David Ray Seabaugh, 69, passed away on September 12, 2020 at his home in Friedheim from continued complication related to a cystectomy.
He was born on April 21, 1951 in Cape Girardeau, son of Guy and Dorothy Seabaugh. He and his high school sweetheart and wife of 48 years, Donna Wibbenmeyer Seabaugh, were united in marriage on May 13, 1972 at St. Maurus Catholic Church in Biehle.
David was a 1969 graduate of Oak Ridge High School. He joined the Missouri Army National Guard and served 6 years with the 1140th Engineer Battalion out of Jackson.
