Gerald E. “Gerry” Bell 1949-2019
On Friday, June 7, 2019, Gerald E. “Gerry” Bell, loving husband and father of three, passed away at his home in Chewelah at the age of 70.
Gerry had a passion for life and family. He touched so many lives as a friend and coach. He had a kind and compassionate spirit. He was such a joy to be with! He had a beautiful smile and a twinkle in his eye. He was always “just peachy.”
He survived a year of treatment for small cell carcinoma of the prostate. He remained quick-witted and “special.”
He is survived by wife Patti, two sons and a daughter: Ken and Jessika Bell, St. Paul, MN; Jerred and Jamie Bell, Colbert, WA; and Jessica and Adam Berg, Deer Park, WA. He is also survived by seven grandchildren; his mother, Betty Bell; and two sisters, Sharon (Mike) Dunniway and Bev (Mark) Thompson.
He is preceded in death by his father, Roscoe Bell and brother, Ronald Bell. A special thank you to Dr. Lund and staff, Dr. Maestas and staff, also, to family and friends for their love and support during this journey.
A “celebration of life” will be held at a later date.
