Derek Jason Bell


Derek Jason Bell

With indescribable sadness the family announces the sudden passing of Derek Jason Bell, age 49, of South Korea, formerly of Montague PE which occurred on Saturday, November 14, 2020, while diving in the Jeju Islands.

Born in Montague, PE, on August 12, 1971, son of Scott and Brenda (O’Connor) Bell. Derek was a graduate of Montague High School and went on to St. Thomas University to earn his Bachelor of Arts Degree and later his Masters Degree in ESL at the DanKook University in Seoul where he stayed to teach. Derek spent his last 20 years in South Korea where he taught at various universities around Seoul. However, he never lost his love for his home province of P.E.I. He returned annually to do what he loved most: spending time on the water having fun with his friends and family. Derek had a love for teaching, playing ball hockey, diving, wrestling and all things outdoors. He also had a love for all animals that he came by honestly from his parents Scott and Brenda. He is survived by his loving parents, life partner HaeJeong Jin, aunts and uncles; Sandra Gordon, Debby Shields (Raymond), Jerry Bell (Deirdre), John Bell (Cindy), Scott Garnhum (Tanya), Step-Grandfather Jack Garnhum and many cousins and extended family. He was predeceased by Grandparents Cecil and Bertha Bell and Flora Garnhum.
