Life Story for Max "Rip" Sewell

Max "Rip"  Sewell
On April 3, 2017 Max Floyd "Rip" Sewell returned to his heavenly father. Rip was born January 1, 1928, in Idaho Falls, Idaho, to Mr. and Mrs. Perry Sewell. He enjoyed his early years in Teton Valley learning to fish and play baseball, and all of the other outdoor pursuits.

After graduating from Teton High School in 1946, Rip volunteered for the army in the transportation corps, where he was a clerk for a Summary Court Officer. After the army, Rip enrolled in school at Brigham Young University, where he majored in physical education and graduated in 1952. After two years in the army and four years in college, he headed to Sun Valley where he would enjoy his favorite pastime, skiing. He loved to ski. It was here that he met his future wife, Mary Jo Hamilton, and they were married October 1, 1955 in Omaha, Nebraska.

Rip was preceded in death by his wife Mary Jo. He is survived by seven children and six grandchildren: Tracy Rowe (Carl) and daughter Claire Everson, of Boise; Jeff Sewell, of Hailey; Bridget Kapala (Rick) of Hailey; Zach (Lori) Sewell and daughter, Angela Burrell (Brian), grand daughters Avery and Shane of Hailey; Andy Sewell (Diane) and sons William and Joshua, of Viola, Idaho; Shannon Moss (Tom) of Hailey; Nick Sewell (Tammy) and daughters Danielle and Jacqueline, of Pullman, Washington. Rip is survived by his siblings, Mary (Lloyd-deceased) Platzke of Bellevue, Washington; Sharon Jackson (Jay) of Salt Lake, Utah, Gene (Sonja) Sewell of Rexburg, Idaho; Grant “Sam” Sewell (Darla) of Driggs, Idaho; and Ralph Sewell, of Driggs, Idaho.


Rip was a past president of the Ketchum/ Sun Valley Rotary club, past president of the Sawtooth Board of Realtors, and he owned Warm Springs Realty on Sun Valley Road for 26 years. He was a longtime member of The Valley Club and enjoyed playing golf. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sun Valley, and was the chorister of the small choir. Rip loved all kinds of music. He loved the Wood River Valley, the blue skies, the clean air and the friendly people. He will truly be missed.

Services will be at 1:00 pm, Monday, April 10th at the Sun Valley LDS Church
