In 1948 the family moved to Ephrata, where Mr. Bell owned and operated a service station. In 1949 they moved to Quincy, and Mr. Bell became employed by the Grant County Department of Highways until his retirement in 1964. In 1976 he and his wife returned to Manson.

Mr. Bell was a member of the American Legion.
