My deepest condolences to the entire family. I never met David in person but I knew of him through my friendship with Juddian. I had a lot of respect and admiration for him as a big brother. Keep him memory in your hearts, it will help you to heal.

When I started following Christ couple years ago, Elder Dennisur became a light to my unknown. He assured me if God's presence with me and I should not hesitate to push forward. When I was unsure of what role I should play in the church and to give back, he was right there telling me to do anything that would help the church and the community - just do God's work. His words of assurance still echo in the distance and will be there for a long time. Rest my brother in Christ...till we meet again.

David, you will be missed by a wide Cross section of people. You did well in life; you have touched many peoples lives. It's a pity life had to come to an end at this time but none of us know when our time will come. Rest well brother and may God continue to watch over your soul.
Glenn.

I have had the opportunity of meeting this great man while working at Sandals Whitehouse. Sir D would normally come to the property after he leaves work, calls me as soon as he got on the property and we'd sit and chat. He would share his wealth of knowledge, gives financial advise, give some insights on his life's journey. He was a father figure, a friend and a mentor, as they say never scatter roses after someone is gone but the memories of you will live on in our hearts Sir D. Sleep on old friend...

We met last year August at my grandfather's 96th birthday and it was such a pleasure to have met such a humble soul and a new member to our family. It was like we had known each other for a long time even my son J J spoke and played with you as if you were already known. We are all saddened by this lost and may your soul rest in peace uncle David.

When i started coming to the Savlamar United Church and met you, you welcomed me. You always have good words of encouragement. I always look forward to those beach trips. You would give us jokes and we would just have lots of fun. I really admired how you knew the scriptures. Those evenings at Bible studies were awesome. I admired how you took care of your wife. In my eyes you were a great couple!
Hearing of your passing, i literally cried when i called your wife. God saw you suffering and decided to call you home. We will never understand......Sleep in eternal peace Bro. D. My sincere condolences to Sis Dennisur and the rest of family!

The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.

They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.

Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again.

My husband and i had the pleasure of meeting Sir D while we were working at Sandals Whitehouse. It was all fun talks and laughs from that moment on. He met each of our sons and he was so good with them all three; my children loves him too. A very jovial, motivational and caring individual has left us. But Sir D. your mark on this earth can not be erased. Rest in perfect peace.
Condolences to the Dennisur family from Amhal, Krystal, Amhal Jr., Romel and Khalim Reid

The reality has not even set in completely, but I find solace in the thought that you are resting in the arms of God. I know I speak for every young person when I say you were youthful, vibrant and someone we could talk to. We will forever appreciate the wisdom, the jokes, the memories made. We love you and miss you so much!! Rest on

So vibrant in life but life journey cut short. You blazed for a while as a comet streaking across the sky lighting many in your path. Only God knows the reason for life's brevity. You touched many lives leaving them much better for having met you. Your passion for life has been dimmed on earth but eternity awaits. RIP my friend you will be missed.

Uncle David,
I will never forget you. You have been a source of encouragement to so many young men. You have been an example of grace, intellect, and joy to me over the years. Your legacy will live on in all of us. It is hard to process the fact that you are gone. We look forward to the first resurrection when we shall meet again in another time and another place.
Posted by Taneek James on April 25, 2021
I am still processing this....the pendulum swings from surreal to real then back to surreal. Going through in slow motion at times....grateful for all the amazing memories. You lit up any space you were in, when you entered everything changed. You always wanted me and all your other nieces and nephews to soar and do well and I will with you as the wind beneath my wings. I thank God for your life and I always will. SIP uncle David I love and miss you soooo much.

David, my big brother, the one who took on the father role of his younger siblings. I.must say I'm one of the products of his generosity. He was a brother who always advised and give solutions to problems. My Bro I love you I life and in death. 26 years ago you walk me down the Isles without hesitation. That's a memory which stands out forever.
Love you DDD.

his Life

The Life of David Diago Dennisur BH(M), J. P.

Every family has a HERO! That one family member who is the life of the party, who you look forward to seeing because you know that you are going to get a belly full of laughter or you are going to be engaged in a thought provoking discussion! That SUPER SUPPORT who will attend every wedding, graduations , funerals  and any other special event...... In the DENNISUR Clan “ Uncle David/ big brother” was that HERO and though he was well known in Frome, Savanna-La- Mar, Westmoreland and even Jamaica.....to his family he was simply the cheerleader! Uncle David was the one to walk his sisters and nieces down the aisles, he stepped in and cared for his brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunties, and uncles....

Born on May 5th 1952 to the late Remessee and Eunice Dennisur in Ricketts River, Frome Westmoreland, David the 3rd of 12 children. Everyone who knows him and all is siblings will profess that David was a “ Mama’s Boy” 
every Sunday after church he would journey to Ricketts River, the family home just to lie in his mama’s bed and eat mama’s cooking. All the siblings emphasized that David’s favorite saying , not as a child growing up but even in his adult years, “ Mi a guh tell Mama!”

David’s early academic preparation began at Ms.Mack Basic School in Hunterswood, then Grange Hill Primary School and Frome School now called Frome Technical High School.  There is a popular saying in Jamaica parlance “ Jack of all Trade- Master of None” David defied that saying, he was a Jack ... David of all trades and he mastered them all...
Cub Scout
Social Worker
Accountant
Financial Controller
Manager
Farmer
Lay Preacher
Elder

David worked at the West Indies Sugar Company and gained a scholarship to attend The College of Arts Science & Technology (CAST). David also worked at the following companies:
Monymusk and Dunckenfield Sugar Companies
Head Office of National Sugar
Westmoreland Cooperative Credit Union - Savanna-La-Mar
Eagle Permanent Building Society - Savanna-La-Mar Branch
National Development Foundation of Jamaica - Montego Bay 
Manager of the RBTT Bank - Mandeville Branch
Opened and Managed the Savanna -La-Mar Branch of CIBC First Caribbean Bank until his retirement.
Since November 2020 he managed the Indian Jerk & Curry Restaurant and Lounge, Petersfield, Westmoreland.

David was a devout man of God who explored the Catholic, Jehovah Witness, Pentecostal and Presbyterian faiths. He was the Elder at the Savanna- La- Mar United Church and sometimes preached at different points of the United Church. He was passionate about God’s words and was very often argumentative and demonstrative about what the “scriptures declares”.
 Another passion was his love for politics to the point where he did not want to wear or use anything green in color yet he managed to maintain good friendships on both sides of the political arena. 

David loved his family - he assumed the role of being in charge and often caused Rosie and others to get the strap. Every niece, every nephew will tell that their favorite memory is going to Westmoreland and Uncle David packing up everyone in his truckand they travel to Bluefields Beach and upon their return journey stop at KFC.... smiles. David loved people and his greatest delight was being among children.
Though he struggled with the loss of daughter Davita at 2 years old in a major car accident in 1981 , his adopted daughter Kezia filled his life with love and joy was made full when his grandson Khaleel was born. 

David threw himself and his attention to Cub Scouts and later became the District Commissioner for Scouts, served on the School Boards of Frome Technical High School, Mannings School, Savanna-La-Mar Primary and Elite Preparatory. He also served on the Westmoreland Parish Development Committee, the Board of the Jamaica Library Service in Westmoreland, as Chairman of the HEART Management Advisory Committee and President of the Lay Magistrate’s Association, Westmoreland. 

David received the Badge of Honor for meritorious service to the Community from the Governor General of Jamaica. The happiest period of his life was when he bravely went down on one knee in a 500 packed dining room on a cruise ship and proposed to Heather- although Heather took some time to answer - she said yes and in May 12, 2012 they were married in England and spent their honeymoon in Paris. In Heather’s own words “ We lived, argued, laughed and loved”.

Covid-19 came in March 2020, and sadly David caught the virus in March 2021, if ever the outpour of love and support could have save someone, David would be alive today. We prayed earnestly and diligently but God had another plan and after 2 weeks in the Savanna-La-Mar Public General Hospital David, a true solder of the Cross, a warrior in this life, transitioned at 9:00 pm on March 28,2021.

David Diago Dennisur is gone to be with is father Remessee, mother Eunice, and brothers Samuel(Sam) and Lynford (DanDan)who predeceased him. He leaves behind his loving wife Heather, stepsons Michael and Christopher, daughter Kezia, grandson Khaleel. Brothers Kenroy, Conray and Worrell. Sisters Margaret(Madgie), Rose, Juliet, Eva, Sharmaine (Hopi) and Juddian. A host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. A void that can never be filled... what a loss not only for our family but for the community....Rest well our SUPERMAN,HERO and SUPPORTER! You have done well...your legacy and memory lives on!

We love you and miss you dearly Uncle DDD❤️

Never too busy ❤

Shared by Rochelle Dennisseur on April 29, 2021
     As an adult I now know how hectic and demanding life is on a daily basis. Because of this I now understand  how special Uncle David was as a person and how much he loved us as nieces and nephews.
    I remember going into the bank Uncle David managed when I was a child and how I'd do my transaction with the teller and when I was through I'd always ask to speak to Mr. Dennisur. The teller would walk into his office and then return to tell me he was available to see me. I thought nothing of it then because he was Uncle David,  but now I know that spoke volumes. So there I was a 9 year old sitting in his office talking about what was happening in my life (imagine what that conversation was like ).
     I now understand that even though he would have been busy, on those many occasions when I stopped by for my impromptu visits, the fact that he was never too busy for "that little girl" carved out a big space in my heart for my uncle and nothing not even death can take the love I have for him. 
    He watched me grow and as I got older he became more than my uncle, he became my friend. He encouraged and supported  me through my rough patches, he celebrated my accomplishments no matter how small and he always took the time to tell me how proud he was of the woman I've become. It always felt good to hear . Thank you Sir.
     I wasn't ready... but I am grateful to have had you in my life. Forever love Uncle David ❤
