James Donald Bell of Saint Charles, MO, passed away at the age of 86 on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

He is survived by his sons, Alan (Elizabeth) Bell and James (Carmen) Bell; his granddaughter, Shelley Bell; and his siblings, Connie (Ohren) Simburger, Joseph (Annette) Bell, Thomas (Jean) Bell, and Jimmy (Elif) Bell.

James was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Roselyn Bell; and his parents, James and Irma Bell.

James proudly served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He was a retired Branch Manager for McDonnel Douglas and was a member of the St. Charles Masonic Lodge #130. He had an adventurer’s soul and loved to golf, canoe, but mostly he loved to travel all over the country in his motor home – there were only two states that he never visited. James was dearly loved and will be missed by all who knew him.

Contributions in James' name can be made to the Alzheimer's Association.
