Jeral Lee Sebastian

Mr. Jeral Lee Sebastian, age 75 of McGrady passed away Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at his home. 

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date. 

Mr. Sebastian was born February 22, 1945 in Wilkes County to Dwight Absher and Annie Ruth Owens Sebastian.  He was a member of Pine View Baptist Church. 

Jeral began his career at Wilkes Welding and Machine Company at the young age of 14 helping his father after school and on Saturdays.  He continued with his career at Wilkes Welding for 54 years.  His knowledge and skill in the machine shop industry was known throughout Wilkes and surrounding counties.  He was also known for his knowledge of old Chevrolets, particularly 55 Chevrolets, and Winchester guns.  He also enjoyed working on his farm and taking care of his cattle.  His farm truck was easily recognizable by the spare tire mounted on the roof.  He was one of a kind and will certainly be missed. 

He was preceded in death by his parents. 

He is survived by his wife; Doris Combs Sebastian of the home, a daughter; Myra McGlamery and husband Phillip of Purlear, stepson; Ty Worley and wife Karen of McGrady, granddaughter; Madison McGlamery and step-grandson; T.J. Worley and Jeral’s long time friend and buddy; Jim Beamon.
