Obituary of Ted Seaborn

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ted on December 16, 2020 at the age of 78 at West Park Crossing with his family by his side. Predeceased by (Mom) Marion Seaborn, (Dad) Trevor Seaborn, (Mother-in-law) Bernie Benjamin, (Father-in-law) Herman Benjamin, (Daughter) Carolyn, (Sister-in-Law) Laurette Benjamin, (Brother-in-Law) Raymond Benjamin. Ted is survived by his wife of 53 years Alice; Daughter Sandy (Mark), Son Barry (Aftyn); Grandchildren Riley, Nylah and Chase, whom he cherished; Sister Joan (Beattie) Hugg and family. After high school in Moose Jaw, work took Ted to cities across Saskatchewan, North Battleford, Weyburn, Shaunavon, and Swift Current where he worked for The Bank of Nova Scotia and Woolworths. In 1967, Ted married the love of his life Alice. The family moved back to Moose Jaw in 1970 to take over Seaborn Agencies a family business owned by his Dad Trevor Seaborn. Ted loved the challenge of the industry and being the people person he was, he loved his clients. It was a yearly ritual for him to deliver calendars to his clients and have a visit. He also enjoyed calling a lot of his clients on their birthday to wish them well! After retirement Ted continued his daily walk to the bank, this could be lengthy for Ted as he visited with anyone and everyone along the way whether he knew them or not. Ted was a gifted musician playing the piano and keyboard with many different bands over the years and loved every minute of it. He also enjoyed jamming with other musicians forming many lasting friendships. His last performance on stage was at Ted and Alice’s 50th Wedding Anniversary when the band asked him to join them for a few songs. The sound of his music will be dearly missed at our family gatherings. Ted’s other favourite past times included walking in Wakamow with ‘The Grumpy old Men’ crew and then heading to A & W for coffee. He loved to golf every chance he got, but especially in Palm Springs, until his shoulders would no longer co-operate. He had a true passion for cars, especially cruising in his 1963 Studebaker Hawk. Despite all the health challenges Ted faced, his sense of humour never waivered. He fought every battle with determination right until the end. We would like to thank the Staff at West Park Crossing for their love and kindness over the last few years. If we could all learn a lesson from Ted it would be, “Be kind to everyone you meet”. We could all use this right now in these difficult times. A celebration of Ted’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ted’s name may be made to your favourite local charity. In living memory of Ted, a memorial planting will be made by Jones-Parkview Funeral Services.
