Walter Eugene “Gene” Seaman
December 9, 1931 – September 16, 2020
Gene Seaman was born on December 9, 1931 in Doland, SD and died September 16, 2020 in Papillion, NE at the age of 88. He graduated from Omaha North High School in 1949 then began working at Omaha National Bank as a mail boy in 1949. Then while serving the US Army Reserves in the Finance Division, he discovered a love of finance and continued his financial career with Omaha National Bank until 1974.
He played basketball and softball in the employee league while working at the bank. Later he played softball for First Christian Church in the Omaha recreational league. He enjoyed bowling on various men’s leagues around town. He also had a passion for golf.
While working at the bank he began studying for his real estate license in preparation for his new career as a realtor. He worked for CBS Real Estate and HOME Real Estate for almost 40 years. Because Gene was such a people person, he most certainly loved real estate more than finance.
Gene is survived by son, Jeff Seaman of Omaha, NE; daughter, Nancy Wilson of Savannah, GA; and one sister, Janet Seaman of Palm Springs, CA. He was preceded in death by parents, Walter and Bernice Seaman; and wife, JoAnne.
