Desmond was co-author with myself and Eileen Smith on "Echoes Across Seymour" presenting 50 years of the history of the 19 neighborhoods of the Seymour area. My goodness what an incredible memory he had of the planning of this area! His introductions to each chapter are marvellous. Your friends at Deep Cove Heritage Society will surly miss your wisdom and participation. Thank you Desmond.
