- February 10, 2020

James “Jim” Jay Seward, 80, Spearfish, SD, passed away peacefully on February 7, 2020, at his home after his final battle with cancer.

Jim was born to Kathryn (Walker) Seward and Elmer Seward in Mankato, MN on January 27, 1940. Jim graduated from Minnesota Lake High School and thereafter served in the United States Air Force. During his military service he met his life-long love, Sally Ann Brimmer (formerly of Hot Springs, SD) and they married in 1962 in Denver, CO. The couple soon located in Spearfish where Jim worked as a mechanic for Junek Brothers. He soon had his own business and later continued his public service commitment as Mayor of Spearfish (1976-1981) and then Lawrence County Commissioner (1997-2008). Jim’s love for model trains and snowmobiling was only surpassed by his love for his time with his grandchildren.

Jim is survived by his wife Sally of nearly 57 years, his three children (Kim Maskell and husband Mark of Selma, NC (grandchildren Andrew, wife Amanda, Michaela, husband Kale, Kelsey and Michael); Jim and wife Leslie, Cheyenne, WY (grandchildren Jimmy, Max, and by marriage, Berkeley and Elouise); Ric and wife Tina, Leonardville, KS (granddaughter, Kathryn), his sister Karen Goracke and husband Denny of Spearfish, and many beloved nieces and nephews. Jim was preceded in death by his mother Kathryn Walker Seward Krosch, his father Elmer Seward, his sweet little girl Staci Jane and his brother Doug (Greenfield, MN).

Jim donated his body to the medical school at the University of South Dakota.

A celebration of a life well lived will be held at 10:00am on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at Mountain View Baptist Church in Spearfish. A memorial has been established for the Spearfish Veteran’s Memorial.
