Merwyn G. Bell, 74, of Casper, Wyoming passed away Saturday, July 23, 2022 at Central Wyoming Hospice in Casper. He was born on November 16, 1947 to Lawrence and Millie Bell in Seneca, Kansas. As the child of an Oil Field worker, the family moved often and eventually settled in Casper, Wyoming where he graduated from Natrona County High School. After High School, Merwyn enlisted in the U.S . Air Force and served during Vietnam. While stationed at the Air Force base in Arkansas he met his wife, Jo Ann Nelson and together they had two children, Angie and John.

After Merwyn's time in the service the family moved to the family farm in Kansas and later relocated to Casper, Wyoming. He worked for many years in the oil field industry, until his retirement in 2020. The next two years he traveled the country in his travel trailer revisiting all the places that were special to him in his lifetime.

Merwyn had an incredible passion for working on cars, most evenings he could be found out in his shop tinkering on his truck.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Jo Ann and his father, Lawrence.

Merwyn is survived by his daughter, Angie (Kyle) Smith; son, John (Priscilla) Bell; grandchildren, Austin (Jennifer) Smith, Jessica Smith, Kyler Bell, Ethan Bell and Dylan Smith; great grandchild, Gabriella Smith; mother, Millie Bell; and his brother, Dan Bell.
