Seaba, Stanley Herbert


Stan loved the farm

Stanley Herbert Seaba was born in Castor, Alberta on July 18, 1929 to Earl and Jean Seaba.

Stan was raised and lived his entire life on the Seaba farm, south of Castor.  His early years were spent working on the farm and playing ball.

He graduated from Sullivan Lake School then continued in his ancestors footsteps as a farmer and rancher.

Stan married Karen Reuteman in 1968 and together they had one son, Earl, born in 1976.

Stan loved the farm, the cows, dogs, cats, flowers, birds and the garden.

He was an avid auction sale participant and travelled many miles with his good friend Patricia to bring home all kinds of treasures; particularly tables, lamps and all kinds of tin cans.

The pride and joy of Stan’s life was his granddaughter Taylor born in 2003.  She always brought a sparkle to his eye.

Stan passed away on Jan.12, 2015 in Castor at the age of 85 years.  Stan was predeceased by his parents Earl and Jean and wife Karen.

He is survived by his son Earl, daughter-in-law Tamara, granddaughter Taylor, special friend Patricia Andrews and many friends and neighbours.
