Poetic Obituaries: In March Joe [Bell] was honoured by

"A Special Night for a Special Man", a tribute at the 17th anniversary meeting of the Live Poets at the Mussel Inn in Onekaka.

Joe had helped to found the Live Poets in 1996.

Joe was too ill to attend but at the time he said he was "moved and humbled by the tribute". At the tribute fellow poets talked about his love of poetry, which often addressed local issues.

"He knew how to get a message out in a poem without being so controversial," said Victoria Davis.
