31 July, 1943 – 10 February, 2021
On February 10, 2021 Larry Franklin Seever took Christ’s hand and walked through the Gates of Glory. He was happily greeted by his parents John and Janet (Kasten) Seever and his grandson Tyler Seever. Larry was born in Atchison, Kansas as the eldest of three children, Mary Hunter (Bradenton, FL) and Jerry Seever (Kansas City, MO). He grew up spending his childhood around his family, Grandma Seever and Grandma Kasten. The Seever family would gather for nearly every Sunday to eat, laugh and share in Atchison.
Larry graduated High School from North Kansas City in 1962. He is a veteran of the US Army as his father was, who served in WW II, European theater. Larry joined in 1962 and was stationed in Korea in optics. He was in the motorized band, a trained medic and spent leave time in Japan, which he loved. After his discharge from the United States Army, Larry went on to become an entrepreneur and business owner until he retired in 2010, years following an Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis.
Larry married Mary Woods in 1965 and were blessed with three children Jeffery (Grain Valley, MO), Patrick (Kansas City, MO) and Amy Mooney (Des Moines, IA).
Larry later married Geraldine ‘Geri’ Seithers in 1975 and they were blessed with two daughters, Monica Ford (Jupiter, FL) and Natalie Carron (Palm Beach Gardens, FL).
Larry was greatly blessed with ten grandchildren and five great grandchildren.
Larry loved life, dancing, cooking, hunting, fishing and golfing. His children have followed in his footsteps, enjoying his hobbies and passions, and most importantly, share his strong faith and love in the Lord. His spirit, advice, and love has been missing for several years due to Alzheimer’s Disease, which stole his mind, yet his spirit lives in his wife, Geri and five children, who carry on.
A private memorial service with military honors will take place at 4:00 PM on Friday, February 26, 2021 at Aycock-Riverside Funeral Home in Jupiter, FL. Pastor David Dangerfield of St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church will officiate. Services will be streamed for those who are unable to attend in person.
The family will take visitors on Friday, February 26, 2021 from 1:00 – 4:00 pm at Aycock-Riverside in Jupiter, FL.

I miss your smile, your chuckle, and your Witty comebacks! Your thirst for adventure grows strong in me. To be a leader in all fields including my faith was your passion. You have taught me to be brave, face adversity, to hold my head high, always. I am at peace knowing you are with our Lord and Savior. Dance like nobody is watching in the gates of Heaven. For now and evermore.........I love you Daddy........

Larry was always my big brother. I knew he was there for me growing up. Have many memories of Larry and the boys having fun with our boys. Loved traveling with him to to see family in SD. I listen to him preach and read the bible all the way there and home.
Larry rest in peace, I will miss your smile.

Geri and family, the memories I have of "mama" Geri working at IGP and Larry coming in to take her to lunch, or stop by to visit us, will always be with me. Larry was always so kind to me, and kept us laughing. I am sorry these last years were so difficult for all of you, and I pray that Larry is in peace now and having fond memories of all of you. So much love and prayers to each and everyone of you. Natalie and Monica, you have been such amazing daughters to your parents - I know they are proud of you. I never had the pleasure of meeting your brothers, but Mama Geri always spoke lovingly of them and their families!

Ever since I can remember, I loved my brother Larry. I loved his crazy sense of humor, his love for music, his love for people, his love for life and his love for the Lord. When growing up, he would always be there for me regardless of the silly mistakes I would make along the way. He was a lot like his grandmother Kasten and his mother, Janet . They all loved to play cards and play practical jokes. Unfortunately, as we aged our lives sort of grew apart because of distance. But every once in awhile, he would surprise me and show up suddenly just like he did in Tucson, AZ in 1995. He was a great dreamer too, which made sense because of the brilliant ideas he came up with to make a living and to help others. Also, there was not a selfish bone in his body. If you needed something, he would go out of his way to help you. I especially loved that part about him. One of my favorite memories that I have about Larry is that he was bold and fearless to speak to both our mother Janet and to our Aunt Audrey Robbins about Jesus just before they both passed away . I realized later, that Larry was truly gifted with being able to talk to people about anything. That was what made him a such great salesman. Today, I am convinced that Larry is walking and talking with Jesus and having a great discussion and making plans of how things could work better in heaven. Now there will always be an empty spot in my heart that only Larry could fill. However, I know that he will be one of the first people that welcome me home when I finally get to heaven. I love you man. Thank you for all the really good times we spent together, in Atchison, KS, Effingham, KS, Kansas City, MO, Chicago, IL, Ann Arbor, MI, Tucson, AZ, Custer SD, West Palm Beach, FL, and a very strange moment in Miami, FL. We had an amazing journey together. Larry, I will see you soon. I look forward to playing another 18 holes of golf with you when we get together again. With love always, your brother, Jerry!!
