Herbert James Seegers was a man with love in excess. He was a father, brother, husband, grandfather, friend, and much more to many people during his time. An engineer, a veteran (United States Air Force), an athlete (Masters Swimmer), and handy to a fault, Jim Seegers was an honest man, wearing his opinion of things on his sleeve. He allowed everyone to take his word as something of value, and of truth. If he felt strongly about something, he would say so, and this was how his family knew that he loved and cared for them as much as he did. Generous and supportive, Jim will be remembered by his family and friends for the joy he gave us simply by being a man that cared for his family and community.

Visitation will be held at Brust Funeral Home, Lombard Illinois on Thursday October 5th from 5 – 9 pm. Funeral mass will be at St. Joseph’s Church in Downers Grove on Friday October 6th at 10 am with inurnment at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, Elwood Illinois at 1:00 pm.
