Bellamy Blake Estep

June 16, 2021 — September 24, 2023


Bellamy Blake Estep, affectionately known as Bell, was born on June 16, 2021, in Charleston, West Virginia. He passed away unexpectedly on September 24, 2023, in Dothan, Alabama. Bell was a gentle soul who brought immense joy and happiness to his family and all who knew him.

Bell was born prematurely at 27 weeks, weighing just 1 pound and 9 ounces. Despite his rough start, he proved himself to be a little fighter, a true warrior. His strength and resilience were an inspiration to everyone around him. His infectious smile and joyful spirit were a testament to his unwavering courage and determination.

Bell had a special bond with his mother, Brittany Estep. He was her sidekick, always by her side, sharing countless moments of love and laughter. He loved laying on the floor playing with his toys, taking walks in the stroller at the park, and spending quality time with his siblings. His father, Anthony Marinelli, cherished every moment with his little boy, who brought so much light and love into their lives.

Bell was preceded in death by his beloved grandmother, Elizabeth Swiger, and his great-grandparents, Phillip Estep, Donna Karanicolas, Nich Karanicolas, and Giovanni Marinelli. He is survived by his mother, Brittany Estep; father, Anthony Marinelli; siblings, Morgan Carr, Briley Carr, Gavin Carr, Paige Carr, Anthony Marinelli, Jr., Cameron Marinelli, and Scarlett Marinelli. He also leaves behind his grandparents, Jackie Estep, and Robert and Rita Marinelli; aunt, Ashley Sowards; uncle, Joshua Marinelli; cousins, Skylar Sowards, Pashana Sowards, and Barry Fletcher, Jr., and great-grandparents, Shelby Estep, and Maxine Marinelli; and special friend, Peter Carr, Jr.

Bell's life, though short, was filled with love, joy, and happiness. He was a beacon of hope and strength, a testament to the power of resilience and the human spirit. His memory will live on in the hearts of his family and all who had the privilege of knowing him. His gentle spirit, infectious smile, and unwavering courage will forever be remembered.

Bellamy Blake Estep, a gentle soul, a warrior, a source of joy and happiness, will be deeply missed. His life was a brief gift to us all, and he will forever be in our hearts. May his spirit continue to inspire and guide us, reminding us of the strength and resilience that lie within us all.
