Lucas was born in 1988 to Allison (Williams) and Steve Bell, in Grantsville, Utah. He was raised in Tooele County and lived there his entire life.
Lucas attended elementary school in Grantsville and Stansbury Park. Lucas was raised with help from his grandparents Betty Lou (Johnson) and Robert Williams. He would go every day after school to their family farm, and the Williams Family Video store in Grantsville, and help feed cows and pigs along with various other chores. His mom insisted he helped; he loved to go, but his grandpa and he would bicker about how to get the chores done. His grandpa always held a very special place in Lucas’ heart. They had a relationship as if he were his father.
Lucas started working at Chemical Lime until it closed in 2008. He then worked in Dugway for STC/Jacobs as a mechanical technician for nine years, making many friends at both jobs
Lucas attended junior high and high school in Grantsville. It was in high school where he met his soulmate Michelle (Raymond). The two started talking and skipping church classes together from that day on. They were inseparable and they were a package deal. After graduation in June 2006, the two married on July 20, 2006, in a small ceremony as he wished. They began their life in Grantsville together. After two years of marriage, they chose to honor their love with a child. Lucas was a proud man of his son, Lucas Colten Bell (10). Lucas would spend every day working and building his and Michelle’s dreams. Letting Michelle do all her weird projects, cussing a little but loving her for it. One day, Lucas called home from work and Michelle told him she had torn the banister down. He questioned everything she had an idea about, but always would support her in whatever it was she was doing. He wasn’t much of a partier, but because Michelle loved parties, he would join her begrudgingly with a smile and love for his wife. He HATED camping, but always had a weakness for his soulmate and best friend.
Lucas was always more comfortable at home with his son, where they would play video games, clean the house, play fetch with the dogs, spend too much money on toys, and play indoor soccer and basketball while breaking Michelle’s knickknacks. His life was his wife and son! If he wasn’t at work providing for them he was home spending time with them. There were a few times when Michelle caught Colten and Lucas playing a video game online while Lucas was at work! There was never a day that went by that Lucas didn’t go out of his way for his “loves.” Lucas insisted Michelle follow her dreams and go to beauty school. He supported her every single day and always praised her as to how good she is; always complimenting her on her growing business and talent. He did hate how he was always last on the list for a haircut, but as of late said he was growing his hair out to look just like his son. His beard was just a part of him, and everyone was always jealous!
Lucas is survived by his soul mate Michelle Bell and their son Colten Bell; parents Allison (Jim) Parker, Steve (Annette) Bell; siblings Tori (Dixon) and children; Jacy Bell and children; Remington (Alecia) Lawrence and children, Seth, Cambria, Ashtyn, and Nixxon; Hunter (Shannon) Hawkes; Cody Christensen; in-laws Marianne Raymond; Stephan A. (Kristen) Raymond, and their children Raleigh and Vinson; and many other in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and dear friends. And he would hate us to forget his dogs Max and Stella.
Lucas is preceded in death by his grandparents Robert W. and Betty Lou Williams, and father in-law Stephan L Raymond.
