William Allan Bell was born on February 23, 1956 in Wichita, KS to Thomas William Bell and Mary Belle (Royal) Bell.   Bill grew up in Wichita, KS and attended West High School.  At the age of 17 he joined the US Army. Following his military service he married Joyce (Moss).  Together they had 3 children, Mary LeeAnn (Eric) Camerrer, Joshua Allen Bell and Daniel Thomas (Sarah) Bell.   On October 28, 1994, he married Vickie (Ast, Flickinger) Bell in Wichita, KS becoming the step-dad to Kristie (Ronald) MacMeeken, Kimberly (Rock) Hadley, Kyle Flickinger, Kevin (Sheila-Tasker) Flickinger.  
Bill is preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Mary Belle,  Siblings, Sherry and Darryl Lavender and Donna Wright and niece Kimlin Lavender.
Bill is survived by his wife Vickie, 3 children, 4 step-children, his brother Brent (Gabriella) Bell, New London, PA, sister Brenda Eck, Wichita, KS.  Nieces and Nephews – Jason Lavender, Jerrod Wright, Aisha Wright, Eli Bell, Austin Bell, Trevor Bell, Kendra Eck.   Many other relatives and friends.

Bill will be missed by many.  He loved doing for others.  He would diagnose and fix cars for all who asked.  He loved to teach others how to fix things.   He was an avid car person.  He built a Mustang into a drag racer.  We spent many days and evenings at the track.  He had never owned a vehicle that he didn’t modify.  He was known by his trademark name of “Bite Me Racing”.   Bill was also very creative in finding solutions.  While working in Western Kansas he designed a farm implement attachment and received two US Patents. 
Bill spent his work career in manufacturing.   These positions fit him perfectly with his desire to improve processes, develop guidelines and training.
