Obituary

Robert "Bob" Seaver, age 80, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away peacefully on August 30th, in hospice care with his family by his side. Bob is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Elizabeth Horwitz; his children, Kim Seaver (John Mehnert), Eric (Gwen) Seaver, and Kristen Seaver; and his grandchildren Jared and Alyssa Mehnert and Annika, Julia, and Ella Seaver. He is preceded in death by his parents Lois and Russell Seaver and his sister Phyllis Miller. Bob grew up on a dairy farm in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, and was the first family member to attend a four-year college. He graduated from Tufts University in 1958, served in the United States Marine Corps, and graduated from University of Chicago Law School in 1963. After private law practice as a business lawyer with Taft, Stettinius & Hollister and general counsel for a corporation that included handling arbitrations in India, Bob was a devoted professor of law for more than 20 years at Salmon P. Chase Law School, Northern Kentucky University and published an authoritative book on Ohio Corporate Law. Bob enjoyed spending time with family, traveling extensively, and researching family genealogy. He also played duplicate bridge and earned the “Life Master” designation. He found peace and beauty listening to classical music and going to the Cincinnati Nature Center. He had a special heart for rescuing cats and loved all animals but as most anyone who knew him well realized, he hated the New York Yankees, the post office, banks, and stupid drivers (doesn't everyone?). Visitation will be held on Sunday, September 3, 2017 from 12:00 noon until the funeral service begins at 1:00 pm at the Spring Grove Funeral Home (4389 Spring Grove Ave, 45223). Private Burial will take place at Spring Grove Cemetery. Memorial donations in Bob's memory can be made to the Cincinnati Nature Center or Hospice of Cincinnati.

    We were so sorry to read of Bob's passing. Although we didn't know him well he always waved as he exited the driveway in his little sports car. We also learned that he shared with us the feeding of Tux the feral cat a couple years ago. I often wonder if he has been a foster parent to any of the cats we have had over the years. Condolences and prayers to Elizabeth and the rest of the family.

    Bob, we missed you at Chase when you retired and now even more that you have passed. You were succeeded but never replaced.

    We know this is a very difficult time for you loosing a precious loved one and we are sorry for your loss. Even when we do all we can, we are unable to prevent "time and unexpected events". May God's "promise of the resurrection" and the reuniting with your loved one bring you comfort. And "throw all your anxieties on God because he cares for you ". Ecclesiastes 9:11 John 5:28,29 1 Peter 5:7 Sincerely, Diane and Family https://www.jw.org/finder?wtlocale=E&pub=we&srcid=share

    Bob was a valued member of the Faculty of Chase College of Law. I was privileged to know him during many of those years. Bob was possessed of a keen mind. He was forthright in sharing his opinions.. He was missed by his colleagues and his students when he retired. He will be missed by all who knew him.

    I greatly value my experiences with and memories of Professor Seaver. When I was struggling with his corporations course, I once spent two hours with him in his office going over material. He was very patient and answered all my questions. While he made it clear he was master of his subject, he was never condescending. He treated you like a human being. He figured if you couldn't learn it, you wouldn't be in law school. Bob Seaver definitely raised the bar in legal education.
