Steven Eugene Seals was born on April 29, 1955, and passed away on Friday, Jan. 17, 2020, at the age of 64.

Steve’s life may not have been long but it was full. He was able to travel the world in his younger years as a Sailor in the U.S. Navy, and was a proud Vietnam veteran. He worked hard and loved his family fiercely. He enjoyed telling stories, playing his guitar and singing, spending time with his grandsons, and cooking breakfast.

Steve is survived by his grandsons, Nathan Seals, Matthew Starns, Dalton Pujol and Brayden Seals; his children, Amanda Starns (Stevin Starns), Anna-Ruth Seals and Steven Elmer Seals; his companion, Cheryl Holland; his brother, Doug Seals; and a niece, Maggie Seals.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Peggy and Eugene Seals; and grandparents, Anna and Elmer Slade, and Pearlie and Dan Seals.

Relatives and friends of the family were invited to attend the Funeral Services on Monday, Jan. 20, at 2 p.m. at Poole-Ritchie Funeral Home, located at 216 Alabama Ave. in Bogalusa. The visitation began at 11 a.m. and continued until the service at 2 p.m. Burial followed in the Veterans Cemetery in Ponemah Cemetery. The Rev. Chad Jenkins officiated the services. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Gary Sinise Foundation or to Monroe Street Baptist Church.
