Obituary

With very heavy hearts, we regret to announce the passing from this life of Deacon Bobby Jearous Bell, 48, a resident of Monroe, GA, who passed away on Monday, November 22, 2021, at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center in Athens, GA.

Deacon Bobby Jearous Bell
Sunrise: May 9, 1973  Sunset: November 22, 2021

Early Monday morning, November 22, 2021, Bobby Jearous Bell woke up in eternity. “Absent from the body ꟷ yet present with the Lord.”  Though he left us, he reunited with his mother, Sarah Joyce (Joiner) Bell; his beloved grandparents: Harmon and Olivia (Goode) Bell, and Curtis and Sarah (Clark) Joiner; uncles: James Bell, Woodie Bell, Ronald O’Neal Joiner, and Anthony J. Joiner; and aunt Dorothy Bell Stevens Dillard ꟷ all natives of Roanoke, AL ꟷ where the foundation for the Bell family was laid and cemented.

Born May 9, 1973, in Atlanta, GA, Bobby Jearous Bell is the son of Pastor Bobby L. Bell and the late Sarah Joyce (Joiner) Bell.  He completely enjoyed living his life.   

Bobby graduated from Ronald E. McNair Senior High School in Atlanta, GA.  Eventually he became a commercial driver and fell in love with this job.  As he traveled to various destinations, he carried his children and his siblings along with him in the form of small photo albums that he kept in his work bag.

An ordained Deacon, Bobby found his happy place with Decatur’s Let There Be Light Ministry, a nondenominational church pastored by his father.  Here, he was completely free to exercise his deep love for the Lord and this ministry.  A true people-person, he’d give you the last of anything; he saw everybody through the same lens ꟷ and with a heart of gold, full of love. But not only did Bobby love people.  People LOVED BOBBY!  He was like a MAGNET!  He had all the qualities every good dad possesses: loved his children; protected his children; cared for them; shared his wisdom and life experiences with them ꟷ and the list goes on.  In their eyes, he was strong and mighty.  Their hero. 

A enthusiastic soul food connoisseur, it’s no wonder he was such a skillful grill master! Loved cooking ꟷ all the favorites: the chicken, the barbeque ribs, you name it ꟷ he could grill it.

After years of incident-free navigating the highways and byways of our nation, our hearts are shattered into a million pieces by his life ending so abruptly ꟷ not because of his own actions but because of the actions of another. 

Yes, Bobby’s unrelenting spirit will live on through his oldest son, Jearous Na’Jon Simes of Chicago; three beautiful daughters: Shellita K. Bobbie Brown-Wynter of Lilburn, Saniya Bobbi Denise Bell, and Jocelyn Desinay Bell, both of Stone Mountain, and his youngest boys: Elijah Amari Bell and Geremiah Jabary Bell also of Stone Mountain; his father, Bobby L. Bell and step-mom Vicki Bell; sister Gwendolyn Bell (Calvin) of Conyers, GA; brother, Nicholas Bell (Monika) of Conyers, GA; sister Tangi Woods (Jamie) of Clayton County, GA; uncles: Reverend Claude Bell (Ida) and Curtis Lee Joiner (Sharon) of Roanoke, AL, James Rachel Joiner (Bonnie), and Jerry Dean Bell (Linda) of Conyers, GA; aunts: Nancy Snipes of Durham, NC, Alice Thornton (Charlie) of Marietta, and Linda Faye Bell and Nanette Phillips (Kenny) both of Roanoke, AL; great aunts: Frances Whatley of Decatur, GA and Jean Owensby of Dayton, OH; and finally, a great host of loving cousins, friends and acquaintances who truly adored and admired him, and will now miss him deeply.
