Derby Ram Obit: Lionel Stanley RIP (Dewsbury, 3 April 2008) (22) RE: Obit: Lionel Stanley RIP (Dewsbury, 3 April 2008) 05 Apr 08

Sylvia Needham here.

Liam, I'm afraid it is the same Dr Lionel Stanley who taught ICT at Bruntcliffe and used to organise the barn dances for the PTA.

Lionel loved singing, and he could sing himself, but was too shy to do stand up and lead. He also loved dancing, although it sometimes took a couple of pints before he got up enough courage to dance.

Although a shy man, and it wasn't easy to get a laugh out of him (Lynn Heraud and Pat Turner being two of the most successful ones), at school he seemed like a different person - he really loved teaching the pupils, joking with them, especially about football.

He was a staunch Newcastle United supporter, and at the Shoddy, he would either be in a very good mood (Newcastle having won and Leeds lost), a good mood (Newcastle having won and Leeds either drawing or won), or not such a good mood (Newcastle having lost and Leeds won), or a bad mood (Newcastle having lost to Leeds), as he knew he would get a ribbing at school from his pupils.

He will be missed.
