Phillip Jason Bell, 35

Jason Bell, 35, passed away unexpectedly March 13, 2013, in his home in Hendersonville.

Jason was born Sept. 2, 1977, in Buncombe County. He is survived by his resilient daughter Katie Delude, his loving parents Bruce and Melba Bell, his grandmother Virginia Bell, his brother Shannon Bell and wife Kristal Bell, his sister Cricket King and husband Billy King, and his brother Eric Pace and wife Kelly Pace.

Jason was graduated from Appalachian State University with a bachelor of computer science in 1999. He has worked at Agilysys since that time developing modern software. Jason's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His warm heart and caring soul was always out to help others, he always put others first in lieu of himself. A better friend could and did not exist.

He was always surrounded by loved ones, and always enjoyed spending quality time with them.

His interests included family, friends, music, and artwork.

Visitation for friends and family will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Sunday, March 17, 2013, at Thos. Shepherd & Son Funeral Directors.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Monday, March 18, 2013, at Thos. Shepherd & Son's Church Street Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Hendersonville Bear Cats Band, in which Katie is a dedicated member.
