John Thomas Sease, Sr,, 77 years old of Monetta, SC went home to be with his Lord and Savior September 23, 2020. 
John was very loving, compassionate, cared about others and loved his Lord who gifted him with many talents, among those being
carpentry, mechanic and appliance repair. Besides his love  for the Lord, he loved family and friends which included Gene Swygert
who was more like a brother and Miller Jacobs who was alwaysencouraging and lifting him up during some very difficult times. He loved
fishing, especially with his son and daughter-in-law, Johnny and Patty.  He was an avid South Carolina Gamecock fan and on 
Saturdays he could be found in the stands at Williams Brice Stadium or at home sitting on the edge of his seat with eyes glued to the television cheering on his Gamecocks!   
Born May 8, 1943 to Terrell Franklin Sease and Lella Marcelia Thomas Sease Fincher near Francis Marion College in Florence, he grew
up in Irmo, SC.  He married Doris Ann Turner on December 6, 1964.   John is survived by his wife, Doris;  sons John Thomas Sease, Jr 
and wife Patty;  Terrell Franklin Sease and his wife Daleen;   daughters Darlene Sease Greene and husband Dennis;  Anita Sease Bland
and husband William; Peggy Sue  Sease Stapleton and husband Scott; sisters Lorene Sease Mills, Tami Sease Redding and 
Phyllis Sease Rogers.  
John was predeceased by his son Timothy Allen Sease, his great granddaughter Pheonix Allen, both parents,  brothers Karl Sease, Julian Sease, Terrell Lee Sease and Robert Sease; 
sisters Frances Sease Yelton, Louise Sease Odom, Eleanor Sease Walters and Alma Sease Hall.  John has numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews who have their own stories about "Uncle John"  and how much they love him and what he has meant to them in their lives.
Visitation will take place Sunday, September 27, 2020 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm at New Hope Baptist Church, 249 New Hope Road, Pelion.  Funeral will also be at the church from 2:30pm-4:00 pm.. Burial will be at Dust to Dust Cemetery, 205 Nulty Crossing, Swansea.

We are so sorry we have not been able to be there for you in person during this time due to Covid risks. Please know our hearts are there for you.

I will never forget when he picked you up for your first date... we were in the dining room and the lighting was not very bright... his blonde hair looked grey and Mama and Daddy were concerned about how old he was but he soon became a special part of our family!

We are forever grateful for the hard work John and Karl (supervised by Willy) did in 2002 to build our deck and ramp when Billy broke his hip. Everyone who visited was impressed with how well built and sturdy it was. I also appreciated when he cleaned the only catfish I ever caught so I could make some catfish stew!

John will forever be missed.

Dear Doris: John and I went to school together at Irmo and graduated from Irmo High
in 1962. I have always enjoyed seeing you and John at class reunions and other events (mostly Rush's in Lexington) over the years. John suffered alot during the last
years but he is at peace now. Please know you and your extended family are in our
thoughts and prayers.

Sending prayers and love to Doris, John's wife and to his family and friends. I loved that smile John always had for everyone. It is hard to let go of someone you love so much, but know that he is out of pain and with God, so he is happy. I would have attended the service if I was able to, it breaks my heart that I couldn't go. Know that I was there in spirit and have been keeping Doris and John in my heart and prayers.
