  The South Carolina Farm Bureau issued the following statement:
  “Our hearts are heavy with the news that Harry Bell, past President of South Carolina Farm Bureau, passed away on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.
  Bell served as South Carolina Farm Bureau President for 27 years (1971 – 1997) and as American Farm Bureau Federation Vice President for 8 years (1986 – 1994). He also served in many leadership roles within SC Farm Bureau affiliated companies. Harry Bell assumed the role of President during a very challenging time for SCFB. He left the organization on sound financial footing that has allowed SCFB to grow, prosper and carry out its mission of representing agriculture.
  President Bell’s leadership and passion left a lasting impact on not only South Carolina Farm Bureau, but on all American agriculture. Our hearts are with all who knew and loved Harry Bell.”
