Earlier today, Shannon Seaton (35) passed away apparently after performing some yard work. Details are still unclear, but apparently Seaton had been working in the yard and suffered some kind of event that led to his passing.
He leaves behind a wife and two children as well as his other family members. He also leaves the East Texas theater community in mourning. Seaton was the theater teacher/director at Mineola High School and was also active at the Lake Country Playhouse. He had a hand in many things throughout our town and will be missed terribly by many.
Those who knew Shannon Seaton will remember his calm, quiet demeanor and his perpetual smile among the many other positive qualities he possessed.
Healing thoughts and prayers for his family are encouraged.
Services have been announced.
Visitation is Friday, July 19 from 6-8 PM at Beaty Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held Saturday morning (7-20) at First United Methodist Church in Mineola at 10 AM. Internment will be at Roselawn Memorial Gardens in Mineola.
