In addition to his parents and 12 siblings, he was predeceased by his children Brent, Brian, Jane, Gary, Valerie and Darren. Also a grandson J.J. 

He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Shirley. His children Craig and Sally Seavey; Linda and Elmer Bailey; Patricia and James Mullen; and Carol Smith. His brother, Pike Seavey and two sisters Helen Sinko and Eleanor Jean Bonner. Many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren all of whom he dearly loved.

Family and friends meant so much to him. He so enjoyed the years the family all camped at Clifford Lake. Fishing, boating, his 4 wheeler and sitting around telling jokes by the campfire. Let's not forget the fire crackers as he loved getting a jump out of us all. 

He was well liked and respected by all who knew him. He will be sadly missed. 

A remembrance service will be announced at a later date.
