Brian M. Bell

Brian M. Bell, 59, sadly passed away on July 14, 2022 from complications of cardiac arrest. He was born in 1962 to John "Jack" and Helen (Shinoski) Bell. The family of eight moved from Philadelphia to Wyncote, Pa when he was seven. His childhood was filled with the loving craziness of a large family and summers in the Poconos. Upon graduating Cheltenham High School, B (as he was known) worked with his dad and siblings at the family owned business, Bell Neon Sign Company, where he became an electrician. He enjoyed a career as an electrician and shared his skills with his family or friends during DIY projects. Brian was best known for his love of sharing life’s simple pleasures with his friends and family: being outside, swimming in the water hole, fishing with his most-loved dog Bella, iced tea, campfires and especially riding his quad. He was the “Trail Leader” and was always ready for an adventure.

Brian was a devoted father to Dana, Jackalyn, Brett and Bella (his dog); a father figure to Jessica, Christopher and Taylor; and a proud Dziadek to Jake. Brian is predeceased by his brother Joseph and survived by his siblings: Virginia, Deborah, John, Nancy and Daniel.  Brian will always be remembered for his belly laughs, generosity and love of family. “Cause in the end, it’s family that counts.” Thank you Brian for sharing your life!

On Saturday August 27, 2022, a Memorial Mass will be held at St. David Roman Catholic Church, 316 Easton Rd., Willow Grove, PA 19001. Visitation will be held from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM. Mass is at 10:30 AM. Immediately following the memorial service, friends and family are invited to attend a Celebration of Brian’s Life Potluck.

Brian was a friend and a really nice kid who I grew up with in my younger years in Wyncote. We didn't see a lot of each other after our years at Wyncote Elementary, but I remember him as kids and can see and hear him as he was then. Very saddened to learn of his passing. It sounds like he had a very full life with lots of love.
