In loving memory of Graham Bell MBE

When writing an article, I always tend to start by looking around me for some inspiration. I brain dump all of my thoughts about the subject onto a piece of paper or the computer.

However, this is very different.

The inspiration was always right there in front of me, you, Mr Graham Bell MBE, you are the epitome of the type of man born from your generation.

A warmhearted and selfless person until the last moments of your life.

You lived a long (and deservedly so) gracious life, and I guess in many ways you reminded me of my hero, my grandfather Private James Smith who also served in World War 2 and passed aged 94.

Thank you for your service to your country. Thank you for your charitable work, and thank you for the inspiration you have brought into the lives of many people.

My thoughts are with all Graham’s family and friends at this time.

Graham, who had six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, died on Wednesday, June 24 after a short illness.

Graham’s family have asked for any donations in his memory to be made to St Luke’s Hospice Sheffield.
