Colonel Raymond A. Seaman

July 26, 1933 ~ February 11, 2019 (age 85)

Raymond (Ray) Seaman, 85, a resident of Kaysville, Utah, passed away
peacefully on February 11, 2019. Ray was born on July 26, 1933, in Guys Mills,
Pennsylvania. He was the eldest son of William and Ruth (Luzier) Seaman. Ray
was a brilliant and ambitious young man who grew up in a farming community,
studied electronics as a hobby, and pursued a love of flying with his favorite cousin
Howard Graham who owned a private airplane. Ray graduated number one in his
class, with a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering, from the
Pennsylvania State University. He entered the U.S. Air Force through the Aviation
Cadet program and served our country valiantly in a number of different combat
aircraft types. He married Janice Seaman, and together they had two children,
Calvin and Sherri; and Ray was always very proud of their accomplishments. Ray
and Janice were later divorced, and after he retired from the Air Force, he worked
for the Unisys Corporation in Salt Lake City, Utah as a Program Manager. There,
he met Geraldine (Jerry) and they were married in June 1990. Ray and Jerry
thoroughly enjoyed retirement while traveling in their RVs, and exploring Lake
Powell in their boat the “J. L. Seagull.” Later, they spent winters in Arizona, and
summers in Utah enjoying gardening and family activities. Ray was always very
supportive and willing to serve as Grandfather and Great-Grandfather to all of
Jerry’s extended family. He will be sorely missed as the most kind, generous,
loving husband and father. A memorial service for Ray will be held at a later date.
