Mr. Bell was my teacher for grade 5/6 in 1970 at Overland Drive PS. He had a great impact on me. He was my all time favourite teacher - fun, kind and patient. I will always think of him fondly.

He was my favorite at Overland. When I had appendicitis he came to visit me at NYGH dressed in his scout leader uniform and brought me comic books. Very kind and thoughtful, I was in a different troop by the way. Very sad about his passing.
