Jeffrey Lynn Sewell, 62, of Olathe, Kansas, passed away on Monday, August 29, 2022. He was born on August 12, 1960 in Hugoton, Kansas to Franklin and Patricia (Burrows) Sewell.

Jeff LOVED sports. He participated in them & watched them everyday. When he was younger, Jeff was a US para athlete and he traveled the world competing. He won numerous medals and awards. He was a huge Ulysses Tigers fan, an Oklahoma Sooners fan, and a Houston Texans fan.
Jeff was a people person. He was very easy to talk to about anything and looked forward to getting to know anyone better. Jeff enjoyed spending time with family and friends. If you were a friend of his, you became family. Family meant the world to him.
Jeff will be remembered for his love of music, reading, Life Savers, tea, Scotch & popcicles. His annoying voicemail greeting will never be forgotten. Those close to him will fondly remember the silly nicknames he gave.
