Bob O. Bell, of Lake Placid, Florida and Gardner, North Dakota, went to be with our Lord late Saturday evening, March 14, 2020. He was in the companionship of his loving family.

Bob was born in Hutchinson, Minnesota on Sept. 25, 1937. He was the son of Helen Block Bell and Levi Bell. Bob worked the family grain farm from 1955 to the present.
