Serving The Community: Bell and Johnson Funeral Service

Phillip Bell, who owned Lewis Funeral Home at 311 North Patrick Street, is fondly remembered as Chick by many African Americans in Alexandria, Virginia. Phillip ran a professional funeral business for many years on Wolfe and Patrick Streets and knew most of the African Americans in Alexandria and they too knew him. Since Chick was a native Alexandrian, most of the old-timers would seek out his service in their time of need.
