Sellers, who is a native of Johnston County, started in the funeral service in 1977 and most recently worked as general manager in Pittsboro with Hall-Wynne Funeral Services.
“We’re pleased to have Sellers join us. He has more than 38 years in the business,” said Carlisle.
“Being from a small community, I look forward to getting to know the families here in the area and them getting to know me. My wife is a Bertie County native so the opportunity to move back to Eastern North Carolina to be closer to family has been favorable,” Sellers said.
Hockaday Funeral and Cremation Service has been serving the community since 1956.
“Hockaday is an established business here in the Roanoke Valley with a stellar reputation in the not only in the funeral service industry but also the community. The families I’ve served so far have been welcoming and appreciative of what we do,” Sellers added.
“Jay and I have been friends since the 1980s. It’s a pleasure to work with him again.
We both worked in Winston Salem together. I look forward to becoming involved in the community and being able to serve those who need us whenever that time may be.”
