschool. He had fond memories of his time as a driver with the Amherstburg, Anderdon and Malden (AAMA) Ambulance in Amherstburg. Des was a Union Gas retiree, and enjoyed his monthly lunches with the group. He was also an avid golfer for many years and spent many hours at the Links of Kent/Indian Creek Golf course. Later in life, he enjoyed coming out to the farm, and watching his grand daughters activities, he was a proud Poppa and was sure to tell his girls that every chance he got.
Special thanks to some very special angels in Dads life including his neighbors Kelci and Aug that helped him out tremendously. Words cannot express how thankful I am for his best friend Brian who never left Dads side and was there to look out for him, as well as Brenda. Your kindness will never be forgotten. Thank you to the PSW’s at Bayshore for keeping Dad comfortable and well cared for these last couple of months.
