The Brighton Blade
November 07, 2018
George John Seader III, of Aurora, at age 69 was taken home by our Lord Jesus Oct. 2 after a fulfilled life and courageous seven-year battle with cancer.
Following graduation from Brighton High School in 1967, George enlisted in the United States Air Force, retiring at the rank of senior master sergeant.
During his 22 ½-year decorated military career, he served in Vietnam and earned many honors, including Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with Valor Device, 4 Oak Leaf Cluster and Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross and Palm.
George was a kind soul, loyal friend to many and a loving father, with whom he shared his hobbies and pleasures in life. George enjoyed shooting his gun collection and making ammunition, restoring cars and motorcycles, fishing, and celebrating accomplishments with a glass of Gentleman Jack whiskey.
He married the love of his life, Wendy Seader, in June 1999. She was his rock and his most fierce support in life. George was her best friend, who she affectionately referred to as her "Passion Prince – Sweet of Sweets."
He was a jack of all trades and mastered them all. George loved telling knee-slapping stories and jokes, bringing all those around him joy. He adored cooking for his family and was infamous for his beer pancakes, Spanish rice, and crepes.
Survivors are his wife; a son, Adam Seader; a daughter, Amber Seader; his father, George John Seader Jr.; a sister, Sandra Seader; eight grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family would prefer donations be made to the University of Colorado Jimeno Cancer Research.
