Bob was born February 24, 1924 in Berwyn, Oklahoma to Fred and Fern (Randolph) Seward. He passed away Saturday, Jan. 11, 2020 in Sulphur, at the age of 95 years, 10 months and 17 days.

Bob had lived in the Sulphur area most of his life, graduating from Sulphur High School. After high school, he entered the U.S. Air Force in 1943 where he flew a total of 32 missions over Germany during WWII. After his military service, Bob and Helen L. Goodman were married in Oklahoma City, on April 11, 1946. Bob then worked as a butcher at Jack’s Foods in Sulphur and later worked as a highway inspector for the State of Oklahoma Public Transportation Department until his retirement. Bob was a member of the First Free Will Baptist Church where he served as deacon and superintendent of Sunday School for 56 years. He was a very quiet man, but will be remembered by his friends and church family by his Sunday School morning hugs. Bob was a man of many talents and could fix anything.
