April 24, 1946 — Sept. 5, 2013
Robert Seed passed away on Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013, in the presence of his loving wife, Kathy and daughter, Shannon. He fought a valiant and brave fight for the past three years of the cancer called multiple myeloma. He was full of life and was always the center of fun and good times with family and friends. He was one of the most honest and caring men that ever walked the planet. He was loved by many and will be missed by many.
Bob was a hard worker with great work ethic. He retired from SMUD 12 years ago after a very long (more than 30 years) career with SMUD as an electrician in the Hydro division in the Crystal Basin. He loved his retirement. He loved riding his motorcycles — especially when he had the opportunity to ride with friends and his brother. He loved to dance and music was in his soul. He could not keep still if he heard some good music. His daughter always called him her “Boogie Dad,” because he could sure boogie.
Bob is survived by his wife, Kathy Seed; daughter, Shannon Seed Hardwicke (Chris); step-sons, Josh (Maria), Ben (Whitney) and Matt Lichty; six beautiful grandchildren; brother, James Seed (Tammy); niece, Melanie Seed; and two nephews. He was so proud of his kids and grandkids that he always talked with great pride about all of their accomplishments.
Per Bob’s request no services will be held. A celebration of his life will be held Sept. 29, from 1 to 5 p.m., at Holly’s Hill Winery in Pleasant Valley.
