MURRELLS INLET—Fredrick J Bell, 74, passed away Jan.17.
He was born March 8, 1945 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was a resident of Murrells Inlet where he retired with his longtime partner Georgette Shorraw.
Fred is survived by his only child, daughter Catherine DePasquale; her husband Joseph DePasquale; grandsons Joseph and Anthony DePasquale of Wrightsville, Pennsylvania; loving sister Letitia Vallo and husband David Vallo of Sun City Center, Florida, and by many nieces and nephews.
Ask anyone and they will say that Fred was just a kind soul — a wonderful, loving man who would do anything for you.
He sadly lost his partner of more than 30 years, Georgette, just a few months before his passing. Her loss deeply impacted him.
Fred was a veteran who served his country, in the army during the Vietnam War. He was a former U.S. Steel employee.
Fred loved cheeseburgers, playing cards with his neighborhood friends and his weekly Thursday night chats with his sister, Tish. He will be deeply missed.
A special thank you to Paula and Craig Daisey, loving neighbors, who did so much for him and our family during a difficult time. The family gives them their greatest gratitude.
A viewing will be held on Saturday, Jan. 25, from 11a.m.-1p.m. at Goldfinch Funeral Home on Frontage Road Murrells Inlet.
