  6. Des was my close friend from 1954 to the present. We shared many adventures as young men and were beside each other at our weddings. Des witnessed the gliding accident which killed my brother Keith in December 1956 and Des became like a big brother.
    His love and support of Anita in her final illness was inspirational. My deepest sympathies go to Alan, Greg and Angela and their families, and I want them to know that he was loved, and will be sadly missed.
