Melanie typed: “Des had the softest hands of anyone I ever met and the kindest of hearts.

“It was an education and a privilege to work with him for the years that followed.

“We worked long hours but always laughed lots, not least because when it it was showtime he would always tell me I looked like robbers dog!

“These years I will never forget and nor will I forget him.
