On Sunday, November 13, 2022, Noble “Vernon” Sellars Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Great-Great Grandfather, passed from this life to his eternal reward at the age of 104. Vernon was known as the “Rock of the Family”. Always putting God first in his life, he was kind, compassionate, self-sacrificing and lead with courage. A true testament to his faith, Vernon was faithful in his prayer life. He prayed every night, lifting names of family, friends, ministers and those met by happenstance to God. He prayed out loud lifting every request to the Lord. He was a member of the Church of God. He enjoyed the fellowship of friends, Brothers and Sisters in Christ and family. He never met a stranger nor missed an opportunity to profess his faith. He lived his life according to Matthew 4:19 “Come follow me and I will make you Fishers of Men”. He was born in Selma, NC on January 12, 1918 to Daniel Crawford and Smithie Ann Sellars. He was a retired welder. He enjoyed traveling, visiting most US States in addition to Canada and Mexico. Vernon was a talented carpenter creating many cherished gifts for his family and friends. He is survived by a son Kenneth Sellars of Baltimore Maryland, four daughters, Golda Williamson of Seaford, Delaware, Barbara Dunbar (Dwayne) of Drexel, Missouri, Marie Kasper (Dave) of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Sue Wilson (John) of Stanton, Kentucky, seventeen grandchildren, forty-four great grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents Daniel Crawford and Smithie Ann Sellars, the love of his life for 59 years, his first wife Minnie Alberta Woodard, his second wife Jo Self, and his brothers Crawford, Andrew, Calvin, Vivian, George and Grover Sellars.
