Mack Lloyd Bell, Jr. left his earthly life Friday night, May 4, 2018 with peace in his heart. His family has been at his side, loving him, supporting him and caring for him during the past few weeks as cancer took his body, but not his spirit. Mack said cancer was a blessing to him as it led him from religion to a personal relationship with Jesus. Family and friends gave Mack back what he has always given to each of them as son, husband, daddy, Bepa, and friend. Mack’s presence in his earthly life brought love, joy, fun, laughter, and strength to family and friends. His passing leaves an empty place in our family circle as well as with all his friends.
Mack was a member of Mission Baptist Church. His family was his pride and joy in life and he took a major part in Lori and Michael’s lives from birth to becoming adults. Sports, school activities, and you name it he was involved. Being grandparents was an extra blessing to Mack and Bobbi. Mack will be missed beyond measure.
Mack was born July 9, 1957 in Burgaw, the son of Virginia Bell and the late Mack Lloyd Bell, Sr. In addition to his mother, Mack is survived by his wife of 38 years, Bobbi Bell; daughter, Lori Bell; son, Michael Bell and his wife, Jennifer and their daughter, Anna Bell; father-in-law, Robert Brown; sister-in-law, Cheryl Williams and her husband, Bruce; nieces and many friends, who thought the world of Mack.
Bobbi, Lori, Michael and Jennifer would like to share their grateful appreciation to Bruce and Cheryl Williams for care, comfort and love given Mack and to them during Mack’s last journey on this earth. They were there every step of the way.
Adhering to Mack’s wishes there will be no formal visitation or services held. What would please Mack most is to keep his family in your prayers.
Later, again at Mack’s request, there will be a private family scattering of his cremated remains at his favorite place to be in all the world, Surf City, Topsail Island.
Instead of flowers please consider a donation to Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation, 1414 Physicians Dr., Wilmington, NC 28401 or to the charity of your choice.
Shared memories and condolences may be sent to the family by selecting "Guest Book" above.

Winkie and family, thinking of you with a heavy heart and lifting you all up in prayer. I'll always remember Mack's nickname for me when I would go in Brown's, "Mrs. Cash". He always made me laugh. His was a bright and happy spirit. May you find peace in the coming days. Debbie Rivenbark Bruhn
