Felly was a friendly, kind, and very cheerful person to be around. He was always supportive and would find time to have a chat, whether academic, putting the world to rights, or just having fun.
As many students and teachers will testify he was an enthusiastic teacher who thrived on sharing his passion for his subject. His expert knowledge and enthusiasm captured the attention of his audience. He was not only extremely well versed in Chemistry but also had a wide and deep knowledge of other scientific areas. Before teaching, Stephen worked for BNFL; he would more than happily share tales of his shenanigans and experiences.
Felly was passionate about American Football and would regularly go to watch the NFL games that took place at Wembley. He would have many late nights watching games on TV. As a Green Bay Packers supporter, he would grin when being called a “Cheesehead”. Thanks to him, I will always have a soft spot for the Packers.
My family got to know Felly through the boarding activities and enjoyed many adventures. He always greeted them by name with a huge smile on his face. They all knew him and were all very upset to hear the news of his illness and passing.
Stephen always made a lasting impression on those who met him. I feel very fortunate to have known him as a colleague and a friend. Felly, we will miss you!
