I don’t know where to start. It still feels very odd to refer to him in the past tense. From his vibrant ties to extraordinary experiments, it’s impossible not to have been amazed by Mr. Fell. I had the honour of having him teach me and he always found ways to make classes enjoyable. During the DofE expeditions, he was an incredible source of motivation and I loved hearing about his life adventures. How he was able to teach different classes with a variety of students, organise DofE expeditions, and plan and lead boarders’ weekend trips is a mystery. Yet, a mystery only Mr. Fell could solve and execute brilliantly. It was upsetting to learn he was in the hospital and when I called and spoke to his lovely wife, I didn’t realise the extent to which his illness had gotten so I couldn’t believe it when I heard the news. I still can’t fully believe I’m writing this now.
My thoughts are with his family members and Mr Fell will forever be remembered and will definitely be missed by all who knew him.
