Dow Scott Seegmiller died unexpectedly after a short illness on May 21, 2013 in San Diego, California. Born August 30, 1946 in Cedar City, Utah, Dow graduated from Cedar City High School and the University of Utah. He earned his B.A. in anthropology and later, his ESL certification from UCLA. As a Peace Corps volunteer, Dow lived for several years in Thailand and returned often throughout his life. A world traveler, Dow lived and worked in many countries across the globe, particularly in Southeast Asia. He was a cultural communications trainer familiar with several languages and fluent in Thai. Openhearted and generous, Dow was a gifted linguist and teacher. Dow's former Peace Corps friend traveling in Thailand last year mentioned Peace Corps to the Thai guide. 40 years later, the guide remembered "Anjan Dow" as his best teacher. Dow was a loving friend, brother and uncle who always came home from his travels with gifts like silk pillows and elephant ties, batiks and gold-dipped orchids. He will be deeply missed by all whose lives he touched. Dow was preceded in death by his parents, Gail and Evelyn Seegmiller, and his brother, Don Kent Seegmiller. He is survived by sisters, Diana Hirschi (Rand) Susan Goodman (Gary); nieces, Heather Hirschi and RiAnn Hadlock; and nephews, Lincoln Hirschi, Scott, Tyrel, Michael and Steven Goodman; and twelve grand-nieces and nephews.
