Lottery win allowed farm boy to do what he was 'born for'
By Krista SEGGEWISS, Mon., May 26, 2008
He was known as the unofficial mayor of east London.
Hundreds of Friends and family hoisted a glass to honour Earl BELL Friday, the day of his funeral, at the St. Regis Tavern he owned.
One of Ontario's first lottery winners, BELL used his $100,000 prize to buy the London bar, a fixture on Dundas Street for 27 years.
"He called all the girls who worked here Earl's pearls," said tavern employee Sheree RUDNICKI.
BELL died May 20 after a battle with cancer. He was 66.
"Earl was a straight shooter who would do anything for anybody," said Ken McVITTIE, a tavern regular.
Born on a farm near Hensall, BELL grew up milking cows. A practical joker, he would squirt milk or toss mice at his sister. BELL moved to Toronto for a short time before settling in London.
"When we walked down Yonge Street, we'd never wait in line for any establishment," recalled Ron MASON, BELL's brother-in-law and athletic director at Michigan State University. "Everyone knew Earl."
A lottery ticket purchase in the early 1980s altered the course of BELL's life.
"The lottery win really changed Earl because it enabled him to do the thing he loved the most," said MASON. " Earl couldn't have been a better bar owner. He was born for it."
The St. Regis is a small spot catering to a close-knit community and known for Saturday jam nights.
"The place is an institution," said RUDNICKI. " Earl's rules still go. They were: Respect the staff; respect him and respect the business."
Remembered for his generous spirit, BELL often took in regulars and gave them a place to stay in the hotel. BELL sponsored baseball, softball and basketball teams.
"He had a big heart, everybody loved him," said wife Shani, who met BELL when she played on a St. Regis Tavern softball team. "I miss him."
The two were married in Barbados in 2002. A father, stepfather and grandfather, BELL loved sports, fishing and horse races.
"He had an unbelievable knack for picking horses and football teams," said MASON.
Perhaps BELL's most defining quality was his flair for conversation. He loved to read newspapers and discuss current events.
"Earl was a people person and the life of the party," said MASON. "No matter where he went, people surrounded him."
