Gary Lee Seevers

March 22, 1937December 2, 2018

Gary Lee Seevers, age 81, passed away on December 2, 2018. An avid THE Ohio State University football fan, his death was well-timed to fall after a win but before the news of Urban Meyer’s retirement.

Gary was born March 22, 1937, in East Liverpool, Ohio, to Homer and Helen (Gillis) Seevers.

He enjoyed traveling the world with his wife and best friend of 52 years, Bonnie Marie Kutchko Seevers. She and their two daughters were the center of his life. He was an amazing man who touched so many, not by grand gestures, but through his simple kindness, like waiting for the garbage man each Wednesday so that he could give him a glass of water.

Gary is survived by his wife, Bonnie; his daughters, Heather and Kara; his son-in-law, Chris; his four siblings and their spouses; and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Homer and Helen.

A private celebration of life will be held in New Mexico at a later date.

My favorite memories of Coach Seevers are how he made basketball fun and how silly he could be. One night while giving me a ride home from practice, he kept stopping on the creepy bridges leading out to my house. Kara and I were squealing and laughing at the same time. He was always present and living life to the fullest with a wonderful smile. He will be missed but has definitely left his mark.
