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.

Dear Dez, I'm so sorry to hear that you are gone from this earth. You were a smiling face in a sometimes cruel world. You were a kind soul, who truly cared about everyone you met. You touched many lives, including mine & Alia's. We are so happy that you, Clarissa & Mounir came to visit us in our home in Delft, and are just so sorry that we didn't reciprocate by coming to visit you & meet your beautiful little girl. I will always remember you as a warm, loving, similing, honest, God-fearing, wonderful man. Rest in peace.

To Desmond's family: My heart goes out to you. May God grant you the strength & fortitude to face this huge loss. Our heartfelt condolences & very best wishes go to you.

With warm regards,
Afshaan (& Alia)
