David M. Seevers, age 69, with family by his side, lost his courageous battle with COPD and went to be with the Lord on Saturday, August 29, 2015 at 4:20 a.m. Dave was born on September 22, 1945, in Columbus, Ohio, but was raised in Sunbury, Ohio. Dave graduated from Big Walnut High School in 1963. He attended Tri-State University but was a Buckeye at heart. Dave was an engineer by profession. He designed, developed and built many things throughout his life; he ultimately retired from Vaisala-Artais Division in 2005. Throughout his life he was an avid outdoorsman who had a deep passion for fishing and hunting with family and friends. The many adventures have provided his friends and family with special memories. He was a proud son, husband, brother, father, and grandfather. Dave is preceded in death by his father and mother, Ray and Francis Seevers; his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Ray and Ona Jahn; and his beloved loyal beagle, PJ . He is survived by his wife, Betty; sons, John (Lynn) Seevers, Gregg (Autumn Yost) Seevers and Mark (Kristy) Seevers; grandchildren, Max, Jake, Ben, Logan, Haley, Laney, and Aubrey; brother, Stan (Davidia) Seevers; sister, Karen (George) Hunsaker; his favorite squirrel chasing dachshund, Lily, and numerous in-laws, nephews and nieces. Dave and his family would like to thank the many doctors, nurses and therapist at St. Ann’s Hospital; especially those associated with the Palliative Care Unit and Hospice who focused on his comfort during the last few days of his life. Friends may call at the MORELAND FUNERAL HOME, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, Ohio Friday, September 4th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., followed by a service at 1 p.m., Pastor Dick Wooten, officiating.

My wife and I would like to extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to Dave’s family. I also worked with Dave, he was a special spirit. Possibly gruff on the outside, but he cared deeply for his family and we talked often about how proud he was of his sons. He was always available to help engineer a new solution to a problem and always followed through until a project was complete. You could always count on Dave for guidance. He will be missed, he and I last worked together on a project in Colorado in 2006. To quote a friend of both of ours when informed of Dave passing, “I feel privileged to have known him, may his memory be a blessing.”

I am sorry to hear about Dave’s passing. I worked with Dave for many years at Artais and Vaisala. He taught me many things about civil and electrical engineering from a practical perspective. He was a great team member at the company and was always willing to help anyone in need.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
Geoff Bing
