Brett J. Sexton of Doylestown died suddenly Monday July 15, 2013 at Cape Regional Medical Center in Cape May Court House, NJ. He was 43.

Brett was the beloved husband of Allyson Davies Sexton for 13 years.

Born in Philadelphia, he was the cherished son of Frank J. and Dottie Anne Dunphy Sexton of New Hope.

Brett was raised in Holland and was a former communicant of St. Bede the Venerable Church, where he played on the CYO soccer, basketball and baseball teams. He was a graduate of Council Rock High School, class of 1988. Brett received his undergraduate degree from The College of New Jersey (Trenton State University) and his Master’s in Business Administration from LaSalle University.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Brett was an Executive officer for Sommer Maid Creamery of Doylestown for the past 20 years. He was active in the community, especially supporting his children in their activities.

He enjoyed playing golf and was a member of Doylestown Country Club and presently a parishioner of Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Doylestown.

He will be sadly missed by his loving and caring family and many friends, being remembered for his quick wit and his exceptional business skills.

In addition to his wife and parents, Brett is survived by his devoted children, Andrew, James, Rebecca and Mallory, his sisters: Renee Sexton, Nicole Curran, Colette Craven and her husband Kevin, his brother Grant Sexton and his wife Marissa, his father-in-law Alexander Davies, Allyson’s grandparents, Leslie and Anne Hardie Davies, and Allyson’s sister Kimberley Leahy and her husband William.

I think I can speak for the entire staff at Sommer Maid Creamery when I say that we are shocked and saddened beyond belief at Brett's passing. He was such a presence in the office, strong, intelligent, quick-witted and a great businessman. He will be missed by all of us. My sincerest condolences to Allyson and their children, as well as Frank and Dottie Anne Sexton, Renee, Nicole, Colette and Grant.

Was shocked when I heard the news as everyone else was too. My thoughts and well wishes go out to the Sexton clan including Mr. Frank Sexton, Mrs. Sexton, Grant, Colette, Nicole, Allyson, Andrew. I worked at Sommer Maid so knew Brett and Mr. Sexton. Graduated w/Grant from C.R. although he wouldn't remember me. Seems like just yesterday that little Andrew and my little Leanne were playing together as toddlers in the office. Mr. Sexton, I miss your smiles and seeing u in the white lab coats. Brett was truly a fine businessman and so accomplished. You and Dottie raised a very smart individual! It will get easier with time. Said goodbye to my youngest brother at J. Fleuhr III not too long ago. God bless and take care. Karen
