Wesner Desir was called home on February 2nd, 2023 at his Port-au-Prince home in Haiti at the age of 76. Wesner was born on October 21st, 1946 in Haiti to the late Ducasse Desir and Clara Cerezier. He was raised along with seven brothers and sisters who gave him his family nickname “Nene”.
In 1990 at the age of forty-four, Nene made a life changing decision to leave his now wife Edith and child Kenia and head to the United States. He was accompanied by his late brother Lunold Desir. They always told stories about the hardship they endured during that time. Over the years they both found numerous hard-working jobs but his career began as a Labeler at Waste Management in Tinton Falls. Wesner worked there for 20 years before he retired in states in 2014. Nene still having all the energy in the world, became a entrepreneur he built homes and rented them out to the locals in Haiti.
Two years after embarking on his journey, his dreams became a reality, his family made it to the states and he could finally begin the life he envisioned. In 1996 the family welcomed a baby girl not only would she be his pride and joy but his best friend. Nene made sure that he raised his children in the Haitian Christian Community where the attended church every Sunday. He was a part of the committee for Ebenezar Church of God of Prophecy.
Nene was one of a kind. He was always cool, calm and collective. He was a man of few words, unless he was watching Brazil play in the world cup. When Wesner did speak his words were packed with so much wisdom and grace that he could make a whole room feel comfortable and at home. His sense of humor was renowned. He had love for action movies (Jean Claude Van Dam, Steven Segal) Haitian sitcoms and soccer. He enjoyed traveling back in forth from the states and Haiti where he was adored by all the locals and his in-laws. Wesner “Nene” Desir will be deeply missed by his loved ones.
Wesner is survived by his wife Edith, his children Erika, Junior, Alexandra, Jameson and Kenia. The ones he treated as his own his niece Jessica Pierre and Gregory Devilme; his grandchildren Aiden, Gabriella and Emily Nasanes. He was also loved by his sons-in-laws Willy and Wilkendo. His nieces and nephews Chescka, Jenny, Melissa, Junior Desir, Smith Ganthier and his older sister Mme Charles. Also loved by the Valme family, Nasanes family, Ganthier family and the Dunac family.
