Scott Ward Seaman

Scott Ward Seaman, longtime resident of Forks WA, born May 5, 1950, in Leavenworth WA, passed away from long-term illness on Saturday, January 28, 2023, in Shoreline WA.

He was married to Linda White of Wenatchee in 1974 and in 1982 they welcomed their daughter Megan. Their marriage was amicably dissolved in 2000 and they kept in contact through his end of life. He was preceded in death by his father Merton Dale Seaman, mother Barbara Helen Seaman and eldest brother Rocky Seaman. He is survived by his daughter, older brother Tim and younger sister Laurie and their extended family members.

Scott had an inexplicable love of math which he turned into a long career of teaching. He was a graduate of Central Washington University. His first teaching job started in the small town of Wilson Creek before moving onto Forks where he would dedicate the rest of his career.

Even after retiring in 2004 he continued to tutor at the local community college branch in Forks. Dad was dedicated to a life in community service beyond just teaching. In his youth he started as a Scout and would later participate in DeMolay. He loved drama, in Wilson Creek he was an advisor.

In Forks, he was a voice of Spartan radio— many many long road trips spent with his cohort Don Ice to provide commentary for the folks back home. He loved to devote time to emcee the scholarship auction. He also spent time volunteering at the Forks Visitor’s Center. But his greatest joy was years of coaching volleyball.

Dad was a very active person, which is why his Multiple Sclerosis diagnoses brought much sadness to his life. He loved to golf, play tennis, swim, play fast pitch and umpire. He was quite the man about town on his scooter and bright fluorescent gear— he loved to be on the go.

The family asks that if you would like to donate in his memory then to please direct donations to the Quillayute Valley School District (the scholarship program most specifically) and the Ray Ellis Ambulance Corps. Due to Scott’s preferences, the family will be holding a small memorial in Kirby Billingsley Park in East Wenatchee on July 8, 2023, 1:00 PM-3:00 PM.
