Thomas E. Bell, 95, of Clarksburg went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, August 25, 2020. He was born on December 7, 1924 in Connersville, Indiana, a son of Walter Everett and Alice Anita Bell. He joined the US Navy upon his high school graduation and served for 10 years as a Signalman. He was a veteran of both WWII and the Korean War. Upon discharge from the Navy, he was a partner in Ash & Bell Dairy in the Jones Run Community. Feeling called by God to enter the ministry, he attended and graduated from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC and subsequently pastored Calvary Independent Church of Lumberport until ill health forced his retirement. He also taught English at Lumberport High School for many years. His students will always remember having to learn “the poems” and hearing the Model A Story.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, Ruth Bell Mullen, two brothers, Wayne and Kenneth Bell, sister and brother-in-law, Gene and Ugene Rogers, sister-in-law, Mary Waugh, and his first wife, Wilma Ash Bell.
Thomas is survived by his second wife, OmaJean Robinson Bell and three children, Coleen Roberts (Mike) of Concord, NC; Gordon (Beth) of Auburn, of ME; and Tom (Beverely) of Lumberport. He is also survived by seven grandchildren; Bethany Roberts Mozingo (Todd), Nathan Roberts (Candace), Vivian Bell Tass (Kraig), Austin Bell (Stacy), Joshua Bell (Kassie), Ryan Bell (Elizabeth), Zachary Bell (Tessa); two bonus grandchildren, Jeff Haggerty and Annalise Robichaud, twelve great-grandchildren, four bonus great-grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Velma Shock; a brother-in-law, Robert Grogg, and several nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Laura Davis and the other caregivers from Village Caregivers, the team from Amedisys Hospice, the 911 responders and the staff of the VA Hospital in Clarksburg for their care and concern.
The family will receive friends at Harmer Funeral Home in Shinnston on Friday, August 28, 2020 at 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM. We ask that you please observe mask and distancing guidelines currently in effect. The funeral service and burial will be private.

What a treasure of a person Pastor Bell was! He loved me like a granddaughter and touched the lives of everyone he met. He followed Jesus with his whole heart and pointed others to Christ. I will miss him!

Mr. Bell was a great teacher in school and behind the pulpit. I would listen to his message on the radio while getting ready for school, then discuss it with him at school.What a huge impact he had on me. I'll try to memorize "The Village Blacksmith" by the time we meet again. RIP

Coleen roberts Posted at 02:15pm

Thank you for your kind words. He did impact many lives! Coleen
