David Edward Bell of Miramichi (Ferry Road), NB, husband of Cheryl (Preston) Bell passed away at the Miramichi Regional Hospital on Saturday, November 20, 2021 at the age of 59.

David was the epitome of a family man. He loved his wife Cheryl deeply, and together they loved to go for walks in Millbank, to the Newcastle Farmer’s Market for sausage and schnitzel, and to the Kingsway for breakfast on Sunday mornings. His daughters were the apples of his eye, and any chance he got to relive his childhood by playing with his many nieces and nephews and their children he truly came alive.

David was a hard worker who spent many years working in the woods, on the winder at the Repap Paper Mill, as a welder, and retired in 2018 from Suncor, where he worked as a power engineer. Though circumstances asked him to change career paths a number of times, he always relished the opportunity to learn and excel at a new skill. Those who knew him knew they could ask him to turn his hand at just about anything, and he loved to be called upon to help anyone who asked, especially friends and family.

With his lifelong friends, he put his skills to use in building his camp on the Renous River, where he got to enjoy his favourite hobbies of fly fishing, hunting, and four-wheeling. The last couple of years he was healthy enough to take many trips on his bike, exploring all of the woods roads of his youth.

David is survived by the love of his life, Cheryl, his mother, Dawn, his daughters Rachael and Lindsay, his sister Keri (Claude), his brother Kevin, as well as many sisters- and brothers-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. He is predeceased by his father Maurie and his infant brother Robert.
