Tributes were paid last night to a well-known Birmingham businessman and Midland rugby stalwart following his sudden death at the age of 39.
Harry Jeavons-Fellows, a corporate financier at Aberdeen Murray Johnstone Private Equity in the city, had recently undergone surgery for an Achilles tendon operation and was on his way for a check-up on Tuesday when he fell ill. He died later in hospital.
Last night his brother Dick said: "He was a wonderful chap. I know he was my older brother and I'm making him sound superhuman but he was just so enormously talented in everything he did."
Harry, a father-of-three, had worked at Aberdeen Murray Johnstone since 1999 and colleague Mike Collis said he would be sorely missed by everyone at the firm.
He said: "Harry was fairly prolific in the years he has been here and we are all devastated. It is awful."
Neil Mitchell, director of rugby at League Two club Stourbridge where Harry was a coach and former player, spoke of the club's devastation.
He said: "When I first joined Stourbridge 11 years ago, Harry was the first person to introduce himself to me and he made me feel very welcome.
"We became very firm friends and I was chatting to him only last week. He was one of the happiest and jolliest chaps I have ever had the privilege of knowing. He always had a smile on his face and he was a marvellous club man.
"I am absolutely devastated by this terrible news and it has come as a huge shock to the club."
Harry was the eldest of four children - three brothers and a sister - from a well known rugbyplaying family.
His father, John, is a former Stourbridge captain and former RFU committee member for North Midlands. He is now Stourbridge's honorary commercial director.
Harry was born in South Africa but the family moved to the Black Country when he was a child. He attended the Grange School in Stourbridge and won a scholarship to Gordonstoun where he was was made Guardian, the equivalent to Head Boy.
While north of the border he was also capped as a centre by Scotland Schools, before playing for England Colts. He was also captain of Bristol University, where he read accountancy.
He switched to prop and played in Stourbridge's front row alongside his brother Tom, a hooker. He remained actively involved with the club until his death, coaching in its mini and junior sections.
Stourbridge's League Two game against Moseley on Saturday will go ahead as planned, as will a prematch lunch to celebrate 40 years of rugby at Stourton Park. A minute's silence will be observed before kick-off in Harry's memory.
John Duckers, business editor of The Birmingham Post, said: " Harry Jeavons-Fellows was one of the most respected businessmen of his time. He was a corporate financier of some repute and always did deals with a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed across the business community."
