Robert W. Seib, husband, father, grandfather, brother, and great- grandfather, went to be with his creator on Thursday, the 29th of October at 11:30 a.m. at St. Mary’s Hospital in Evansville, Indiana. When Robert went hand in hand with God he was surrounded by his wife, Betty Ann, and all his loving children while stories of his life were shared over his bedside as his final breath was taken. Robert loved to spend time with his family and had many interests. He was a Knights of Columbus and Knights of St. John member, an IU and Colts fan, a diehard Clabber player, and a devoutly religious Catholic. He loved to keep his yard and garden in pristine manner and loved his roses. His laughter and joking will be missed.
He was preceded in death by his parents Henry and Rosa Seib, son Terrence Seib, and brother Henry Seib.
