Dear Mrs. Bell and family, I just learned of Dean Bell's passing. I will always remember him as DEAN Bell because he hired me as his student assistant. I was @ Oregon, a bachelor's Marketing student. Dean Bell and Mrs. A were the best. My first son was born March 18, 1982, while I worked beside Mrs. Ackerman. They gave me nice gifts. Mrs. A. & her husband came to visit me several times until I got back to school. That was a wonderful time in my life. We loved Eugene. It was a very interesting place and time. So many came there to train for marathons. The energy there was amazing and Dean Bell was an integral part of it all. I earned my B.S. in Marketing during August, 1982. Dean Bell encouraged me to go to Law School and said, when I was ready, he would do a recommendation letter. I did talk with and write Dean Bell a few times. I got a Master's in Public Admin. in 1994 from NCCU in Durham, NC. I am now a doctoral Ed.D. student at Nova SE Univ. [2nd year]. I had planned to contact Dean Bell upon graduation this time. He will be greatly missed. As you all know, Dean Bell was a simply marvelous man! God speed! May his life comfort us all! Much love to you, CoCo Hutchison & family
