Mr. Seaoat passed on June 16th with my daughter and myself by his side. He was declining the last two months rapidly and tried to access the discussion group, but was not able to concentrate or type. He wanted me to post his passing. We talked about the discussions and all of you, and how much he enjoyed the banter.
Here is some background about my man. Eagle scout, master's degree, law degree, and the greatest husband and father ever. Yes, he factory work, inventory control, he did have a Bobcat, campground, and ideas that exhausted me. Always a goal. He devoted his life to help youth athletics in the park district and local school district. Seaoat was always there to help a friend, family, or client in need. I remember his effort through the blogs to get the baseball park in Pensacola. He once visited the park and talked with someone, who remember "Seaoat" from his posts. He housed 27 people from Biloxi for two months in a rental unit we had in Navarre after Hurricane Katrina.
He did receive the PRRT treatment, which gave him another year of life, but there was not much quality after the last treatment in December. He still pushed on with his motorized scooter to visit the casino and especially watch his oldest granddaughter prove to be a darn good basketball player. He loved his four grandchildren so much and they were the focus of his life.
I know you all will miss him. I will try to check in, and may be mess with you as he did. Love, Judy(Mrs. Seaoat)
