Rodney Allen Sebrell

Rodney “Rod” Allen Sebrell, a determined, loving, and reliable father, grandfather, son, and brother, died on Monday, June 26, 2023. Rod 69, of Charlotte, was born November 22, 1953, the son of Lloyd and Patricia (Freese) Sebrell. After graduating from Maple Valley High School Rod enlisted in the Army where he proudly served as a Fuel Truck Driver in Germany. His passion for truck driving led him to a career in driving truck. Rod was known for his penmanship and his ability to keep a neat and tidy trucking log. Rod’s friends at The Eaton Place will miss their daily visitor. He ate breakfast just about every morning there for many years. Rod was a tall, thin man but he sure loved his food, attending family gatherings. He was also known for his green thumb and ability to tend a garden; he helped his mother each year with hers. Above all, Rod enjoyed being around people whether it was at The Eaton Place, or at other functions around town.
Rod is survived by his daughter, Scarlet Eggleston; grandchildren, Zoe Hood, Ava Hood, and RJ Hawkins; mother, Patricia; siblings, Randy (Donna) Sebrell, and Carla (William) Myers; dear friend, Bryon Wells. He was predeceased by his father, Lloyd; and brother, Craig Sebrell.
