  3. RIP Michael….your warm and gentle spirit will always be remembered …may your soul rest peacefully. Our prayers 🙏 are with the family.

  4. R.I.P Michael Bell, This is Lil Nut Marcus Ivory aka WELLBE. I love you and thank you for being apart of my life and showing compassion and having good time. You also taught me and Amari about the real world. I remember mostly every memory with you. Thank You.

  5. Michael we worked together for many year’s at NM, we shared many laughs. I’m glad that we got to reconnect year’s later while you were visiting Milwaukee. You’ll be missed, may you rest in peace my friend.

  6. Amari, Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss… Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  7. Michael, I learned of your passing from a former coworker and mutual friend Nelson Guzmán. We met as I interned in the data center where we all worked. There you and Nelson were suppose to train me. Well that turned out pretty good for the most part. My sincere condolences and prayers to the family and friends you leave behind. Since you’ve earned your wings, save an angel wing training slot for me. May you rest in eternal peace sir. Blessings beyond the sunset.

  8. The last time I saw my buddy Michael was my retirement party in August of 2016. He was one of the few people that I stayed in contact with after moving to Orlando and he to Texas. I would always get calls from him and he would shout out ‘Gooze’, that was nickname he had for me. In writing this, I get chills thinking that these phone calls have ceased. I know he was a proud father of his kids because he would tell me about them and he was a happy, caring soul. Our love and prayers go out to Vanessa and the rest of the family during this difficult season of time. Michael your laugh and craziness will be missed. See you on the other side! God bless!

  9. My Pops will be dearly missed. I got so use to thr early morning text messages or phone calls. I had to catch myself the other day like let me text Pops. He has been by my side and myself, my wife and kids will deeply miss him. We end every call like this he would say “Love ya Tony” & my reply ” I love u to Pops”!!! Now you can rest with Grandma, Uncle Bunny, Uncle Earnest, Aunt Donna & Jaheim.

  10. Michael always had a smiling face and stories to share, once retired we lost contact, but always caught up. Reading about him family realized we all grew up together running up/down the alley with his brother‘Barney ‘ and sister DVonne, went to West Division, Worked with Michael at Northwestern Mutual, he will be missed, but I share the memories.
