John Howard “Bud” Seabaugh, 88, of Evansville, passed away Sunday, Oct. 25, 2015, at St. Mary’s Medical Center.

He was born May 24, 1927, in Wayne County, Missouri, to Harry and Clara (Parsons) Seabaugh.

He retired from Sigeco after 39 years as a repairman and was a member of VFW Post 1114. He was a U.S. Army veteran stationed in Japan right after they surrendered following WWII. He enjoyed sports, especially watching the St. Louis Cardinals, and loved listening to music. He was a quiet man, but when he did say something, it was often funny.

Howard was preceded in death by his parents; son, Charles H. Seabaugh; sisters, Geneva Lanman and E. Christine Miller; and nephew, Patrick Schaefer.

He is survived by his sisters, Betty McDermott and Shirley Schaefer; nieces and nephews, Dick (Becky) Roberson, Ben (Mary) Lanman, Kathy (Mike) Bussiere, Karen Cox, Sandy (Dan) King, Belinda Oberle, Brenda (Jim) Jost, Frank (Laura), John, Mark (Darlene), and Dan Schaefer, Rosanna (David) Evans, Pete (Brandie) Schaefer, Janie Solomon, Bobbi (Tom) Debes, and Adam (Stephanie) Schaefer; and 41 great-nieces and nephews.

Friends may visit Thursday from 9 a.m. until service time at the funeral home.
