Lionel Stephens

I became very fond of ‘Steve’ from the moment in his book when he referred to me as ‘the bearded Macdonald coming to add stability to the Geography Dept and coach on the river’.  He was a wonderful teaching mentor and a very good neighbour.  We lived side-by-side on Bowden, where I remember Pat helping my wife Lindsay with our two boys, Jenny babysitting for us, and Nick trying to sell us windfall apples he had collected in the orchard!  I was able to repay him a little by helping him learn how to use operating systems and (5¼”!) floppy discs when he first computerized the OP database.  In more recent years, our paths crossed when our weekly walking group often came upon him in Goring.  RIP
