Robert Bell, 89, of Exeter, went home to be with the Lord peacefully on Friday.
Born in Moosic, he was the husband of Nellie Warrell Bell and the son of the late Robert and Laura Drasher Bell. Bob was very proud that his 3 daughters followed in their mother’s footsteps becoming RNs.
He was preceded in death by his first wife Mary Frances O’Malley Bell, second wife Barbara Danielowicz Bell, and sister Beverly Bell Hiller.

Bob worked as a specialized mechanic repairing typewriters and other business machines including early computers. He was especially proud to be employed by Royal Typewriters and was involved in the education of other mechanics in that field. He was a member of the Independent Bible Church of Duryea.
There will be a viewing at the Ruane & Mudlock Funeral Home, Inc., 18 Kennedy St., Pittston from 3-5pm on Sunday.
