HAMLET — Mr. Billy Ray Sewell, Sr., 49, of Hamlet, passed away, Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021, at his residence.

He was born in Bennettsville, South Carolina, son of Charles Sewell and Sarah Thompson Sewell.

Mr. Sewell worked previously for Reliance Packaging as a printing operator. He never met a stranger and was always a pleasure to be around with his funny sense of humor. He loved his family and enjoyed his music whether playing his guitar or singing and really enjoyed a game of horseshoes!. He left us way too soon and will surely be missed.

An outdoor service will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 at 2 p.m., at Bible Freewill Church of Worship, 682 Hwy. 381, Hamlet. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. All guests will please wear a mask and continue to practice social distancing.

He is survived by his children, Brittany Kay Howell (Derek) of Hamlet, Amanda Brooke Sewell (Hunter Woolard) of Rockingham and Billy R. Sewell Jr. (Tracy Holder) of Vass; brothers, Charles Ray Sewell (Joyce),  the Rev. Tracey Sewell (Grace) and Buddy Sewell all of Hamlet; sisters, Janet S. DeBerry and Frances S. Hicks both of Hamlet, Brenda Kay Joyner (Larry) of Rockingham and Barbara Edmonds (Kevin) of Hoffman; six grandkids that were his heart, Makayla Brown, Dawson and Della Rae Woolard, Gunnar Bray Sewell, Riley and Dane Howell and Gatlin Holder;  the mother of his children, Mandy Sewell of Aberdeen; and several special nieces and nephews.
