Obituary for Rodney Dean Seegers

Worthington, MN

Rodney Dean Seegers, age 67, was born on May 14, 1949, in Ocheyedan, IA, the son of Calvin and Stella (Mortenson) Seegers. He spent his childhood in Worthington, MN. After graduating from Worthington High School, he went into the Army and was in the Green Beret 7th Special Forces as a helicopter crew chief until his honorable discharge in July of 1972. After returning from the service, his first civilian job was at Great Plains Gas. Rodney then went to work for John Fauskee, and under his employment there, he attended Mankato Area Vocational Technical Institute and got his Plumbers/Steamfitters Apprenticeship. From the knowledge gained under John, he went onto getting his Master’s Plumbers license and started his own business, Rod’s Plumbing.
Rod married his true love Jolinn Van Der Wal on May 8, 1981, at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington. They spent their lives together in Worthington raising their daughters, Julie and Crystal.
Rod’s favorite hobby was fishing and flying his model airplanes. His true enjoyment came from the time he spent with his daughters and grandsons. If they needed a babysitter he was always available. Every night he enjoyed his drive around Lake Okabena before settling in for the night. On the weekends Jolinn introduced Rod to garage sales looking for those great bargains. Little did Jolinn know what kind of addiction Rod would acquire for all those great bargains. Rod passed away on Monday, July 11, 2016, at his residence in Worthington, MN.
Left to cherish Rod’s memory are his wife, Jolinn of Worthington, MN; his children, Julie Seegers and her son Hudson, and Crystal Seegers and her sons Owen and Acen. He also leaves behind many in-laws, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Calvin and Stella (Mortenson) Seegers, father-in-law, Andrew Van Der Wal, and his baby sister.
Memorial services will be held on Thursday, August 4, 2016, at 6:00 p.m., at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington, MN, with Pastor Mark Schreiber officiating. Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 4, 2016, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
