John “Bud” Seaman, 85, of Urbana passed away at Brookdale Assisted Living in Urbana on July 5, 2019. Bud was born on January 21, 1934 in Hindsboro, Illinois to Ione and Firth Seaman. They preceded him in death. Also preceding him in death were his first wife, Donna Seaman in 2000, and his three sisters, Joanne, Helen, and Marlene.
He is survived by his second wife, Marjorie Seaman; children, Lisa (Ronald Tenney) Reed-Seago of Panama City, Florida and Mark Buddy (Leslie) Seaman of Urbana; three grandchildren, Sean Reed, Dustin Buddy Seaman, and Jarod McPherson, whom is currently deployed in the Air Force in the Middle East; two great-grandchildren, Tyler Reed and Griffin Buddy Seaman; and his brother Ferrell “Bus” Seaman of Effingham.
He is also survived by three step-children, Jill Runck, Tracy Koller, and Todd Corray; five step-grandchildren; and six step-great-grandchildren.
Bud was a handyman and a jack of all trades. He was affectionately known as a MacGyver as there was hardly anything he could not fix. He loved to work in his machine shed with his companion, Wiggles, and he also enjoyed boating. He retired from Operating Engineers and was well recognized from his own sanitation business. Bud proudly served his country in the United States Navy. He was a member of Webber Street Christian Church.
A funeral service will be held in Bud’s honor on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 3:00 in the afternoon at Morgan Memorial Home in Savoy. Pastor Sam Stow will officiate. A visitation will be held prior to the funeral service from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m., also at the funeral home. He will be laid to rest next to Donna at Prairieview Cemetery in Champaign. Memorial contributions can be made in Bud’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, Illinois Chapter at 8430 W. Bryn Mawr, Suite 800 in Chicago, IL 60631 or at
