Keith Bell

Keith F. Bell, 67, of Denver, PA died of natural causes on February 15, 2016. He was born in New Jersey and was the son of June & Joseph LaSala.  Surviving are his brother Karl LaSala, his daughters  Eileen Bell Foglio and Laurie Bell Reinhart and his best friend, John Heigh.  He was preceded in death by sister Karen Bell and brother Kevin LaSala.

Keith was a member of New Life Assembly of God. He was a man of God who ministered to inner city youths of Lancaster, PA.  He gave and loved endlessly.  He was a blessing to many families for over 30 years.  He became family to all and formed friendships that transcends time.  As Keith would say, “Love never Ends” “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life” John 3:16.  His unrelenting faith in God gave him the courage to minister when all else failed.

Keith was a Vietnam Veteran in the U.S. Army. He was proud to serve his country.  Keith worked for Quality Truck Lines in Denver, PA for 18 years.  He loved being on the open road but always came back home for his ministry.

Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, February 27th at 3:00 p.m. at New Life Assembly of God located at 1991 Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, PA 17602.  The funeral will be held on a later date that will be posted through Facebook.

Please come join Keith’s Memorial Service to show this amazing man of God the love he showed us all.

  • I new Keith from the Army over the years we somehow lost track of each other . He was a wonderful friend during those years. He was very loving I’m sorry to hear he’s passed .If someone has picture I would love to have a copy ,my e mail is below

  • I was sorry to hear of Keith’s passing. I really wish I would have known about his service yesterday, I would have wanted to attend. This article about him was well written & accurate.

    I worked with Keith (1991 – 1995) as well as 8 others for The Christian Thanksgiving Care Gang (what we & the kids from Lancaster city called our group), which grew to 77 kids ages 3 through 15 at that time. Keith had such a big heart for any child that wanted to come along for a time of games, singing, Bible lessons & snacks. Anytime Keith would learn of a free event (like a Carmen concert, a Living Waters presentation, etc…), he would go into town & take as many as he could fit in his 15 passenger van. He did all he could to feed as many as he could Spiritually, socially, emotionally, & physically. He would drive around collecting donations of food from grocery whole sellers/retailers & the kids in the group would let him know where families were who could use a little help (food-wise), & they would all deliver the food to those families together telling them “Jesus loves you”.

    He knew all the kids by name, he knew their families & would become an extended family member to many of them.

    He was a humble man of humble means, doing all that he could for so many, & letting them all know that Jesus loves them. And now he can rest & enjoy the treasures he built up in Heaven, the one(s) there now & the many others that will follow as time goes by.

    Miss you Bro,
    Peter Todd
