Childhood hero to me, Richard was vibrant, loved life and never met a stranger. His hallmark smile, sense of humor and outrageous/contagious laughter will be missed. Love that man.

My Condolences to Nancy and the Bell family.
Mr. Bell was my math teacher as well as a teacher of life. He was truly passionate about teaching kids. He had so many stories to tell and along with that southern accent and his animation, I would have to say he was one of my favorites. He was also a pretty darn good baseball coach too. You were a positive influence on many. Loved Mr. Bell
