On April 2, 2020, George Christopher Bell, a beloved father, son, brother and friend was called to Glory at the young age of 49. Christopher was born on April 20, 1970 in New York to Frank Lee Bell and Josephine (Watson) Bell. Born, raised and educated in the Bronx, Chris was determined to make a difference in his community. Always a protector, he worked most of his life as security in various locations in New York City. Christopher leaves to carry on his legacy his two beautiful daughters Alicia and Lovely and his only son, Davon.
Chris was an amazing father to his children. Every moment he could, he made them feel special and loved. Any moment he could have with his family he took and made the best of it. Birthdays were the most special for him. Always finding a way to celebrate with his children and creating special moments for life. Chris was the kind of father that “kept it real” and honest at all times and always with a loving, kind and compassionate heart. Always there and always supportive; that’s who he was and that's why he will always be missed.
Chris or "Father Bell" a name which was bestowed upon him by his community, loved his family tremendously. He was known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, and his kind and compassionate spirit. Nothing pleased him more than planning family BBQ’s, reunions and other gatherings. He loved family holidays, especially Thanksgiving. These were the times he shined; he laughed, danced and even sang when the family was together. He loved showing off his beautiful children who were the light in his eyes. Chris had a capacity for love that was larger than life. He had special relationships with so many people, notably, his nephews. How can one person make so many people feel special; like they were his favorite? Well, Chris was able to do that. Why did so many people in the community come to him for advice and comfort? Because they knew he cared. He was our protector and peacemaker and now he is our Guardian Angel. He was loved by so many: He will be missed by so many more.
Christopher was preceded in death by his father, Frank Lee Bell. He is survived by his mother, Josephine Bell, his children, Alicia, Davon and Lovely, his first love, Leslie George, his brothers, Bernard, Arnold, Patrick, Robert, Daniel and Mitchel, his sisters, Jonita, Patricia, Jacqueline and Shontai, a host of in-laws, nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
