Lewis Turner Bell entered into rest October 19, 2015 in Batavia, NY. He was predeceased by his mother and father, Mildred and Lewis M. Bell.

Born and raised in Lockport, Lew entered the Army, 1st Infantry Division in 1965.  He earned the Vietnam Service Medal, Good Conduct Medal, and the Marksman (RifleM-14) Medal.  Lew served as a Chaplain during the Vietnam conflict. After his return, he was employed and retired from HSBC (previously Marine Midland) where he had many friends and associates that enjoyed Lew’s kind, warm ways.

Lew was very active in Politics and in the Community.  He volunteered to serve in the Rotary Club, Kiwanis, Salvation Army Board of Directors, Cold Springs Cemetery Association and the Mason Lodge.   Lew would volunteer to help anyone at any time, unconditionally.  Lew also enjoyed playing the trombone in many different bands including the Barker Community Band, The Federation of Musicians, and many small bands that played around the community.  He was always pleased to play on the Holidays and at the area nursing homes, when he felt it brought the most joy to his audience.

Lew was a lifelong Episcopalian, serving as a lay reader and Eucharistic Minister.  He was a quiet soul with a great sense of humor who touched many lives with his kindness.  He will be fondly remembered by cousins Karen Sherwood and Buddy Turner of Lockport and Dana Castle of Virginia, close friends, Cyd Bennett Cehulik, Dave & Bonnie Seaman, James Hoste, Ted Hadley, Joe Kibler, Mary Brennan Taylor, Robert Bush, Doug Bowden, Lou Cain, Father Don Seekins and Clyde Locke.

A Celebration of Lew’s life will be held on October 31, 2015 at 10 am at the Christ Episcopal Church, 7145 Fieldcrest Dr, Lockport, NY.  Burial was Oct. 21st in Cold Springs Cemetery.
At Lew’s request, any random act of kindness to another in his memory would be appreciated.
