My friend, my brother I miss and love you! Thank you so much for being the man you are. Sitting here at my desk looking at your empty chair I can hear that contagious laugh of yours! I will truly miss our talks, our laughs, our tears and that awesome smile of yours! I have no words to describe the emptiness I feel from your passing but I take comfort in knowing that you are at peace and you are at the place you’ve longed to be……Heaven got back an angel! I know you’re laughing right now when I say, “I hope you see me again one day!” From all of us at the Trocadero we want to say goodbye friend! God bless you! Have a blessed day Lonnie Bell Jr!
To Joann and the entire family we are so very sorry for your loss!
Lonnie Gene Bell Jr., 45, went home to be with the Lord on July 17, 2019. He was born on September 6, 1973 to Lonnie Bell Sr. and Dorothy Hardin in Evansville, Indiana.
Lonnie was a God fearing man. He loved the Lord with all his heart and enjoyed studying the Bible and listening to gospel music. He always had a Bible in his pocket and would stop what he was doing to pray for you if you needed it. Lonnie enjoyed the ocean, the beach, and nature. He worked for 14 years at Trocadero Plaza and treated everyone who walked through the door like family. Lonnie was an amazing son, husband, father, brother and friend, and will be dearly missed.
Lonnie is survived by his wife of 14 years, Joann Guest-Bell; his sons Lonnie Bell III and Michael Bell; his sister Sonja Bell; his mother Dorothy Hardin; his mother-in-law Luecrease Guest; his niece Brianna Eastwood; his sisters-in-law Kristine Guest and Antoinette Whitlock; his special niece and nephews he raised Keshaia Langley, Kavion Langley, Normiko Givens; and several loving nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and close friends.
Lonnie is preceded in death by his father Lonnie Bell Sr.; his grandparents Rev. James E. and Florida Gillis; and numerous other family members.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m. until time of service at 12 p.m. Thursday, July 25th at Sunset Funeral Home with burial to directly follow at Sunset Memorial Park.
