Loooking for the family of a Desmond Richard Harris las knwo in 2002 in Joondalup.
gaileliz has been a Family Tree Circles member since Dec 2012.
I am one of Des's sons. He was born in India in 1931, was married in 1952 and his first wife (my mother) died in 1979. Des's second wife Anne survives him in Perth WA.
Hi, thank you for your reply, I have placed this advert on behalf of my husband. My husband was born in October 1964 in Wandsworth and lived in Balham, London. I realise this may be a shock and no offense is meant what so ever but he found out that Desmond was his father and in fact he travelled to meet him to Perth in 2003 and had lunch with him for a brief meeting which last about 2 hours.
He knows he has children but has never met any of them as he was told that no one was to know of him as it would upset his family. My husband was very pleased that he had met him and didn't want to upset his family life but he know he has passed away because we have seen the death record and he now feels that maybe he could try to trace his siblings and fill some gaps in his life.
Prior to going to meet him in Australia he did ring and speak to His second wife Anne. On a couple of occasions after their meeting over a period of years he did ring but she would never let him speak to him saying he was too ill or that he didn't want contact - over the years my husband stopped trying ....you can only take so many knock backs.
During his conversation with Desmond He did say he had children from his first marriage and from his second marriage but never gave specifics as he was adamant that he was never to contact any of them while he was alive as he said that non of his children would want anything to do with my husband anyway.
So nothing ventured nothing gained.....here goes ...my husband's name is Bill Homer...we live in Prestatyn in North Wales .......his email address is [email protected]
Thank you very much for taking the time to reply and I hope that you do keep in touch.. Gail
