Dez was an avid volunteer with both the Innisfail Minor Hockey and Innisfail Minor Lacrosse Associations. He was also a pivotal volunteer for the Innisfail Eagles AAA Senior Hockey Association.
Dez was a dedicated father and Danyon’s biggest fan. He traveled far and wide just to be a part of whatever Danyon was doing.
Dez was an amazing husband. His unconditional love and generosity will be greatly missed. He was Nikki’s best friend and constant voice of reason.
