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.

I first met Dez when I tried to recruit him to attend Colby College in Maine. Imagine my surprise when he showed up on the list of students interviewing me when I began my work at Lawrence. We became good friends. Staying in touch over the past 20 plus years has not always been consistent,but reconnecting was always good. I have lost a friend and will pray for him and the family he loved so much. Lloyd
