He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty Sellers; parents, Devan and Anna Sellers; four brothers, Kelly Sellers, John Sellers, Charles Sellers, Irvin Sellers, and a sister, Gloria Willene Sellers.

He is survived by his daughter, Julianna Sellers Staires of Madison; two granddaughters, Deanna Lynn Staires of Birmingham, AL, and Andrea Leigh Staires of Madison; two sisters, Clara Sellers Barton of Orlando, FL and Dorothy Sellers Palmer of Hattiesburg; and several nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be Monday February 3, 2014 from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Moore Funeral Home in Hattiesburg. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to the Hederman Cancer Center at Baptist Medical Center in Jackson, MS.
