May 18, 1935 - January 31, 2021
Tommy L. Sevy, age 85, of Bear, DE, son of the late Noel and Mattie Sevy, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 31, 2021. Tommy was born and raised in Corliss, WV. At the age of 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed at the New Castle Air Base. After serving four years, he operated both Airport Esso and Stanton Esso. Driven by his desire to be self-employed, he opened Sevy’s Auto Service. After years of running his successful auto repair business and serving loyal customers, he sold the shop to Gene Hammond, who apprenticed under him and had become like family. His desire to serve was not limited to his customers. When a friend or neighbor was in need, Tommy was there. Whether it was mechanical help or plowing someone out of a snowstorm, he was the first person people would call. His desire to help others also extended to the animals he rescued and cared for over the years. Upon retiring from his auto service business, Tommy got to pursue a personal passion – excavation. He turned it into a business that provided for his family and community for 20 years. Tommy had a large family and took great joy sharing his love of machinery and the outdoors by giving his grandchildren and great-grandchildren rides on his tractors. Tommy is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Sarah Beeson Sevy; son Thomas Sevy (Shirley); daughters: Gale Stamper, Christy Crampton (Steven) and Jennifer Traverso (Jeff); brother James Sevy (Juanita); sister Lois Latta; sister-in-law Roberta Gallion; grandchildren Lori Rogers, Sarena Able, Robert Sevy, Barbara Hill, Bradley Sevy, Marian Sevy, Steven Crampton, Jr., Sean Crampton, Wesley Crampton, Marissa Crampton, Caitlyn Traverso, Emma Traverso and Brendan Traverso; and 13 great-grandchildren. Tommy was predeceased by his grandson Michael “Mick” Keeley. Arrangements and burial will be private due to Covid-19 concerns. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Faithful Friends, 12 Germay Drive, Wilmington, Delaware 19804 or Bible Fellowship Church, 808 S. Old Baltimore Pike, Newark, DE 19702.
