Jeffrey Bell

Funeral Director

        Jeff is a 1998 graduate of the Wayne State School of Mortuary Science.  When he was a very young boy and had experienced the loss of a family member, he observed the actions and words of the Funeral Directors.   It was in his observation at this very young age he realized just how important funeral service was to his family and to others in the community.  His experience and its impact on him of the Funeral Director’s words, actions and gentleness toward his family and the desire to get them through a very difficult time that ignited Jeff’s interest in funeral service resulting in his career journey toward becoming a Funeral Director.

        In 2000, Jeff married his wife, Jessica.  They reside in Plymouth and have two children who attend the Plymouth-Canton Schools.  When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and seeking out new dining experiences at one of the many incredible restaurants in downtown Plymouth.

        Jeff’s love for the City of Plymouth and its residents has been the driving force in his involvement in the community, and ultimately has paved the way toward making many new friends.  Today, he and his family continue to volunteer for various local Church and civic events.  For example, Jeff has gained much popularity with the local seniors in the community by preparing a cherished family pancake recipe and providing a special pancake breakfast at the Friendship Station three times a year.  He also has started an annual tradition of preparing a hotdog and chips lunch for the Seniors each year on The Detroit Tiger’s Opening Day in April.  Both of these events have proved to be hugely popular with the Plymouth Seniors and have given each of them an opportunity to talk with Jeff and get to know him and his family.  Many residents are quite familiar with another one of his very own recipes - his “lemonade-shake-ups” at an annual children’s event at Praise Baptist Church and as many as 600-800 participants at Plymouth’s Senior Fest had an opportunity to experience this tangy-sweet lemon drink as well.  Those young and old alike have come to know Jeff and his family in the community.  It is through these relationships and community activities that he has gained not only the friendships, but more importantly, he has gained their trust in him by being called upon to meet with them at what may be the most difficult time in their life.

               He is a proud member of the Plymouth Lions Club, The Rotary Club of Plymouth, Past Chairman of The Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, Past Chairman of Plymouth United Way, President of the Plymouth Community council on Aging and Past Board Member of the Plymouth Historical Society.

 Jeff is a highly respected member of the community.  His profession of funeral service fulfills an essential duty to the community and to humanity.   He has a great love for the City of Plymouth and its residents.  His connection to the Plymouth community is not only about building personal relationships.  It is about building relationships that matter.  It is about building a community.  His dedication to the Schrader-Howell Funeral Home, the community of Plymouth and funeral service has provided him with the desire to serve others as he would his own family.
