God’s newest Angel, William Dean Sewill, came into the world weighing 2 pounds 10 ounces and measuring 15 inches long. He was born to Nathaniel Kenneth Sewill and Breanna Elizabeth Hartl-Sewill of Moorhead, MN on Sunday evening, March 5, 2023, at Sanford Medical Center, Fargo, ND, and went to his Heavenly Home early Monday morning, March 6th.

Sewill of Moorhead; as well as, other relatives. He will also be mourned by the many family friends he didn’t have a chance to meet.
