• Creating a Community Where Everyone Belongs

Clive Fellows, 5th August 1957 – 14th June 2019

We’re sad to announce the passing of Clive Fellows, who was part of the My Life family, and much loved by us all.

Born in West Bromwich, Clive was a keen supporter of West Bromwich Albion and even met future England Manager Roy Hodgson during his time at the club. He adored going on holiday and leapt at any chance of adventure, from swimming with dolphins in Mexico, to sailing for a week on a tall ship in the channel, Clive even once flew with The Red Arrows and loved every minute of it!

A cameraman and actor with One Vision Media Productions for over twenty years, Clive had a very special way about him that meant people warmed to him wherever he went. In recent years Clive spent a lot of time at My Life, quickly becoming part of the fabric of the organisation. My Life CEO Caroline Tomlinson says of Clive:

“Clive was a true inspiration to many people, demonstrating what it was like to live an ordinary life with support needs. He was a popular member of the community and was known for his gentle soul, kindness and sense of fun. Even as he became older and his dementia got worse his personality remained – our team loved supporting him as he made them laugh, cry and got up to so much mischief all in one shift. You can’t help but love him, was a common phrase used – we will all miss him so much, but we are all smiling because he was here, and we had the pleasure of knowing him.”

Describing Clive, his brother Robert says: “He was such a fun-loving guy with a terrific sense of humour, everybody loved him. He had an infectious smile and an infectious personality, he was just a wonderful, wonderful lad. When they gave the charisma out in our house, he got it all. He touched everyone everywhere he went.”

Paying tribute to Clive, Caroline Tomlinson perfectly sums up how we all feel about him:

“Clive, you showed us the importance of family and friends and what being included really felt like. You were popular, witty, playful and so much fun to be with. Everyone loved every special moment they were with you.

Today we are so sad you have left us but are equally so happy we had the privilege of knowing you. You truly are leaving a legacy and are a legend of our time. Sleep tight our wonderful friend Clive – we love you to the moon and back.”

All our love and thoughts are with Clive’s brother Robert, sister-in-law Christine and the rest of his family and friends at this sad time.
