In memory of
Edwin Carlson "Ed" Bell
EDWIN “ED” CARLSON BELL December 28, 1945 ˜ August 28, 2019 Edwin “Ed” Carlson Bell, 73, passed away peacefully on August 28, 2019 in Vancouver, Washington after a month-long battle with illness. He lived in Vancouver for 46 years. He was born and raised in Astoria, Oregon with his brother, Thom McKean Bell, and he graduated from high school there. He was the son of Edwin Carlson and Louise “Pinky” Reid Carlson Bell. His adoptive father was Burnby Bell. He graduated from the University of Oregon and was a life-long Ducks fan. He also met his wife, Julie Schlesser Bell, at the University of Oregon, and they were married for 49 wonderful (and eventful) years and had two children, Scott and Kristin Bell. Ed was an avid outdoorsman and sports enthusiast his entire life. He loved fishing with good friends and family, and in his earlier years he coached baseball at Alcoa Little League. He enjoyed golf, rooting for his favorite golfers, and giving Julie golfing tips. He also enjoyed going on road-trips with friends and family, and especially loved to hit Arizona and Vegas every year. He worked hard his entire life and retired from The Columbian Newspaper’s distribution center a number of years ago. Ed loved and protected his family and friends with his whole heart, and will be sorely missed by all of them. Ed was passionate yet reserved with a dry sense of humor that he passed down to his kids. He is survived by his wife, Julie Schlesser Bell; his two children, Edwin Scott Bell and Kristin Bell; and his brother, Thom McKean Bell. A Celebration of Life will be held Wednesday, September 11, 2019 at 12:30p.m. at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 805 SE Ellsworth Road, Vancouver, WA 98664. 360-892-7770. Donations can be sent to the Church of the Good Shepherd in lieu of flowers. Please sign his guest book @ www.columbian.com/obits
