Virgil Dwight Sellers, 83, of Edmond, went to see Jesus on Saturday, April 3, 2021, with his loving family by his side. Born October 9, 1937, in Chattanooga, OK, he was the son of the late J.C. and Marguerite (Huffer) Sellers. He retired from General Motors after 24 years of service.
He was preceded in death by his parents and infant son, Curtis Lee Sellers. He leaves behind his wife of 62 years, Mickey (Shepherd) Sellers; children, Tammy (Tim) Townsend, Bill (Deb) Sellers; grandchildren, Brett (Jeanna) Townsend, Brittany Townsend, Stephen (Alicia) Sellers, Nicholas Sellers; great-grandchildren, Madison Townsend, Harper Townsend, Lincoln Sellers, Remi Sellers; step grandchildren, Ryan Gray, Chad Gray; step great-grandchild, Jaxon Hamilton; brothers, Duane (Judy) Sellers, Lonnie (Arlene) Sellers; sister, Juana Stoll; and many other family and friends.
He enjoyed working in the yard and was proud of his collector El-Camino. Nothing made him happier than the joyful chaos of family get-togethers. If something were broken, he could fix it and he had God given patience in teaching others that skill. He took great pride in the success of others.
