Glenn A. Bell, age 86 a lifelong resident of Mineral Springs, Arkansas, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Monday, December 16, 2013 at his home. He was born December 18, 1926 in Mineral Springs to the late Rufus Marvin and Lizzie Lee Cowling Bell. Glenn was a faithful member of the Mineral Springs United Methodist Church. He had served on numerous Methodist boards. He was a cattle rancher and was a member of the Arkansas Cattleman’s Association where he had served and worked on the local and state levels. He was a member of the Mineral Springs Lions Club and was an annual member of the family squirrel camp. He was an avid sports fan and loved reading his daily newspapers keeping up with the local and state news. Most of all Glenn was a devoted and proud family man. His family was precious to him, they were his life. He lived for his children, and grandchildren along with the love of his life Dot. To Glenn his family was the most cherished prize he had, and he would let anybody know that asked. Glenn strongly believed in strong family values, loyalty, trust, faith, love and honesty to name a few. He taught these values to his children, because of his love for them.
A few years back Dorothy “Dot” Ruth Bell, the best friend and love of his life went to Heaven to reserve a special place for him, and Glenn was more than ready to see what she had done. Recently his daughter Rebecca Gay Bell had joined her mother and this made Glenn even more ready, even though he didn’t want to leave the rest of his family behind, knowing that someday day they too will be joining them for eternity.
He leaves behind his son, Greg and wife Diane Bell of Sheridan, Arkansas, as well as a daughter, Joy Bell Norris and husband Todd of Garland, Texas, and his youngest son, Kirk and wife Lesa Bell of Mineral Springs.
His brothers and sisters, Francis Bell of Mineral Springs, Gene “Red” Bell of Batesville, Clyde Bell of Mineral Springs and Joyce Bell Hesselbein of Bryant.
6 Grandchildren, Emily Bell Cox, Caroline Bell, Trevor Norris, Kimberly Bell, Megan Worthen and Chad Goss.

And a large host of other family and friends too numerous to name.
