Albert "Albe" W. Bell


Albert “Albe” W. Bell, age 87, a lifelong resident of Fair Lawn passed away on Thursday, September 6, 2018 at home surrounded by his loving family.  He was a parishioner of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church in Ridgewood.  Family, food and laughter were his joys in life.  We fondly remember many Sunday dinners and holidays with Albe telling stories at the head of the table.

A skilled carpenter, he owned and operated Albert Bell Building in Fair Lawn for 60 years, before retiring in 2006.  He was known for perfection in his craft and built every home as if he were going to live in it. 

Beloved husband of Rita (Dowling) Bell.  Loving and devoted father of Susan Lizzi and husband Richard, Karen DeMartini and partner Andrew Haven and Michael Bell.  Cherished grandfather of Suzanne Lizzi and husband Travis Paine, Carolyn Noce and husband Patrick, Natalie DeMartini, Paul DeMartini and wife Lauren and Allison Bell.  Adored great grandfather of Joseph Lizzi and Evelyn DeMartini.  Dear brother of Helen Iler, Robert Bell and the late Mildred Alnemy, Elizabeth Labarck, Theodore Bell and George Bell.  He is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews.

The family will receive relatives and friends Monday, September 10, 2018, 4-8 pm at Vander Plaat-Caggiano Funeral Home, 13-31 Saddle River Road, Fair Lawn, NJ.  A Mass of Christian Burial is planned for Tuesday, September 11, 2018, 10 am at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel R.C. Church, 1 Passaic Street, Ridgewood, NJ.  Entombment will follow at Fair Lawn Memorial Cemetery in Fair Lawn.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Albert to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, P.O. Box 1000, Dept 142, Memphis, TN 38148 would be appreciated.
