Our hearts are absolutely breaking as we say goodbye to our husband, son, brother, uncle, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend, Kade Bell.

  Dexter Kade Bell was born to Brian and Anelisa Bell on December 26, 1989 in Ogden, Utah.  He was greeted at home by his big brother, Rory, who he loved and adored as his hero.

He attended schools in the Rich School District graduating from LDS Seminary and Rich High School in May 2008.  He was a member of the high school football, basketball and track teams.  He loved anything to do with sports and was a diehard Jazz fan.  He watched his Utah Jazz whether they had a winning season or a losing season.

He was called to serve as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the New Zealand Wellington mission and gained a strong testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ while he served.  

After his mission he worked at several different jobs and then decided that he wanted to become an electrician.  He started his electrical career with GS Electric in Altamont and was always appreciative to Gary Sorensen for giving him his start.  He was most recently employed by ITC Electrical Technologies who contracted out to Jonah Energy Automation.  He loved working with his buddies on the Jonah team.  We owe an immeasurable debt of gratitude to ITC for keeping him employed even though he hasn’t been able to work since the end of November.

While living in the Uintah Basin, Kade met the love of his life Ali Marie Mecham and they were joined in marriage on September 24, 2016.  Kade loved the extra family he gained by marrying Ali.  He never thought of them as in-laws but rather just an extra set of parents, two more brothers and finally some sisters.  

Kade loved the outdoors and was happiest when he could be walking the hills of his beloved Mecham Canyon.  How fitting he thought it was that the love of his life and the place he loved to be the most had a name in common.   He loved to hunt, fish and especially kill coyotes.  He loved looking for sheds in the spring and calling in elk in the fall.  

Kade was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer in the end of November.  He faced it like he faced every other challenge in his life with a good attitude and courage to overcome it and come out a winner.   However, this wasn’t our Heavenly Father’s plan.  He had a greater plan for Kade and called him to return to Him.   We are appreciative to the Rich County Ambulance (Kerry, Dale and Kim) and to the staff of the Evanston Regional Hospital for the valiant effort they made to keep him stable enough to endure the helicopter ride to the Huntsman Hospital in Salt Lake.  
At the Huntsman, Kade was joined by a myriad of family members who were able to surround him and express their love to him as he passed from this life to the next on March 4, 2019.  

Kade is survived by his wife, Ali; his parents, Brian and Anelisa; Brad and Janet; his brothers Rory (Abby), Rylee (Aleesha), and sister Nikki (Gabe); nephews and nieces Harper, Rowdy, Hagen, Scout and Bronx; grandfathers Jack Bell and Erwin Rust, grandmother Gwen Brown and grandparents Lee and Norma Mecham as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.  He was preceded in death by his grandfather Lawrence Brown, grandmothers JoAnn Bell and  Dorthy Rust and nephew Boston Behling.  

Funeral services will be held on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 11 a.m. at the Woodruff Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.   There will be a viewing at the church on Sunday night from 6-8 p.m. and on Monday from 9:30 to 10:45 prior to services.  Interment will be in the Woodruff Utah Cemetery.

My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends for the loss of your dear loved one. Although the death of a loved one brings pain and sorrow. It's comforting to know that the true God Jehovah (Psalm 83 :18) tell us at Psalms 34:18 "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit "! The assurance of God's Words at Acts 24 :15 and Revelation 21 : 3,4   gives us Jesus  promises " There is going to be a resurrection". I hope you find his words comforting in your times of difficulty.

I knew Kade on his mission in Christchurch New Zealand. We became close friends while we were serving together as he was companions with our district leader at the time. He shared his Winnetka friendship with all of us who served around him. We loved to listed to his stories. Very sad to hear of his passing. Blessings to all of those who have survived him. May the lord comfort you in this time of loss and mourning.

So sorry for your loss. I know what its like to lose a son so my heart goes out to you. It was at John Hansens wedding that we visited with Kade and had such a good talk. He is Tylers friend as they played football together and graduated together and I watched them play every game at Rich High. Our prayers are for a blessing of comfort to all of you.
