Thomas “Tom” Charles Bell, of Milford, and formerly of the Mt. Pleasant area, passed away peacefully on December 19th, 2020. He was 78 years old.

Tom was born in Detroit, Michigan, to parents William M. and Frances B. (nee. Dennis) Bell. He was one of six sons and grew up in Mt. Pleasant. After graduating from high school, Tom joined the army and served during the Vietnam War. He earned the Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal while he was in the army.

He was also an avid hiker. He was known to hike many of the trails throughout Michigan and completed the Shore to Shore trail with two of his nephews, Larry and Scott. One of his biggest hiking accomplishments was when he hiked the entire Appalachian National Scenic Trail with his nephew, John, who was 17 years old at the time. He was a kind and generous person that was always willing to help with any tasks around the house. Tom worked for many years on golf courses as part of the maintenance crew and retired in 2019.
