Obituary

On Friday, September 9, 2022, Ronald Noack Bellman, 81, of Olney, MD, suddenly passed away.  

Ron is survived by his caring wife, ‘Lainee’, Mary Elaine (McCarthy) with whom he was married to for 61 years. He is survived by his three beautiful daughters, Lisa Bellman Ryan (Rick), Jacquelyn Bellman Meissner (Kevin), Stephanie Bellman Cary; 5 Grandchildren: Victoria Meissner (Justin Young), Kevin Ronald Meissner. Kyle Cary, Morgan Cary, Summer Ryan; and Great-Grandson, Jackson Young.  He is also survived by his sister, Shirley Bellman Dalley, and brother, Alfred Heyser Bellman, Jr. (Patricia).

Ron was born, March 4, 1941, and raised in the Washington, DC area. In his youth he attended All Saints Episcopal Church in Chevy Chase, MD, where was an active Acolyte.  He graduated in 1958 from Woodrow Wilson High School, NW, D.C., and went onto attend American University. 

At the age of just 13, Ron was the youngest recipient to become an Eagle Scout; Troop 52, All Saints, the largest Boy Scout Troop in the Washington, DC area.  Throughout his youth, Ron was an avid car enthusiast.  He and his older brother, Sonny, held a long-standing reputation for building and racing fast cars in the Metropolitan area. 

Ron married Mary Elaine McCarthy in 1960 and together they moved from the Washington, DC area to Olney, Maryland in 1972, where they raised their three daughters.

Ron retired from GEICO after 44 ½ years. During this time, he was a director of three satellite offices throughout the Washington, DC and Maryland area. Ron was active in the Olney community serving three years as their “Perfected Secretary” in the Olney Kiwanis Club. He also enjoyed coaching softball and basketball with The Olney Boys & Girls Club.  Ron enjoyed playing many sports throughout his years, which included softball, basketball, bowling, golf, boating, water skiing, and swimming. 

Ron spent his childhood summers in Cape May, NJ, with his parents and siblings. He continued spending time at the shores of Cape May throughout his adult life and instilled in his children and grandchildren his love of riding bikes along the beach front, and taking long walks along the shore.

Along with the joy of tinkering with cars and computers, Ron’s other hobbies included his love for animals, which began at an early age. You could always find him ready to nurse squirrels, alligators, turtles, and chipmunks back to health.  But mostly he was affectionately called “the dog whisperer” for the many dogs (Dachshunds) he raised and loved over the years.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 1pm on Friday, September 23, 2022 at All Saint’s Episcopal Church at 3 Chevy Chase Circle, Chevy Chase, Maryland 20815.  Repast to follow church services.
