In memory of Harry R. Sexton

1945 – 2017



Fortified with the Sacraments of the Holy Catholic Church, Harry died peacefully surrounded by his loving family early Monday morning, October 23, 2017. Harry was born on September 30, 1945 in Glennonvile, Missouri, and lived in St. Louis. The middle of 10 siblings born to parents Harry  and Mary Sexton. He is preceded in death by Gertrude, George, Charlene, John and Roy. He is survived by siblings Jeanette, Jake, Joan and Paulette; devoted wife Mary (née Parisi), of 50 years, daughters Debbie Johnston (Greg), Cheryl Mohan (Tom) and Son Kevin (Sara). Adoring pawpaw to Grace, Lily, Tommy, Olivia, Gabriel and Ames who were the joy of his life. He is our dearest brother, brother-in-law, uncle, great-uncle, cousin and friend to many.

Harry was an avid Cardinals fan, and enjoyed hunting, and fishing with his “Columbia shirt-wearing” family and friends. He enjoyed  woodworking and keeping his tools and workbench exceptionally well organized. Harry’s sense of humor sustained throughout his final days. He always put others first and his steadfast faith in God is an inspiration to us all.
