On June 24, 1966, he married his surviving wife, Susie M. (Richardson) Bell with whom he was blessed to share over 54 years of marriage.

In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by a brother, Kenneth G. “Kenny” Bell and a brother-in-law, Clifford A. “Dewey” Kerlin.
Mr. Bell was a 1960 graduate of Juniata Joint High School and proudly served his country with the Army Corps. of Engineers of the U.S. Army.
In earlier life he was employed by the American Viscose Corp, Lewistown, after which he was employed by Standard Steel, Burnham and in 2003 he retired as a rigger from the Mechanicsburg Naval Depot with 23 years of service.
His memberships included being a lifelong member and serving as a Trustee of the Trinity United Methodist Church, Mifflin. He was also a member of the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge of Millerstown and Lewistown, and a member of the American Legion Post No. 298, Mifflintown.
With his love of sports, he had helped to organize the first midget football team in Mifflin, and he had coached little league baseball for nine years. He also served as the President of the Juniata Touchdown Club and was a long-time fixture on the sidelines of Dietrick Field as a member of the Chain Gang for the home football games.
Bobby loved all types of sports; he was especially an ardent fan of the Penn State Nittany Lady Lions Basketball and all of Juniata High School sports. He enjoyed photography, taking action photos of all kinds of sporting events and just general photography. Loving the outdoors, he became a bicycling enthusiast, riding with his son, grandson and nephew. Through bicycling, for fifteen years he had a mission of raising money for Multiple Sclerosis.

Bobby was a wonderful friend when we grew up together on the Mifflin Flat. I fondly remember swimming at the Riffles and playing on the Mifflin Midgets, and his perfect attendance at the EUB Church. God Bless his family. Chet Elder

Bobby was a classmate and I always remember how upbeat he always was and liked to have fun and laugh. Many good memories of our school years.
