William "Billy" J. Sevigney

June 25, 1953 ~ January 6, 2022 (age 68)


William J. “Billy” Sevigney, 68, lifelong resident of Wells, passed away at his childhood and current home January 6, 2022 with his wife Kelley and daughter Jenna by his side.

Billy was born June 25, 1953, son of William and Shirley (Leighton) Sevigney and a 1971 graduate of Wells High School where he was in the chess club and played hours of cribbage.  Billy worked at General Dynamics in Saco as a gunner #1 specialist test firing guns and was just shy of 50 years!

 Billy was a huge presence in so many lives. He had many friends in different circles. In 1982, he married the love of his life, Kelley Coleman.  They were two peas in a pod, and best friends with a love like no other.  They completed each other and where there was one, there was always the other and the most important thing to him was having fun and living life to the fullest. They had their only child, Jenna in 1984. Billy adored Jenna and they had a special bond with many common interests like old John Wayne movies, the Three Stooges, and hours of listening to music. He loved attending concerts, camping, skiing, going to dirt bike races, weekend excursions, and plenty of vacations. Loved his Harley and riding on weekends, bike week in Daytona, Sturgis, Key West and dozens more. When not traveling, Billy enjoyed spending as much time with friends and family as the hours would allow. Whether it be lighting up the room at Mike’s and Stutsey’s, playing Golf, or kicking back smoking a cigar and sipping on Jack in the garage, he simply loved life itself and thought of it as an adventure every day.  He had an enormous sense of humor, heart of gold and an infectious booming laugh. He had no idea of the impact he made on so many lives.  He was an avid Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, Bruins and all-around sports fan.

When Kelley asked, “So what’s on your bucket list?”  Billy replied, “I’ve been living my bucket list for 40 years with you honey.” A life gone too soon and a man who will never be forgotten.

Billy was predeceased by his parents, in-laws, Lewis and Isabelle Coleman; brothers, Ricky and David Sevigney and sister-in-law, Nancy Coleman.  He will forever be loved by his wife of 40 years, Kelley (Coleman) Sevigney and their daughter Jenna of Wells; nephew David (Nicki) Sevigney and Lexus (Ellery) Gordon; brothers and sisters in law; Allayne (Ron) Maillet, Kerri (Ed) Van Schaack, Michael (Ruth) Coleman, Joel Coleman, Tony (Debbie) Coleman, Chris (Donna) Coleman, Patrick (Kim) Coleman; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews and so many amazing friends.

A party in honor of Billy’s life will be held on Saturday, January 15th, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Mike’s Clam Shack in Wells with a toast of Jack in his honor.  Memorial contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island, #300, Topsham, ME  04086.
