David S. Bell Jr. Obituary
DAVID S. BELL JR., 91, died at his Rocklin, CA, home on June 30, 2015. Narrowly escaping many reckless escapades, Dave grew from recalcitrant youth to become Riverside Poly senior class president, Class of '41. He joined Patton's Army and though wounded, a tin of K-rations in his shirt pocket saved his life by deflecting a German sniper's bullet. Dave returned home with a Purple Heart and went on to graduate from USC. Charmed by a PE reporter, Sheila Gordon, they married 58 years ago and had two children, Erin Webb and David Bell, and two grandchildren. He worked in banking, mortgage financing, and with the federal housing administration. A wonderful husband, father, uncle, friend and compadre, Dave graced us with wit and wisdom, leaving us with loads of lessons, love and laughter. If that's not what life's truly about, it sure should be. Interment will be at Riverside National Cemetery on August 7, 2015.
