Lyle Walter Seeband

Sacramento, CA

In Loving Memory

   Lyle Walter Seeband, aged 87, passed away in Sacramento, CA. On January 17, 2024 due to complications from diabetes.

   He was a beloved brother, uncle and friend.

   Lyle was born on February 17th, 1936 to Marie and George Seeband in Sacramento where he spent his formative years. He graduated from C.K. McClatchy High School, class of ‘54. Lyle went on to Sac. City College, UC Berkeley and ultimately received a degree from Sacramento State University.

   Drafted into the U.S. Army in 1958, he served active duty in Okinawa, Japan until 1960. Once discharged, Lyles military service continued for an additional 30 years in the U.S. Army National Guard, Reserves, 91st inf. div. and the 59th Army Band.

   Throughout his career he was known for his hard work, dedication and passion for helping others.

   Lyles desire to help others is exemplified by his decades-long goal of reaching 200 pints of blood donated, a goal he proudly reached. (That’s 25 gallons!)

   Though he had jobs in his teenage years as a gas station attendant and as a dairy farmhand, his career really began in 1963 when he became a deputy probation officer for Sacramento County. He held this position for 34 years until he retired in 1997.

   Lyle was married to Barbara Biggers from 1978 to 1985.

   From the age of 15 to 21 Lyle was an active member of the DeMolay International Organization and rose to the office of Master Counselor.

   Lyle was also a member of the Sacramento Bag Pipe Band and a master bag piper in his own right, though he probably wouldn’t have said so. Over the years Lyle participated in many Piping and Drumming competitions at the Scottish Games throughout the region.

   Lyle was a natural born entertainer who was always on the lookout for something or someone to celebrate, a “life-of-the-party” kind of guy that very much enjoyed putting a smile on others’ faces through music.

   Lyle is survived by his younger brother Gary, his nephew Simon, life-long friends the Borland family and extended family.

   He will be fondly remembered by all who knew him.
