Obituary For Junior Ray Sewell

Junior Ray Sewell, 58 of Jacksonville, NC passed away peacefully at Onslow Memorial Hospital on December 20, 2021. Junior was born in Jacksonville, NC on January 13, 1963 to the late Haywood and Cilla Cummings Sewell. Also, preceding him in death is a stepson Christopher Watts.

Surviving Junior are his two daughters, Jessica R. Sewell of the home and Cilla N. Sewell of Jacksonville, NC; three grandchildren, Nylia, Jayden and Jayshawn Williams.

Junior loved fishing and loved his grandchildren even more. His favorite thing to do with his grandson, Jayden was to cook on the grill. He loved joking with his granddaughter, Nylia by picking at her and with his precious youngest grandson, Jayshawn they both enjoyed eating hot and spicy foods. Junior was an amazing dad and would do anything in the world to make sure his family was okay. God put him back in his daughters lives for a reason. He also loved fishing with his best friend Cowboy. Knowing Junior is in heaven gives us peace; he will be surely missed, but forever in our hearts.
