The life of a great man, Des Walton was celebrated at Dilston Road Methodist Church. He discovered Jimmy Forsyth the local photographer, set up many local history groups, wrote many books, recorded memories, collected photos and took his own for the archive. He raised a wonderful family, remained committed to his interests and fun loving until the last. Sleep tight Des.

Hi Yvonne
My dad very much valued your friendship and you were brilliant at his funeral. Catherine will be in touch formally but thanks for all you did for him. Carry on the great work.
Graham (Des' son)

Thank you Graham. It`s very rare that we meet a genius and Des was one of the best. His legacy will benefit so many people. He is such a miss.
