For those of you who remember him from Swept Away circa 1995, to those of you who may read about him in today's Gleaner: Dean Moriah was one of the entertainment coordinators that greeted my wife Lisa and I on our Honeymoon on May 21, 1995. We didn't know anything at all about Swept Away, but thanks to Dean's warm smile and hospitality we quickly felt at home at the resort.
Lisa and I stayed in touch with Dean and another entertainment coordinator. All these years later, Dean had become more like family than friend, staying with us in the US several times. Meeting his sister in Jamaica and his father in Washington, DC. While he was entertainment director at another resort in Montego Bay, Dean had my band fly down and perform in 2003 and again in 2004. We've been honored to be guests at his home and we've partied like rock stars over the years.
Make no mistake about it, Dean made you feel like a rock star.
Google search his name for the details, but Dean is no longer with us. Swept Away repeaters may know the name, but Swept Away Entertainment as we now know it is in part a result of the special talents of Mr. Dean Moriah. Let's not forget "The Dream", he's part of your Swept Away experience and always will be. RIP Dean, you will be sorely missed.
