Carmel/Hermon - Robert Anthony Bell, 30 died unexpectedly October 10, 2019. Robert was born July 6, 1989, in Skowhegan, ME. He was educated in Hermon schools. At the time of his death, and for several years, he worked for Hannel Bros roofing and sheet metal of Bangor. Robbie had a special love for the outdoors and he always had a way of lighting up a room with laughter. He lived each day as if it were his last - "Don't count the days, make the days count" was something he often would say. Robbie's son Colton is the apple of his eye and the bond they share will always be unbreakable. "A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way."
In addition to his mother, Darlene Bell, he was predeceased by his brother, Patrick, maternal grandparents, Marjorie Burpee and Curly Braley, and best friend, Logan Preston. Surviving, in addition to his high school sweetheart and companion of 14 years, Jessica Green, are his son, Colton Bell and Godson, Alexander Oldershaw; his father, Jimmy Bell and paternal grandparents Mike and Sandy Bell of Hermon; brothers, Matthew Parker and Mike Bell; special friends/family, Charlene and Jim Green, Roy Oldershaw, and best friend for life, Amanda Jean Frazier, and several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews whom Robbie adored.
