Shreveport - Billy Ray Bell, age 87, passed away Saturday, September 8, 2018. He was born May 26, 1931 in Smackover, AR to John J. and Aletha Mae Thomas Bell. He graduated from LSU and was a professional petroleum engineer. His garden was the envy of all. He was an avid fisherman. Every fishing trip was an adventure. He shared his love and knowledge of nature. Billy was a member of Ellerbe Road United Methodist Church, and the past several years was an active choir member. He learned piano and took piano lessons starting in his seventies. He served his country in the Navy during the Korean conflict.

He was preceded in death by his parents; loving wife of fifty-five years Evesta Ledell Brumfield Bell; brother Johnny Bell; sisters Marjorie Welch and Maudia Hammock.

He is survived by his daughter Rebecca Nelson; son Hamilton Drew Bell and wife Krista; grandchildren Matthew Nelson, Christopher Nelson and wife K.D., Ian Bell, and Chloe Bell; great granddaughters Sadie Ann Nelson and Maddox Clair Nelson; sister Jeanie Hutcheson; brothers Vernon Bell and wife Wanda, and Tommy Bell and wife Pattie Sue.
