Ronald Murrel Sells, 78, of Wadesville, passed away Saturday, May 2, 2015 at Golden Living Center-Brentwood.

He was born in Kansas City, Kansas, on January 11, 1937 to the late Donald and Edna (Croy) Sells.

He graduated from Laverne High School, Laverne, OK. Ron furthered his education at Gradwohl School of Laboratory, St. Louis, MO, where he met and married the love of his life, the late Nancy (Laib) Sells on August 1, 1959.

Ron and Nancy worked together several years in the medical field, and eventually settled in Oklahoma to raise their family. Ron worked 27 years as a lab and x-ray tech. In 1986, after the birth of his first and only grandchild, he ended his career, and he and Nancy moved to Wadesville to be closer to their granddaughter and family. Ron became part-owner in the family business Universal Diecutters Corporation and retired in 2002. In his spare time, Ron enjoyed tinkering in his workshop and woodworking. He did beautiful work and could fix and build anything! Ron was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather and friend, and will be greatly missed by those who knew him. 

He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 54 years Nancy (Laib) Sells and his parents. 

Ron is survived by his daughter Tonya (Darrell) Paddock; son Joe Sells both of Wadesville, IN; brother Donald Jean Sells, Cartersville, GA; sisters Donna Lee Wade, Larned, KS and Eula (Edwin) Modrick, Amarillo, TX ; granddaughter Natalie (Roddy) Blaylock; great-grandsons, Easton and the twins Asa and Owen Blaylock of New Harmony, IN.
