David Bell Memorial Fund

Dave Bell, 47, died suddenly while participating in a surf ski race. Dave was a lifelong sports enthusiast, who loved cycling, Aikido, and paddling, but his greatest passion and joy was his family. Dave leaves behind Krisin, his wife of 27 years, as well as two children, Fiona, 19, and Liam, 16.

To say the world has lost an amazing husband, father, friend, and man of integrity would be an understatement. Kristin and Dave were a true love story and that love has always been reflected through their children. Dave touched the lives of many across the world. He will continue to touch our lives through our memories that can never be taken away.

This fund will support the higher education costs of Fiona and Liam and provide scholarships for youth in the cycling and paddling communities.
