We grew up in the same neighborhood way back in elementary and Jr. High. Years later we ran into each other in Los Angeles at TGIF. We met eyes and after all those years instantly recognized each other. We had a great conversation, catching up and remembering everyone. It was good to see him doing well at that time. He was a smile with a person attached and was a fun friend to hang around with. Rest well brother rest!

Uncle Seba.
I love and respected that man. Even though I was only able to see him on occasion, I definitely looked forward every time. Although, like we all have our trials and error unc had his share as well in dealings with substance abuse. Most of which I was Personally unaware of because he never wore it. Whenever I saw unc I didn't se e a man struggling with addiction outside of tobacco. I only saw, knew, and will remember Him as the strong successful black man he became in my eyes.

As I read the memories of friends and family. I agree you truly were a gentleman and a scholar. You are my brother, we're family. I've known you all my life. Living next door, we shared many memories. We went to high school together "Thunderbolts". I watched you march after school, ROTC. You were always there to listen & to give comfort.

🎶 "Natural High" 🎶 by Bloodstone reminded me of you.

It was a pleasure and an honor to know you. Rest in Peace my brother.

I met Seba and Sam on 33rd and Race st in Denver Colorado the Summer of 1976 I had just moved into what people said was the Tuffist hood in Denver. What a lie! Seba took me under his Big wings taught me how to stand up and Deal with some of the worst types of Brothers in the hood! At Manual high school he got me into the Drum and bugle corps and ROTC and more in one Year he was a senior I was a sophomore. THANK YOU SEBA for all you did for me, What a BIG GUY with a Bigger HEART THUNDERBOLTS LOST A GOOD ONE .GOD BLESS YOU AND HOLD YOUR FAMILY IN BLESSING.

Seba was always s gentleman. I'm a fellow recovering person & he drove us down to Atlanta, Georgia for a CA Convention a very long time ago. . He had a vehicle filled with people who wanted to go but didn't have the means. I was one of those people, never forgot the kind act!
