James 'Jim' Seaberg

Classmate, Friend, and Brother

James 'Jim' Seaberg, 34, Rapid City, died Thursday, Jan. 18, 1996 at Black Hills Retirement Center.  Survivors included his parents, John and Ann Seaberg, Rapid City: three brothers, John Seaberg, Indianapolis, Ind., David Seaberg, Rapid City, and Matthew Seaberg, Sheridan, Wyo.; and five sisters, Ruth Pelaccia, Rapid City, Becky Goehring, Colorado Springs, Colo., Loretta Robinson, Scottsdale, Ariz., Priscilla Sanchez, Okinawa, Japan, and Deanna Cameron, Mesa, Ariz. 

The following pictures and words of thought were shared with us from Jimmy's sister, Priscilla.


Our brother:
He was a very caring, quick-witted person.  Jim loved gardening, was a great cook, and had the best sense of humor.  If he told me he was going to help me with something, you knew he would be there.  He loved our mother endlessly, and I had always envisioned him being the one to care for her when she was older and needed it.  Unfortunately, Jim was taken too soon.  Our whole family misses Jimmy dearly. 

The picture of the quilt was done by quilters in Rapid City.  They named the quilt "Jim's Window" since he had such a green thumb.

Thank you, Cobblers, for remembering Jimmy... have a great reunion!

Jimmy was my neighbor down the street
from grade school on. I can remember when
they moved to our block. Their family
was HUGE!Lots of girls! He was a very quiet,
nice and sensitive person. I still remember
the day we made a snowman together in the grade
school years and then he gave me a ring! It was
a huge CZ!I didn't know how to respond and we
had a hard time communicating after that.
I think I succumbed to the pressure of his
sisters because of course, they thought he was dumb.
I regret that I never kept contact with him
in high school but regardless I was very sad
when I saw his obituary in the newspaper.
I do remember you Jimmy and I pray that you are
living it up with the Lord! No more pain,
no more sorrow!

God Bless
