Ron was a friend and brother since 1974. Quiet strong man of character with a mischievous wry sense of humor. Blessed with a loving life partner in Lisa, Ron was always a friend you could count on to be steady and there if you needed a hand. We will miss you Ron and our thoughts are with Lisa and your kin!!

To know Ron as a friend and as a fellow brother in the USAF and go to meet his family in Pennsylvania and him go to meet mine in Oklahoma was just one of the many times and things we shared in life. I'm sure going to miss you my friend of 44 years. It was a great pleasure knowing and sharing our years together. Rest In Peace Heaven gained one fine man and Angel on February 13th 2017.

Ron Bell was a man of quiet intelligence with an easy-going temperament. He had a funny, mischievous sense of humor with a can do attitude - always ready for a new adventure. Most of all, he was a great friend. I've known Ron since 1972. In all those years he was always the same honest, trustworthy, supportive, dependable friend... I'll miss him dearly. My sincere condolences to his loving wife and her father 'Wild' Bill, and to Ron's family in Pennsylvania. With upmost respect and heavy heart.....

To the Ron Bell family,
My heart goes out to all of you. Met Ron while visiting my brother, Rick Blackwell. The two of them together were nothing but laughs. Rick will be lost without his buddy. Prayers for your family and my brother. We'd had Ron on our prayer list at Parksville Baptist Church.
Sending my love
