Remembering Dez          

On Wednesday, November 24, 2010, Desmond Saunders-Newton, affectionately known as Dez, left this world. A tragic loss for all who knew him, a dear friend and mentor to so many, a husband, a father, a brother, a son, and so much more... Our hearts are heavy. Dez left his one-of-a-kind impression all over the world, with his brilliant mind, his warm heart and his contagious smile. Please share here how Dez left his impression on your heart, mind and soul with stories, pictures, memories, and thoughts, along with your prayers for his family, his wife Clarissa, his son Mounir, and his daughter Ayiana.

In support of Dez's most precious legacy, the Saunders-Newton Fund has been created for the current and future education of Mounir and Ayiana. Please visit to find out how you can help.

dez..i wanted to add to my previous comment. you were a guiding angel when i was at rand. your spirit..your love of the human condition always brought out the best in me. your mentorship was gentle yet direct. i could always count on your advise and encouragement when trying to achieve some academic goal i had in mind. i remember so fondly when you and clarrisa joined me in santa fe to go horse back riding. that memory always brings me laughter..fondness and complete love. prayers are constant for you and your precious children. please be at the knowledge that dez is somwhere with The Master..with his radiant smile and his cogent understandings..and i just know that the world became a better place becausev of dez. rest now my brother..and i know in my silent prayers at the end of the day..i will think of you and i will smile. loving you forever..susan
