Harold Glenn Bell

March 23, 1943 ~ July 4, 2018 (age 75)

Harold Glenn Bell of Bentonville, AR, passed away on July 4th, 2018, at the age of 75 at Jamestown Rehabilitation Center in Rogers, AR, in the loving presence of his family.  He was born in Rogers on March 23rd, 1943, to Lewis Presley Bell and Oletha Pearl (nee John) Bell


He is remembered with love and survived by his wife of 52 years, Winnie Mae (nee Springer); sons, Michael of Piermont, NY and Matthew of Fayetteville, AR; siblings, John (Robbye) of Hammond, LA, Richard (Sharon) of Columbia, TN, Wayne (Judy) of Rogers, AR, Myra (Leonard) McGee of Purdy, MO, and Milton (Cathy) of Ramona, OK; and numerous nieces and nephews. 


He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Lloyd. 


He was baptized as a member of the Church of Christ


Harold attended school in Pea Ridge and Rogers, AR, graduated from Rogers High School in 1961, and attended the University of Arkansas.


Harold’s early jobs included jeweler’s apprentice and machinist, and he had several careers, including as an engineer at Telex, Inc. in Tulsa, OK, as a recruiter placing engineers and geologists in the oil and gas industry, and as an entrepreneur, co-founding businesses in pressure washer equipment sales and manufacturing, and telecommunication equipment sales.


Harold was an avid ice hockey fan and a committed proponent of youth soccer.  He coached youth soccer teams for many years and played a key role in reviving recreational soccer in Bentonville.  He also served multiple terms as the Youth Commissioner on the Arkansas State Soccer Board.


Harold was devoted to his family, loved to socialize with old friends and classmates, and was quick with a comeback.  He always had a plan in the works and wasn’t going to be told what to do.  He was a talented designer and engineer and a voracious reader and coffee drinker, and he knew how to raise an eyebrow effectively.


A visitation will be held from 2:00pm-4:00pm, Sunday, July 8, 2018 at Stockdale-Moody Funeral Chapel.


Graveside services will be held at 6:00pm, Monday, July 9, 2018 at New Home Church Cemetery on Peach Orchard Rd in Bentonville, AR, with Randy Featherston officiating.
