Thomas Frank Seal
1953 ~ 2013
Thomas Seal passed away unexpectedly on September 10, 2013 while enjoying one of his favorite pastimes in the Wasatch Mountains.
Thomas was born on December 24, 1953 to Carol Grace Callicott and Frank Lowe Seal. He made a big first impression weighing in at 13 1/2 pounds, continuing from that day on being larger than life in every aspect, leading others by his example and energy. As a youth he enjoyed singing and music, which continued through his life. He was the drum major for his school band, leading and ensuring that everyone stayed on beat. Graduating from Brigham Young University with a degree in computer science, he quickly began influencing the translation field with technology and business savvy. Work endeavors took him all over the world making many friends and influencing many people. However, his greatest accomplishments occurred in his adult years. He took the role of family patriarch very seriously and fulfilled that calling with tireless energy. He married his eternal soul mate Beverly on Feb. 25th, 1982 and sealed in the Jordan River Temple Dec. 28th, 1988. He continually set an example by showing love and concern for her well being and happiness. His 4 children and 22 grandchildren are the light of his life. Keenly aware of the needs of his children and grandchildren, he frequently sacrificed time to help, support, spoil, and love them. We will miss him dearly. We will forever enjoy and remember him as our husband, father, dad, grandfather, brother, and friend.
Thomas is preceded in passing by his father, Frank Lowe Seal, and his mother Carol Grace Callicott Seal.
He is survived by his wife, Beverly E. Seal; 4 children: Liz Oliphant (David), Brandon Burt (Misti), Kimberly Shupe (Erik), Richard Seal (Julie), and 22 grandchildren; brothers, Gregory Seal (Suzanne), David Seal (Julie); sister, Maureen Gold (Spencer).
The Seal Brothers Trio lost their "Bass." Thank you for your wonderful life.
