Eric Scott Seevers

I lost one of the brightest stars in my universe on Tuesday morning. Even though we were often at odds due to our inherited stubborn nature, I never stopped loving and supporting him, even remotely at times. I was so proud of him and his accomplishments. My world has changed forever.

Eric Scott Seevers left this earth on October 18, 2022. He was born on February 13, 1977, the youngest son of Lewis D. and Kathy S. Seevers of Parkersburg, WV.

He attended Emerson Elementary, Van Devender Jr. High School, and Parkersburg High School where he was good at skipping class and getting into trouble. His love of learning came later. It was in college that he discovered a love of music after attending a Kiss concert with his sister Christie and her friend Brenda, and decided to learn to play the guitar. He turned out to be a natural and went on to form and play in several local heavy metal bands, Loaded, Liecus and Social 66 for example. He then played bass in an 80s cover band and guitar in a Kiss tribute band (complete with stage makeup and costumes). He kicked while doing it.

Despite being a former multi-talented songwriter/musician; he would then become a financial adviser for Mass Mutual. It was during his time at Mass Mutual that he discovered another passion; become a pilot. He worked hard and studied even harder to pass all the requirements to become a Citation CE500 Captain. He even bought an airplane and started a flight school; giving lessons from Wood County Airport to share his love of flying.

He told his kids they could do whatever they wanted and he was living proof of that. Eric was a real rock star to the people who knew and loved him. He gave his all in everything he did, be it a rocker, financial advisor, pilot, father/son/brother/husband or friend.

He will be forever missed by his wife Francella Quesada Castro; his son Tucker Stephens (Selena); his two daughters Cadence A. (Trenton) and Kambria L. Seevers, all of Parkersburg; his paternal grandmother Thelma J. Seevers of Vienna; his sister Christie Seevers of Parkersburg; his brother Kyle Seevers (Loretta) of Valdosta, GA; his niece Alex Seevers of Valdosta, GA; his nephew Michael Seevers (Jasmine) of Fort Stewart, Hinesville, GA; four great-nephews in Georgia; and grandson Michael Dowler of Parkersburg.

There will be no funeral service, but a celebration of life for friends and family will be held at a later date. The Leavitt Funeral Home of Parkersburg is helping the family arrange the cremation.
