Stephen Pinder OH 1961 – 1970

Stephen’s time at Hymers enabled him to gain a place at a good university. However, always technically minded, he left early to devote himself to work he enjoyed most: working with his hands to create and repair a variety of electronic and mechanical devices.  In 1984 he married a Welsh girl, Mair, and went to live in South Wales. His family and friends in the East Riding regretted that this meant they did not see as much of him as they would have wished.

Adventurous, indeed sometimes slightly mischievous, he numbered among his interests hangliding  and a lifelong passion for the Welsh Highland Railway. Kind, indeed never unkind, he was always great fun to be with. He is mourned by Mair, his family including his parents and his many friends, some of whom made the long journey from Manchester in order to carry his coffin into the chapel.
