Edward "Ed" Todd Bell

September 9, 1969 - February 18, 2021

Edward “Ed” Todd Bell, 51, of Owensboro passed away Thursday, February 18, 2021. He was born on September 9, 1969 in Louisville, KY to Marilyn Hamilton Bitely and the late Edward W. Bell. Ed could be described as the life of the party, an all-around jokester and the worlds best hug giver. His true enjoyment came from spending time with his family. Ed never met a stranger and loved making people laugh any chance he had. Ed loved being outdoors especially in Alaska. His hobbies included woodworking and tinkering with anything he could get his hands on. Ed worked for the IBEW local 1547 in Anchorage, Alaska as a journeyman wireman.

Ed is survived by his wife Sarah Jackson Bell; his mother Marilyn Hamilton Bitely; his children Kayla Bell, Adam (Mikayla) Fleming, Savanna (Jared) Prall, Caleb Jackson Bell, Nicholas Bell and Mariska Bell; 8 grandchildren; his sisters Eyde Clark, Amy Bitely, and Stephanie Jackson; along with numerous nieces and nephews and his best friend Dennis Knebel of Anchorage, Alaska.
