1958 ~ 2019
Terry Dale Bell passed away peacefully at his home on July 5, 2019. He was born on March 1, 1958 to Leslie A. Bell and Mona S. Bell in Preston, ID, the youngest of 2 boys.
As a child, Terry and his family moved from Grace, ID to North Salt Lake City, UT where he attended Viewmont High School. Terry graduated in 1976 and then went on to work for Utah Power & Light.
He married Julie Tullis in 1978 and they had 5 children together, three girls and two boys, before later divorcing.
Terry was very artistic. He enjoyed anything that allowed him to express himself. These expressions took place in many forms such as sketching and through the last several years, photography. He always had a great love for animals which was evident through his care and love for his dogs. He was rarely seen without at least one dog by his side throughout his lifetime. Terry also had a curious mind and was always looking for ways to expand his knowledge. He took classes at both Dixie State College and Utah Valley Community College in social work, criminal justice, art, and photography.
He is preceded in death by his parents Leslie A. and Mona S. Smith.
Survivors include his 5 children, Nicole Deabenderfer; TJ Bell; Trevor (Malinda) Bell; Brookelle Langi; and Kerissa (Tyler) Whiting; 16 grandchildren; and his brother Leslie A. Bell Jr.
Graveside services will be held on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 2 pm at Memorial Lakeview Cemetery located at 1640 Lakeview Drive in Bountiful, UT. Condolences at www.MemorialUtah.com.
