(Walsh) Seamann. He grew up on a farm near Spalding and during the Great Depression the family moved to Kit Carson, Colorado. In the early 1940’s the family returned to Spalding where he graduated from Spalding Academy High School in 1950. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from Feb. 1953 to Jan. 1955. He then returned to the Spalding area and started a dairy operation. He was united in marriage to Mona Charlotte “Char” Pogue on Sept. 21, 1959, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Greeley. They first lived on the place they later bought east of Greeley. In 1970, they purchased a ranch north of Greeley where they lived the rest of their married life. Char died Oct. 20, 2016, and Ed continued to live on the ranch the rest of his life. He and Char were very active in the Greeley Service Club that sponsored the Greeley Days Rodeo from its inception. They were also members of the Loup Valley Rodeo Club for many years and helped with the Ericson 4th of July Kid’s Rodeo. Ed was widely known as an expert on bits, spurs and his extensive tac collection. Over the years he offered many young men guidance in horse riding and roping. Ed was interested in history and of course, his horses. He is survived by his children and spouses, John and Stena Seamann of Dunbar, Wally and Ruth Seamann of Atkinson, Emily and Tim Birnie of Minden, Marty and Carol Seamann of Ericson and Rosanna and Christopher Connelly of Panama; 29 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren; sisters, Peggy and Matt Mathews of Hastings, Rose Marie Hensley of Littleton, CO and Kathy and Bob Mailander of Arizona; and brothers, Ron Seamann of Missouri and Bill and Laura Seamann of Alda. In addition to his wife, Char, he was preceded in death by his parents; son, Jim Seaman; infant granddaughter, Jordyn Birnie; brother-in-law, Bill Hensley; and sister-in-law, Betty Seamann.

When I think of Ed, I think of two words (besides Appaloosa) and they are humble and kind. Wish we could attend services but due to sickness we cant. God Bless! Matt & Mary Glesinger

My sincerest sympathies to the Seaman family. Ed and I are the last survivors(I think) of the original "Rodeo Committee" here in Greeley. Ed was a Cowboy through and through, as he said Herefords were his business, Horses were his weakness. May he rest in peace. Chuck Sweeney.
