Obituary for Rev. Quentin Curtis Sewell

Rev. Quentin Curtis  Sewell
ASHLAND: Rev. Quentin Curtis Sewell, 89, of Ashland, passed away suddenly Tuesday January 31, 2017. Born in Framingham on January 12, 1928, he was the son of the late Chester Sewell and Elsie (Dinsmore) Sewell, and brother of the late Philip D. Sewell. He graduated Framingham High School in 1945, Providence Bible Institute in 1948, Wheaton College (IL) in 1951 with a B.A. Political Science, Northern Baptist Seminary, Chicago in 1958 with an MDiv, and Boston University in 1965 with an EdM. He worked his way through schools at a variety of construction and factory jobs.

Quentin enjoyed family, history, travel, politics, religion, and aviation. He was active as a private pilot from 1975 to 2005, logging monthly piloting hours for 365 consecutive months. He was both a clergyman and a teacher. He was ordained as an American Baptist minister under validation by the Chicago Baptist Association, June 1, 1958. Prior to ordination, he had served pastorates in Mariaville and Otis Maine, in 1947 at 19 years of age, Edwards Church, Framingham from 1953-1955, and East Hazelcrest (IL) Community Church from 1956-1958. After ordination, He served the First Baptist Church of East Moline, Illinois from 1958-1960, at which time he was called to be the first pastor of the Valley View Baptist Church of Cedar Falls, Iowa, where he guided them through the construction of their church building, dedicated in 1964.

From Iowa, he entered Boston University School of Education, earning an EdM in 1965. He taught Social Studies at Lexington (MA) High School for one year, followed by 23 years in Framingham Public Schools from where he retired in 1989. Through his years of teaching, he also served as a part-time interim pastor for 15 different Baptist and UCC churches in Eastern Massachusetts. In 1973 he studied the politics, cultures, religions and history of India under a summer of New York University seminars in New Delhi, Madras, and Bombay (Mumbai).

Following his retirement in 1989, he was employed extensively in two part time jobs: one, as an "On Site Coordinator" for World Strides, a tour company that brings thousands of students to Washington and other East Coast cities; two, as a supervisor and administrator of "The Nation's Report Card," an educational assessment program of the U.S. Department of Education. For this program he worked different years in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Maryland, Virginia, D.C., New York and New England.

Quentin is survived by his wife of 65 years, Joann Marie (Loos) Sewell of Ashland. He also leaves his son and daughter-in-law, Mark Sewell and Gayle M. Shattuck of Lexington; his daughter and son-in-law, Dr. Jeanette Sewell and Peter Putnam of Natick; his son, Craig Sewell of Waterboro, Maine; his grandsons Brian Sewell, Derek Sewell, and Quentin Putnam. He is also survived by his sister-in-law Constance (Levine) Sewell of Framingham; and by several cousins, nephews and nieces.

Visiting hours are Monday February 6, 2017 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Boyle Bros. Funeral Home, 173 Union Ave., Framingham. A funeral service will be held Tuesday February 7th at 11:00am in the First Baptist Church, 1013 Worcester Rd., (parking entrance at 48 Pleasant St., Rte. 30) Framingham.
