James Courtney “Jamie” Bell, Jr. age 61, went home to Jesus, Tuesday, October 17, 2023.
Jamie was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and friend. He was hard working and had been employed at Virginia House, Walmart, and C & A Fabricators. When he wasn’t working, Jamie enjoyed tinkering with his many tools, and having a McDonald’s Mocha Frappe – he had to have one every time he came to town. He loved cars, especially a Ford Fairlane or a Rat Rod, and he was a daredevil when it came to motorcycles. He was a member of Cedar Bluff Baptist Church, his faith kept him strong during his battle with MS (Multiple Sclerosis.) Jamie’s unique personality and kind, gentle ways will be missed.
He was preceded in death by his father, James C. Bell, Sr.; grandmothers, Mattie Bell and Katherine Thomas; father-in-law, Donald Lowman; and his faithful cat, Jayla.
Jamie is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Tammy Lowman Bell of Atkins, Va.; daughter, Kayla McCracken (Cody) of Marion, Va.; mother, Annie Thomas Bell of Atkins, Va.; sister, Cynthia Debusk (Gerald) of Chilhowie, Va.; several nieces and nephews; and his beloved cats, Alex, Electra, Pumpkin and Roxie.
