In loving memory of Ian Fellingham who sadly passed away on 24th August 2020. Ian was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, husband and friend who will be so missed by all that knew him.

He had just turned 60, he was still so young.

Ian was born in Dorchester on 20th July 1960, to Sheila and John Fellingham. He spent his childhood making memories with his older brother Paul.

In 1991 along came his daughter, Zöe who he thought so much off and was so proud off.

In 1996, Ian met Sue who he spent 23 wonderful years with until her sad departure just last year. Ian loved Sue with all his being and was completely heartbroken when she passed.

Ian worked as a mechanical engineer for many years, he was a hard working man in all aspects of life and made life long friends in his colleagues.

Ian loved nothing more than long walks with Tulip, his and Sues lovable Gordon Setter. He loved holidays abroad, his train sets and spending time with his loved ones. He lived a very full and happy life. Most recently he found happiness with his partner, Carla who was with Ian every day before his passing. Ian thought a lot of Carla and she brought back his sparkle after the tragic loss of Sue.

The loss of Ian was a great shock to us all. No one expected it. Ian spent the week leading up to his death in the Acute Stroke Unit in Bournemouth hospital after suffering a life threatening stoke. After 4 day’s of being hooked up, endless brain scans and hourly checks he began to recover. Ian just wanted to come home. Ian died very suddenly a few days later of a blood clot to the lung, we can take solace that it was quick and painless for him but this doesn’t make it any easier for those he left behind.

His daughter Zöe was there every day, talking about all the things they would do when he was allowed to leave. Taking him out in his wheelchair for fresh air and a chance to see the sun, but all of their plans were cruelly taken away.

It is with broken hearts we share this news, we want everyone to remember Dad as the kind, wise, brave and thoughtful man he was right to the end of his life. With his dry sense of humour and loving nature, he really was one of a kind and had the biggest heart and we will miss him so so much.

We ask not for flowers but for donations in memory of Ian that will benefit the Acute Stroke Unit at Bournemouth Hospital.

Ian’s funeral will be held on 17th September at 1pm. Numbers are sadly limited due to the current pandemic for both the funeral and the wake but the funeral can be streamed live. The link for this will be shared soon so please check back on this page. Please only arrive at the funeral/ wake if you have heard from Ian’s daughter Zöe. We are sorry we can’t have everyone there but we would love everyone to raise a toast to Ian on this day and celebrate his life.

Be kind to each other, life really is too short x

I worked with Ian a few years ago when he was working as a manufacturing engineer. I have many fond memories of him, he was a genuinely nice guy, always warm and friendly and was an excellent engineer, who was respected and liked by all of his peers. I heard this news with extreme sadness and seeing these pictures of Ian has bought the memories flooding back. Even though this is a very sad time, those pictures made me smile. Hopefully that will be his epitaph,. A warm and friendly guy who will be missed. I hope his family can find some solace in that. RIP friend.

Ian and I worked together for a few years. Working away from home every week and being away from family and friends is pretty tough at times. Ian was always a friendly face and a good hugger too. We sat together at lunch time and talk and laugh and then get back on with our jobs. I miss those lunch time chats, hearing all the stories about Ian’s family, his crazy pets and the endless DIY jobs he seemed to have on the go, his excitement at counting down the weeks to the next holiday. Ian was like my work Dad always happy to explain to me how to fix my car, my washing machine or anything else I wouldn’t have a clue about. I’m still not sure why I had to drive around with his online order of brass handles for weeks at a time because he kept forgetting to get them from me ha ha hope those brass handles fitted whatever they were for! Rest in peace Ian “me duck” xxxx

I had the pleasure of working with Ian at AgustaWestland and most recently at Cobham.
Ian was a very knowledgeable Engineer but had a great sense of humour and was a pleasure to work with.
It came as a massive shock when we heard the very sad news as we had been informed that Ian’s health was improving.
Ian will be very sadly missed and I would like to pass on my condolences to all of his Family.

As one of Tulip's 'aunties' it was with great sadness to hear of Ian's passing. Ian dog walked and enjoyed coffee and cake with us. Shall miss his dry quips and humour, rest in peace.
