Billy passed away peacefully at home after an extended illness surrounded by his wife and loved ones on June 5, 2023. Billy Sewell was the devoted husband of 30 years to Beth Hall Sewell. He was the loving father of Shannon (Charlie) Smith, Kelli Dawkins, and Sarah Beth Sewell and granddaddy to Drew (Corrine) Smith, Abbie (Trent) Dunn, Mayson Smith, Camryn Dawkins, and Riley Dawkins, and great granddaddy of Burgin, Vivian, Troy, and Leighton. He is also survived by his former son-in-law Roben Dawkins. Billy was born on February 6, 1941 at home in the Clarkson Community in Webster County, Mississippi and graduated from Cumberland High School. After graduating from Delta State University, he had a happy life as a teacher and coach for 38 years. He enjoyed all sports and the outdoors with basketball being his passion. Billy was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Starkville, MS. He cherished his family and friends and he was exceedingly grateful and proud of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, as well as his extended family. He savored life’s simple pleasures such as watching birds in his backyard, sitting on the porch with friends, going to check on his cows, gardening, riding his Goldwing motorcycle, fishing, boating on the river, MSU sporting events, staying in contact with former basketball players, and watching children and grandchildren in activities. He was preceded in death by his parents, Bryant and Celeste Walker Sewell, brother Gerald Sewell, and sister, Mary Harpole. In honor of Billy’s life, spend a little extra time with loved ones, laugh like you mean it, and remember to say I love you. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the charity of your choice.
