William “Bill” T. Sexton, 55, of Sullivan went home to the Lord on November 23, 2020 following a lengthy illness. He was born in Lakewood, OH to Billie and Annie (nee Crowder) Sexton on February 3, 1965.
Bill was a graduate of Black River High School. He was an extremely hard worker and enjoyed working as an Expeditor at Charter Steel in Cleveland, OH. He took great pride in his work and enjoyed the people he worked with. Bill loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, being the number one fan for his children, watching his sons play sports, and being a “Papa”. His family meant everything to him; his children and grandchildren were the highlights of his life and his greatest accomplishment. His grandchildren, Coy, Cru, Riya and Mason were the apples of his eye and being their Papa was his dream come true. He looked forward to every moment he got to spend with them.
He was a devoted husband to Shirley (nee Weber) for 35 years. They were married on May 4, 1985 and built a beautiful life together.
Bill will be greatly missed by his wife, Shirley; daughter, Tiffany (Andrew); sons, Tyler (Payton), Travis (Jenna), and Trent (Janelle); sister, Shelly Wingard (Dave), Jewell Sollars and Annie Wood; brothers, Dan (Leslie) and Matt (Andrea); grandchildren, Coy, Cru, Riya and Mason, and many nieces and nephews. He was reunited in heaven with his mom, Annie; dad, Billie; sister, Jeanne and son, Timothy.
Family and friends will gather on Sunday, November 29, 2020 from 2-5 pm at Norton-Eastman Funeral Home, 370 S. Main Street, Wellington. A private funeral service and burial will be held at a later date. Social distancing will be enforced and all attending will be required to wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the family to support them during this difficult time.
