Thomas F. Seefeld
Thomas F. Seefeld, “Moose” died suddenly on September 7, 2020 at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg, MS. “Moose” (so known by all) was born in Jackson, MS on March 26, 1945 to the late Herman W Seefeld,II and Bessie E. Seefeld. “Moose” grew up in Laurel, MS where his father was the Administrator for the Laurel Medical Center and his mother was a nurse anesthetist at the South Central Regional Medical Center. Moose was a member of the first graduating class of R.H. Watkins High School and a member of the football team that secured the State Championship. His athletic abilities lead to a football scholarship to the University of Southern Mississippi where he met his wife, Dana Mae Austin, while both were securing their degrees there. “Moose” and Dana married on December 22, 1967 in her hometown of Princeton, WV. They resided in Laurel, MS for five years then settled in Hattiesburg, MS. Moose’s business degree prepared him for his sales in both insurance and building materials. He finished his career with the Contractor Yard in Hattiesburg, MS. During retirement, he and Dana enjoyed online sales.
Moose was an avid sportsman enjoying fishing, tennis and golf. His background in football made him an enthusiastic football fan. In his leisure time he enjoyed playing card games of all types, including bridge, with a wide circle of friends. He and his wife were multi-talented in all types of home improvement. Moose was always available to assist others.
Moose is survived by his wife of 52 years, Dana A.
