Dwight Sellers


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.

Family and friends will be received Wednesday, April 7, 2021 from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Mathews Funeral Home, 601 S. Kelly Ave., Edmond.  The funeral service will be held Thursday, April 8, at 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home chapel. Burial will follow at Waterloo Cemetery (Waterloo Rd. and Kelly Ave.).

  1. Dwight was one of the main people who befriended us at Trinity Baptist. When you are new in a church, warm hearts mean a lot. That’s what Dwight was. He set aside his own troubles and helped us feel welcomed. He raised two super kids too. He will be missed, but he has left a great legacy in his family. Our love to his family.
