Tom Seabury is best known as a loving father, creative electrical engineer and community member for over 40 years in the Danville/Diablo area. A fourth generation Californian, Tom was born in Oakland and lived for most of his childhood in Sacramento. He attended both UC Berkeley and the University of Nevada, Reno. He started his career in the defense industry working in Santa Barbara where he met his wife of over 43 years, Roberta Seabury. They were married in Solvang in 1963 and moved to the Danville Area two years later, where they raised their family of three children. Tom started several traffic control companies and worked in the traffic industry for over 50 years. He just retired from Diablo Controls this past year.

Tom was active in the Danville community, serving on the San Ramon Valley Fire Board for over 15 years. He also served as Boy Scout troop 236 Scout Master and spent countless hours working for the Danville Junior Horsemen's Association. Tom was also an active Ham Radio operator involved in several emergency communications organizations where he is known by his call sign- KI6O.Tom is known by many for his passion in restoring old vehicles including a Model A Ford and a 1945 Van Pelt Fire Truck seen in many Danville Fourth of July parades.
Tom moved to Nevada City in 2009 and enjoyed a second life in the beautiful Gold Country- a favorite place of his. He enjoyed the numerous festivities and attended the local music collective, the Fruit Jar Pickers, every Sunday to enjoy their fantastic sing-alongs.

He passed away after a short battle with Alzheimer's. He is survived by his son, David Seabury of Walnut Creek and his daughters Annette Seabury of Brentwood and Liz Seabury-Utic of Fairfax, CA. Tom's creative spirit, sense of humor and love of California history, Dixieland Jazz music and his cat, Hazel, will be remembered by those who loved him. We will miss you, dad.

A celebration of Tom's life will be held for his friends and family at the Black Diamond Mines picnic grounds on Saturday August 6th at 10 a.m.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Kindred at Home Hospice are appreciated.
