Garry Allen Sells

February 16, 1958 – September 13, 2022

Garry Allen Sells, 64, of Noblesville, passed away on Tuesday, September 13, 2022 at his home.

He was born on February 16, 1958 to Orville, Sr. and Norma (Durham) Sells in Noblesville.

There are so many things you could say about Mr. Sells. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, son and best friend. While he held many different jobs over the years, just a few shaped the man he became. It started with his first paper route at a very young age where he proudly rode his bike around town ensuring everyone got their papers on time. Mr. Sells was a truck driver for McMahon, Kraft Foods, Gordon Food Service and most importantly Quaker Oats; who called him many years after he left to come back to work as they would not take the hint but it sure made him feel special.

For many years he took great pride working for the city of Noblesville. But one job was never enough for his busy body personality; he always had his side hustle of specialty landscaping. In his later years, Mr. Sells could be seen scooting around town visiting friends both two legged and four, as he always had a treat in his pocket for his special friends. If you happened by the house while he was outside you would always be offered a soda out of his prized Soda machine and a tour of his garden while you drank.

Mr. Sells enjoyed photography, detailing cars, drawing, and classic car restoration. He was a great chef of homemade donuts and milkshakes. He loved his dogs, his grandkids, his nieces and nephews and spending time in his backyard garden sanctuary.

Survivors include his wife Jody Sells; daughter Tawny (Bradley) Amburgey; brother Orville (Janice) Sells, Jr.; sister Ida (Paul) Woolard; two grandchildren Wyatt and Garrett Amburgey; mother-in-law Carletta Kintner; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother Larry Sells; and niece Natasha Woolard.

Services are scheduled to be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 18, 2022 at Randall & Roberts Funeral Home, 1150 Logan Street in Noblesville. Visitation is scheduled to be held from 1 p.m. to the time of service at the funeral home.
