OAKLEY - Clifford B. Bell, age 83, passed away peacefully at his home on July 13th, 2020 in Oakley, Idaho. He was born on August 15th, 1936 in Oakley, Idaho where he grew up attending school, participating in track and being a member of the cheerleading squad. After graduation he was drafted into the Army where he served his country during the Korean War. Once returning from service he moved to Utah where he met his wife, Deanne Tovey of 61 years.

They had four children; Craig Bell (Melodie) South Jordan, Utah, Robert Bell (Deborah), Lisa McKnight (Louie), and Mark Bell (Diane) of Oakley, Idaho. During his life he had several jobs as a mechanic. Working at John Deere (Elliot’s in Burley) was one of his most enjoyable. He then started and owned his own mechanic business, B&B Repair in Oakley, which he worked at up until his retirement. He is survived by his four children, ten grandchildren, and fourteen great grandchildren. We was preceded in death by his wife Deanne Bell. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, July 18, 2020, at the Oakley Stake Center with Bishop Wayne Lind officiating.

I would like to send my deepest condolences to the bell family during this time. Cliff was a great man and a wonderful neighbor that I have respected all my life. I told him that I would drop by and see him in early spring or fall but I guess that he just couldn't be Away from his sweet wife (Deanne) after her passing. They are a beautiful couple and I am sure that they are so happy to be in each other's arms again. Bless your hearts!
My wife and I would like to send our blessings to Craig, Robert, Lisa, Mark and to their sweet families. You are truly blessed to have Cliff and Deanne in your life. You have the best parents and Grandparents in the world. The world will never be the same without them.

With the deepest respect,
Dean and Sandra
