Henry A. Sellers

Service Scheduled for: Saturday, Jan. 26 12:00 PM
Died: Jan. 17, 2019
Henry A. Sellers, 74, passed away on January 17, 2019. He was born on October 23, 1944 to Henry and Ethel (Platt) Sellers of Philadelphia, PA. A Philly native, he married Carol (Peifer) Sellers on September 11, 1966. Henry had an admirable work ethic with the belief he could always do more. Henry worked in sales for multiple national painting companies, was a co-owner of Colonial Decorating, and successfully ran his own business, Sellers Painting, for over twenty years.

Henry and Carol began their family in Lancaster, PA, spent a few years in Syracuse, NY and the remainder of their years raising their family in Limerick, PA. Henry enjoyed a good life running his business, coaching his three children in softball and baseball, telling a good joke and an even better story, and as he put it “crushing the competition” in his Montgomery County Senior softball league. A devout and lifelong member of the New Apostolic Church, no one will forget Henry’s booming voice, his funny jokes, his love of family, and his larger-than-life presence. An avid hunter and fisherman, Henry was always happy in the woods or on the water. He demonstrated the value of hard work and a sense of humor.

Henry was predeceased by his wife, Carol, and his brother Robert Sellers of Furlong, PA. He is survived by his three children – daughter Robyn and husband Scott Elsing, children Patrick and Nicholas of Sellersville, PA; daughter Shawn and husband William Hoffman, children Marah and Aleah of Birdsboro, PA; and son Darren Sellers, wife Bethanne, children Lillian and Joseph of Carlisle, PA; his brother James Sellers of Douglassville, PA; and his sister Joyce Schiller of Yardley, PA as well as many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the New Apostolic Church on West Ridge Pike and Limerick Center Roads, Limerick, PA. Visitation with the family begins at 10:30 a.m. with a 12:00 p.m. service and reception immediately following.
