JOHN GREGORY SEANEY
John Gregory Seaney, age 72, passed away on Thursday, February 18, 2021 from complications due to Covid-19. He was born on March 5, 1948 in Kewanee, Illinois.
He was adopted at 10 days old by John Richard and Barbara Jene Seaney of Peoria, Illinois. There he met the love of his life and soulmate, Diane Durbin. The two were married on August 17, 1968.
He worked for Caterpillar Tractor Company until the family relocated to Bullhead City, Arizona in 1985. Shortly thereafter, he was hired by Mohave Electric Cooperative where he worked until his retirement in 2013.
Friends and family will remember Greg for his quick wit and hilarious sense of humor. There was always laughter when he was around, and he wasn't afraid to make himself the butt of a joke in order to get a laugh out of you. It wasn't always comedy and pranks with him though. He was a teacher, advice giver, hard worker, amazing hugger, and a man people could look up to.
He is survived by his wife, Diane of 52 years; five children, Jeff (Jill) Seaney, Rachel (George) Brown, Monica (Jeremy) Davis, Nick (Juliana) Seaney, and Emily Seaney; as well as their eleven grandchildren, Jackson, Ashlyn, and Blake Seaney, Deidre Sumner, Alyssa Brown, Dalton Brown, Ethan Chavez, Brianna Collins, Jeremiah Fritts, Genevieve and Cecilia Davis; and one great-grandchild, Landon Morgan, - and a great-grandaughter on the way.
His memory will live on in those that were
fortunate enough to have known and loved him.
Due to Covid restrictions a private service was previously held for the family.
