Lewis James “Jim” Bell

Our beloved Jim passed on May 13, 2020, surrounded by his family.  He was born January 8, 1944 in Toledo, Ohio to George E. Bell and June L. Bell. He moved with his family to California where he graduated from Sunnyvale High. Shortly after, he met his wife of 55 years, Susan, on the boardwalk at Santa Cruz Beach. He and Susan raised 4 boys together Matthew (Carianne), Jason, Daniel, and Andrew (Katie).  Jim was a 40-year resident of Boulder City where he owned and operated A&M Marine in Boulder City for 26 of those years.   

He loved boating on Lake Havasu and Lake Mead, snow skiing, and especially traveling. He enjoyed planning a trip, appreciating the sights in Europe and the US, then sharing his pictures after these excursions.  His photography also displayed his love and pride in his 8 grandchildren Olivea, Isaac, Madeline, Aiden, Kaylee, Ruby, Brayden, and Maxon.

He is also survived by his brother George (Kelly) Bell, and sister Joanna Bell.  His parents preceded him in death as well as his brother, Robert Bell.

A celebration of his life will be held at a later date when restrictions from covid-19 have been lifted. Family and friends can leave memories and condolences at
