In his retirement he joined The Rise Church, formerly known as Faith Temple Christian Center. DC loved the Lord. In his daily life he would be found studying the Word and listening to spiritual music. He was an avid bowler. During football season, you could find him rooting for his favorite team, the New Orleans Saints, and the Southern University Jaguars. He would faithfully attend his Jaguars games and when the opportunity presented itself he would be more than willing to attend a Saints game.

DC is survived by his children (spouses); Linda Whip (Joe Whip), Daniel Bell (Tracy Bell), Ronald Bell, Deborah Bell Turner (Dennis Turner, deceased), Michael Bell (Stephanie Bell), Erica Courtney, his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, and nephews and cousins.
