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.

(1) I am saddened today to hear of my great friends passing. We attended school in Ashdown, Ar before my brother and I moved to Texarkana. Dez was always incouraging others. A light in a very dark world. I want his children to know that they are his legacy and they too can and will accomplish all that their father did not get the opportunity to finish. I love you Dez and thank you for your friendship all those many years ago. You helped me be the person I am today.
