Addison Bell

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Addison Bell, who was a lifetime member of Warriors and Waribrds.

Addison passed away Monday, March 23, 2015, at the age of 81, of ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig Disease.

Born April 5, 1933, in Lynchburg, VA, his family moved to Harrisonburg, VA where his father, Aubrey Bell, was a Fire Marshall. Following graduation from Harrisonburg High School, Addison attended the University of Virginia Engineering College and later graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

Addison served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War on the USS Coral Sea Aircraft and also at Kingsville Naval Air Station. He was a private pilot for almost fifty years and was very proud of his two grandsons, Andrew and Christian, who both became pilots at the age of sixteen.
