BELL – George William
May 15, 1942 – April 18, 2012
It is with great sadness that his family announces the passing of George Bell. He managed his passing with the same quiet strength and determination that he lived his life with. Georges passion for art and motors (anything from two cylinders to twelve) was something which he held close all of his life. It continued all the way from pinstriping cars in Honeymoon Bay’s back alleys in the late 1950’s to depicting some of the most famous race cars, rods and nitro Harleys of this generation.
Although he gave so much of his time to his graphic arts, his ultimate love and devotion were reserved for wife Sandy and son Ken. Sandy and George were soul mates whose presence at local shows and races were not only welcomed but hopefully anticipated.
George is also survived by his sister Penny Jacques (Denis), brother Bob (Maureen), and brother Pat (Donna). Also remembering George are mother-in-law May Colvin, sister-in-laws Shirley Mitchell (Fred), and Janice Chapman. As well there are numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
Sandy and family would like to recognize and thank the special people at Holyrood Manor for their kindness. A very special and personal thanks go out to niece Tracey who offered limitless love and support to George and Sandy through this traumatic time.
No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. would be appreciated.
