Hayden P. “Lord Tokyo” Desiree, age 80 years old, passed away on April 12, 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

He was born on June 20, 1934, in Loubiere, Dominica to Ferdinand Desire and Alfreda Desiree. There he worked as a taxi driver but his passion and love for music and entertaining allowed him to travel the world and became well known as ‘Lord Tokyo.’

During that time he married his love, Clemencia Desabaye, on May 26, 1962. In later years, he moved to New York with his family and worked as a security guard. He still continued his musical career which was his passion and preferred profession.

Tokyo is survived by daughters Roselyn, Hedda, Annmarie, Marilyn, Jasmine and Daverne Desiree; sons Burt, Nathaniel, Kimani, Eusief, and Zamore Desiree; 28 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren; sister Vera Benjamin; brother Ronald Desiree and many relatives and friends too numerous to mention.

He was preceded in death by his parents, three siblings and two children.

His funeral will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015 at Frank Barone Funeral Home in Brooklyn, NY and he will be cremated shortly thereafter.
