Bellamy heroically lost the biggest battle of his life to pancreatic cancer on Thursday. He was just 50 years old. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked to please make a donation to Pancan.org. The family would like to thank the nursing staff on South Tower 5 at Wilson Hospital for the care they provided him during his hospitalizations.

According to an online obituary posted by Hopler and Eschbach Funeral Home, Bellamy was born in Paterson, New Jersey. He later enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps after graduating from high school.
