STEVEN D. PELL - Of Shelburne Falls, MA, died May 9, 2014, in the company of the loving children, Aaron Silver-Pell and Theda Silver-Pell.
Devoted son of his deceased parents, Sidney and Betty Pell. Loving brother of John Pell and his wife Elizabeth, Deborah Yaffee and her husband Marty, and Eric Pell and his wife Margery. Loving uncle to Ariele Yaffee, Dayna Demers, Adam Pell, Jonathan Pell, and Derek Pell. Dear nephew to Helen Preschel, Maidy Goldman, Albert Pell and his wife Fran. Dedicated husband to his former wife, Carol Silver.
Steve was born and lived in the Boston area most of his life. After serving in the Army during the Vietnam War, he received a doctorate in chemistry from Boston University. In addition to being a chemist, he was a talented photographer. After serving many years in the U.S. Postal Service, he moved to Shelburne Falls to care for his mother until her passing. He had a passion for science, and never stopped continuing his research in chemistry. He was a lover of all the arts, but it was his ability to find and appreciate the exceptional in the most simple things - a flower, a cup of coffee, a gentle breeze - that was an extraordinary art in itself.
He was deeply loyal in all things, continuing to drive across the state to get his hair cut from the same hairdresser he had been going to for decades as just one example. Above all else, he loved and cared for his family and endured much arduousness to achieve his life's work - fulfilling to the end his aspiration to be dignified, appropriate, and morally correct - a paragon of right conduct. Graveside services at Sharon Memorial Park, Dedham St., Sharon, MA on Tuesday, May 13 at 9:45 a.m., followed by an additional celebration of his life at the home of Eric Pell in Framingham, MA.
In lieu of flowers, donations in his memory may be made to the Bridge of Flowers, on which he enjoyed countless strolls, at: Bridge of Flowers Committee, Box 335, Shelburne Falls, MA 01370.
