  • Born on June 23, 1938 in Chattanooga, Tennessee, United States.

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Aaron Sewell, 76, born on June 23, 1938.  He passed away peacefully at home on April 23, 2015. We will remember him forever.

He leaves his loving wife of 56 years, Diana (Peeler) Sewell; Daughter Yolanda Sewell; Son Eric Sewell; Sister Lillie Douglass, Grandkids Evan and Aaron Sewell, many nieces and nephews and many close friends behind.

He was born in Chattanooga, TN to the parents of Ray and Grace Mae (Owens) Sewell. He graduated from Chickamauga High School in 1956 as a star athlete. He attended college in Chattanooga when he soon married Diana Peeler. After the birth of their son they decided FL was a better home and made it their permanent residence.  He continued his love of sports and was active in a business men's bowling league for over two decades and a mixed league with his wife as well, he was a coach and the president of the Pinellas County Junior Bowling league, and also coached his dauighter's softball team for many years.

Moving to Pinellas County, he found his profession as a master electrician eventually owning his own commercial electrical company; Interstate Electric of Florida, Inc. He was a proud member of IBEW for 53 years. With the ability to fix anything, he would always use those talents to help others.  After retiring, he, his wife Diana, and their pug PJ hit the road in their new RV to explore the country together until illness brought them back home to Florida a few years later.

He was a member of Harbor Side Christian Church for many years before his illness prevented him from attending. They eventually moved to Sun City Center to enjoy life in a retirement community.

When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. We shall have a treasure chest of his memories to carry with us forever; therefore his spirit and love will forever be with us.

Dad, I can't believe it has been three years since we lost you yet it seems like a lifetime since I've been able to hold you or talk to you. Today is so tough.... I know writing this is only for my benefit as I talk to you everyday. My life will never be the same but I was so lucky to have a dad like you! No one could have had a more loving and caring dad. You would have done anything for your family, and you did sacrifice so much for us so we could have everything we needed and wanted. I hope you know I appreciated it; that is only a part of what made you a such a special dad, person and man. I will always love and miss you every day for the rest of my days. Love, your daughter.

Another year has passed. The memory of my brother is fading a bit but there are some special times that I remember. We had a renewal of friendship on our trip into Alaska which was very special for me. I knew at the time that his health was failing so I wanted the time we had to be special for both of us and it was. I look forward to seeing him again someday along with my own sweet husband in heaven.

I just want to wish a Merry Christmas to my dad and he knows how much I miss him every day. The holidays are always hard not having him or the others that have left before him here with us...may all who read this remember them in their thoughts and prayers. The memories keep them with us as does the love they had for all of us and the belief they continue to look over us each and every day. I love you with all my heart dad.

Never sure how to address this. Dad will never read this but hopefully people he has touched will. We all want to leave behind some positive impact on the world. That is not in material possessions but in the lives that we shape and help during our lives. My Dad definitely shaped and helped so many people and each of those people will be what keeps his spirit alive. So this testament is not for him but for the people who have been touched by him. As you move on in your lives, use at least some part of today to remember how he changed your life and hold onto that for a while. Life definitely moves on so we each can create even more memories with others but it is also good to mingle the new memories with some older ones too. Peace to all.

Dad, I was thinking of you from the moment I woke to the moment I went to sleep yesterday....just as I do every other day. Yesterday was only the day that signified the two year mark of you leaving this life; but NEVER my heart as my dad. I love you and you will never be replaced. Yolanda

My Dear Brother is in heaven with Jesus Christ. It is really hard for me to believe that you have been gone from this earth for 2 years today. I know that you are finally healthy and enjoying your time with our Savior. Rest easy and know that we will all be together again in that Mansion in the sky one day. Love to you from your big sister.

Dad, I miss you everyday but you are always with me from the moment I wake up. I know you heard my happy birthday to you this morning; every time I asked what you wanted for your birthday or Father's Day you always said nothing. Well this birthday all you're getting is my love and I know that you know that. I also know that you want all of us to continue on and be happy and live our lives to the fullest. But either way we miss you everyday and think of you everyday and I still play the message on my phone to hear your voice. I love you!

Baby, I miss you with every breath I take. I am so loss without you. I cry every night. You were always my safe place. I told you that all the time. Now I am trying so hard just to hang on. I wake up at 3Am and feel you are with me.I ran away because everything reminded me of you and I couldn't handle the pain of you not being there. I only know how to be a WE not a me. You were the best part of me, now what? Love always Mrs. Aaron Sewell Read our Story in stories

We always talk about how hard it can be to remember things - where you left their keys, or the name of an acquaintance. BUT then some memories will never pass. Death is just a passing away of a body but not the soul and of the memories. God keeps his soul, we keep his memories.
Posted by Lillie Douglass on 23rd April 2016
Even though you have been gone a year, we miss you still. I know that you are in God's hands and no longer suffer to breath because God has given you new lungs and they are filled with His love. We will hold your memory close to us forever.

Your precious wife misses you so much. I will try my best to be a comfort to her. She is trying to stay busy but preserve he lifelong memories of your many years together. Rest now without pain and suffering. Love

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal. Saying goodbye to you was one of the most difficult tasks that I have faced. The memories of times we spent together is a blessing for me to know that we shared as a brother/sister a love for each other. We will meet again in eternity. I love you dear brother.

I knew that it was coming and that we'd have to say goodbye. But Dad, I wasn't ready and the sad day has arrived. I'll no longer feel your arms around me tightly when I cry, or be able to kiss you softly or wave to you goodbye. I will never really say goodbye to you dad because I know this is not the end for us to see each other. You used to spoil me rotten with all your love and care. Your battle is now over, no more tears flowing down your cheek, no more pain, no more suffering, now you are no longer weak but strong forever once again. I still do not understand why this had to happen to you, but I am proud to say you are my dad, the greatest man I ever knew. For now we need to go in separate ways. I remember how your arms hold me and give me strength. You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything; in my triumphs you were always proud. I'm very grateful and proud to call you my dad. Here deep inside my heart you'll always be. I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time. I remember the last time I held your hand and how you looked at me in the eyes. If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go. I felt the world stop and my heart stop beating when mom told me you were gone....... How I wish I was only dreaming. Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes and I couldn't speak for a while. Thank you Dad.... For always understanding, listening, caring, and loving me my whole life. One of the greatest gifts God gave me was YOU........ It's difficult to let you go but I must... I must return the gift God gave me... And know that you now have no more pain... but we have such happy memories left behind in our bloodshot eyes. I'll always miss you, Dad, and I'll always love you too. So watch over me Dad, as I know you always do, and I will keep remembering how much I love you until we are again reunited.
