Longtime Duluth business leader and former mayoral candidate Charlie Bell, has passed away.

The administrator of Spirit Valley Assisted Living said that Bell suffered a heart attack while shoveling snow at the facility on Tuesday.

Bell was a 1972 graduate of UMD and ran for mayor in 2007. He was active in the West Duluth business community.

Duluth Mayor Don Ness, who was Bell's opponent in 2007, said on Facebook: 

"What a terrible loss for Duluth. Charlie was a passionate community leader - he was a rare breed of a man who dared to dream big and then rolled up his sleeves to get the job done."

Bell Brothers Funeral Home said services are pending.
