William Sentelle

October 18, 1972 ~ May 27, 2023 (age 50)


William Eugene Sentelle, IV (Billy), 50, transitioned peacefully to his heavenly home after an extended illness on Saturday, May 27, 2023.  His last days were spent in Cone-Alamance Regional Hospital with his parents at his side.  Billy was born October 18, 1972 to William Eugene Sentelle, III and Martha Jane Brock Sentelle in Charlotte NC. 

Billy graduated from Madison-Mayodan High School and finished two years of instruction at Rockingham Community College.  He was a man of many skills: a General Manager of Ham’s Restaurant, a roofer, an electrician, a residential painter and even doing a little bit of carpentry.  He was a devoted family man, friend, and fan of all things Clemson.  Much of his energy was spent doing acts of kindness to help those in need.  He will be sorely missed by the many who loved him.

Billy was preceded in death by his infant sister, Melissa Jane, his maternal grandparents Winford and Aileen Springfield Brock, his paternal grandparents, William E. Jr. and Florella Alexander Sentelle, his brother-in-law Sanford Stewart, his aunt and Uncle Betty Sentelle Anderson and Bramlett Anderson.

Those left to cherish his memory are his sister Lori Sentelle Stewart, his sister Amelia Sentelle Scala and her husband Steve Scala, his brother Brock Alexander Sentelle, his niece Savannah Amelia Scala, his nephew Stephen Michael Scala, Jr., his uncle Robert S. Brock, his aunt Joni D. Brock, his cousins David Anderson, Susan Anderson, Brian Brock, Nikki Tremann, Lauren Scoggins, Michael Brock, and special friend Peter Placentino and many beloved friends. 

Billy’s life will be celebrated during a private family service and some of his ashes will be scattered at sea in a family ceremony as he wished.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any memorials be directed to the Barry L. Joyce Local Cancer Support Fund, 725 Ayersville Rd. Madison, NC 27025 or to Madison United Methodist Men’s Peanut Ministry, 110 West Academy St. Madison NC  27025.
