Mr. Seeds and his wife, Sally, enjoyed spending winters in Siesta Key, Fl. Many wonderful, memories were created there with his family.

Just after his deep love for his family, was his love for The Ohio State University. He was a member of the President's Club and the Buckeye Club. As a loyal supporter of Ohio State football, he attended every home football game since 1974. He endowed two scholarships to Ohio State, one academic and one football scholarship.
