Charles Gordon Seagrave Age 61, passed away in June 2017 due to complications following a cardiac event. Charles was born in New Mexico in an environment that fostered his life-long love of science, engineering, and music. He earned a bachelor's degree and later a master's degree in scientific instrumentation. A creative inventor, he received an award for one invention and designed many other fun and useful devices that were not patented. Music was a very important part of his life, and he participated in many choirs and ensembles both as a singer and director. He loved all things nautical and was most at peace on the water. He was a man of great patience, extraordinary sensitivity, remarkable curiosity, and a powerful drive to understand just about everything. He also had an exceptional sense of humor. Charles was preceded in death by his parents, and is survived by his wife, daughter, granddaughter, and his sister, who will all miss him enormously. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider a donation to organizations that support music education or medical research. A celebration of life service will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Marin in August.
