Stanley R Bell
Dec 15, 1934 – Sept 14, 2015
On Monday, September 14, 2015 Stanley Roberts Bell went home to be with his Savior. Stan was born on December 15, 1934 to Stanley and Violet Bell. His childhood years were spent in Victoria with his 4 siblings, Lorraine, Karey, Larry and Shannon.
Stan worked many years in the forest industry beginning in Honeymoon Bay and then Nanaimo as a sawmill production supervisor. Stan married Dianne Campbell in 1961 and together they raised their 4 children until Dianne’s passing in 1985. Stan and his family moved to Port McNeill in 1980 where Stan worked as a heavy equipment operator.
In 1992, Stan married Beverly and they settled in Qualicum Beach. Stan was an avid fisherman, hunter, gardener and storyteller. Many knew that a day on Stan’s “Bell Boy” would be an experience not soon forgotten and, more often than not, a very successful fishing trip.
Stan leaves to cherish his memory – his wife Beverly, his brothers Karey and Larry, his sister Shannon, his children Barb (Gary), Doug (Penny), Michael (Sue), Kenny (Tracy) and step children Rick (Barb) and Chris (TammyLynn) and his grandchildren Trevor, Shannon, Josh, Rory, Chad, Brandon, Jordon, Brett, Blake, Christopher, Sarah, Luke, Stefanie, Anna and his great grandchildren Wyatt, Mason, Avery and Tenleigh. He also leaves many close family and friends. He will be greatly missed and always remembered for his warm smile, hearty laugh and generous spirit. Stan is at rest in the eternal embrace of his God, whose love is everlasting.
What is your only comfort in life and death?
That I am not my own, but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death, to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.
A Memorial Service will be held for Stan at the Parksville Fellowship
Baptist Church on September 26, 2015 beginning at 2:30 pm.
Please join the family for refreshments after the service.
Everyone is welcome.
In lieu of flowers, the family will be grateful for donations in Stan’s memory to Gideons International Canada or charity of your choice.
