You may know this, Kis and variations Kiss, Kish, meaning Small in Hungarian, are one of the most common Hungarian surname, and they're pretty much interchangeable. Lucky for you, or may not it, Kish is the least common of the above names, and with the also rear Dezso given name combination is so uncommon in fact, that not one arrival recorded in the US.
I searched all immigration records, and found one Naturazation Record, dated 1936 in California as follows:

Name:        Dezso Kish
[Dezo Kish]
Age:        64
Birth Date:        24 Apr 1871
Birth Location:        Hungary
Spouse:        Mary
Children:        Irene, Mary, Leona, Louis
Arrival Year:        1906
Issue Date:        16 Mar 1936
State:        California
Locality, Court:        Southern District, Central Division, Los Angeles, California, District Court
Record Type:        Declaration of Intention

Take a look of it and see if it could be your g.father. If it's a possibility, than it could be a match with the one EllisIsland arrival Dezso Kiss who was born in the same yeat 1871, if not could you give approximate birth year for your g.father.
Hope this helps.
