John Edward Sellers



John Edward Sellers, born the 18th of June, 1928, and died the 15th of May, 2009 at home, in the loving care of his wife. John asked June Marie Harrington to marry him two hours after they met and although he did have to wear her down, they spent the next 56 years together. John loved his four children; Crystal (Bruce), Eagle Point, Ore., Carol (Allen), Wylie, Texas, John (Deta), Tracy, Calif, and Bret (Diane) Edmunds, Wash. He felt very blessed to have 10 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, all joys to him. John was gifted with a charming, magnetic personality, and astounding physical strength. His grandchildren would say, "Grandpa's buff!" He knew no greater praise than for people to say he could get it done! The weekend before he died, John enjoyed visiting the project sites where he had spent so much time and care. He was a trusting soul who never met a person he didn't like!
