Dickie was born January 27, 1933, in Amarillo, TX to Martin Harvey and Elvie Kizzie Bell. He graduated from Amarillo High School in 1952.
He spent his working years in the tile and carpet laying business.
Dickie married Kay Noble in November 1985. They opened Kay’s Upholstery.
Upon retirement he honed his skills on woodworking, making many birdhouses, crosses and frames for family and friends. His favorite day of the week was Friday lunches with the guys, and sometimes gals, of the AHS Class of 1952. He continued the lunches up until recently when one of the “girls” would pick him up.

He is survived by his son, Joe Bell (Jan); daughters, Lynn Brollier, Melody Flanagan (Kelly), and Teresa Gibson, all of Amarillo, TX; grandsons, Kaleb Flanagan, Kane Flanagan, Kale Flanagan, Cleat Bell, Miles Bell, and Brennen Bell; twelve great-grandchildren; two step-sons, Danny Fortune, and David Fortune; and his full-time four-legged companion of many years, Jack.
