Milburn Andrew Seabolt

March 10, 2019

Milburn Andrew Seabolt, called Andy by family and friends, was the youngest of seven children born to Reva (née Jones) and Milburn E. Seabolt. After losing his father at four years old, he was raised by his mom and his stepfather, Richard Hahn. From his earliest years Andy was marked a generosity to family and friends and a deep love for his country. He met the love of his life, Saori Sasaki while stationed in Yokosuka, Japan. They married March 12, 1995. Andy always loved children and doted on his many nieces and nephews. Although Saori and Andy have no children, Andy served as a father figure for many young adults during his 20 year military career in the Navy. Helping them to rise in rank, pass tests, achieve awards and grow into mature citizens in many countries all over the world and in multiple U.S. locations. Andy was especially noted for helping young men develop positive attitudes toward their duties and achieve success through positive life choices, he was a man who led by example. His military career was outstanding and without fault. While stationed in San Diego after losing his brother Mike, Andy became acutely aware of God’s realness and presence during an evening service at his church. He struggled to show himself approved of God the rest of his life. Finally resting in the fact only God could save him, he couldn’t save himself.

After retiring he worked for the federal government as a Federal Special Agent until his death on March 6, 2019. He gained leadership skills through a natural ability to articulate ideas and concepts and a life long love of learning, reading and adult education. He was an avid history master of the civil war, WWII, and the life of Winston Churchill among other subjects. He earned his BA while working full time. Above all Andy loved his family and always wanted to be there for them. We are proud he was our husband, son, brother, and uncle.

He was proceeded in death by his mother, Reva Hahn; his brothers Thomas, Dewey, and Michael; and his nephew, Benjamin Bedel.

Survivors are his wife, Saori Seabolt; father, Richard Hahn; sisters, Mary Barnard and Jackie Bedel; brother, Steven Seabolt; brother-in-law, Kousei Sasaki; his nephews, Amos Seabolt, Yancy Seabolt Schaf, Wesley Barnard, Kakeru Sasaki; and nieces, Hinata Sasaki, Jennifer Johnson, Cary Fuller, Erin Mayes, and Maria Barnard.
