Body

John F. Sills Jr., 63, of Yulee, passed away Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, at the Warner Center for Caring. 

John was born in Fernandina Beach and was the son of the late John F. and Sylvia Black Sills. 

He worked as a welder and had worked for the last 15 years for PBM Construction. John enjoyed fishing and continued to fish as long as his health allowed. A member of Moose Lodge #2352, John volunteered there and had a good time helping around the lodge whenever he could.

Among his favorite pastimes was spending time on his CB radio, which was sometimes referred to as the “Redneck Internet.” Every afternoon, John could be found taking the family dog, Leona, to the boat ramp near his home on the golf cart. 

In addition to his parents, John was predeceased by his son, Nathan, in 2007. 

He leaves behind his wife of 39, years, Angela McCall Sills; two sisters, Tina McKendree, and her husband, Daniel, and Sabrina Gregory, and her husband, Jimmy, all of Yulee; and an extended family of several cousins. 

The family will receive friends at Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors from 11 a.m.-noon Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021. A graveside funeral service will be held that same day at 1 p.m. at Hughes Cemetery in Yulee. The Rev. Frank Camarotti will officiate.
