in Stephen's memory

Stephen Quinnell (aka James Phillips)

Stephen took his own life on 4 November 2016, aged 35. He was a troubled young man, deeply damaged by years of severe abuse as a boy which he could never shake off and which led to the mistakes he made. The burden was too great and a small event was the trigger for his suicide . But if you got behind the defensive outer shell, he was a gentle, generous, loving and caring person. He adored his dog Belle and because Stephen was mainly reliant on benefits because of his depressive illness, the PDSA in Sunderland looked after when she needed any treatment. She was generally healthy so it was not often, but he knew the PDSA was always there.
Stephen loved his dog so if anybody wants to donate to the PDSA in his memory,

Your messages:

I never met Stephen but I've read a little about his story. A small contribution towards helping his beloved pet Belle is my way of acknowledging his struggle.
RIP Stephen.
