Kevin, who retired recently, was Senior Lecturer at the School of Education and was perhaps best known for his work to create the School for the Malagiri in Nepal, which opened in 2011.
Lorraine Harrison, former Head of the School of Education, who worked closely with Kevin for many years paid tribute to him: “It is with great sadness that we announce that our dear friend and colleague, Kevin Fossey, has passed away. We should like to extend our deepest sympathy to Kevin’s family and friends at this difficult time.
“Kevin’s unique personality and associated commitment to the teaching profession has influenced and inspired generations of children. There is little doubt that his work has had an immensely positive impact on the lives of countless young people.
