Powells Point

Robert Emmett Sebrell "Bob" was born on September 21, 1950 in Charlotte, NC. He attended Woodberry Forest Prep School in Virginia, where he played football and was in the Turtle Society. He graduated in 1972 from UNC Chapel Hill where he was a member of Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Bob always loved to fish. He moved to Ocracoke Island in 1988 and bought Tradewinds Tackle Shop, which he and his wife Nancy ran for 18 years. Bob served on the board of Ocracoke's Surf Fishing Tournament for years. Bob's family and friends will always remember his great sense of humor, his laugh, and his love of adventure. Bob and Nancy retired recently, and moved farther up the Outer Banks where Bob worked with Home Depot. Bob is survived by his loving wife Nancy of Powells Point, NC, and three wonderful children: Ashley Sebrell of Raleigh and Rob Sebrell of Asheville, whose mother is Debbie Skinner of Rocky Mount; and Gene Perry of Nags Head, whose dad was Melvin Perry of Colerain, NC; and three siblings: David Sebrell of Ashland, Oregon, Alice Sebrell of Asheville, and Ann Ehringhaus of Ocracoke Island and Carrboro. A celebration of Bob's life will be held on the Outer Banks in the spring. Memorial donations may be sent to Ocracoke Health Center, PO Box 543, Ocracoke Island, NC 27960, or Eastern NC Alzheimer's Foundation, 5171 Glenwood Ave, Suite 101, Raleigh, NC 27612.
