Mr. Severt was a member of Calvary Free Will Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon and Trustee for many faithful years. He started and ran his own Heating & Air Conditioning business for the past 49 years and was thankful to be able to pass the business on to his grandson, Josh who has followed him around most of his life. He spent many days and nights making sure everyone stayed warm regardless of the ability to pay. He truly enjoyed giving more than receiving and will be missed by all who knew him. Pallbearers are those he considered his dear friends in life: Sterling Carroll, Casey Carroll, Jim Jordan, Don Hart, Randy Miller, Dean Taylor and Buck Davis.
