Mark Seier

Mark David Seier, 60, Thornton, CO and formerly of Minot died on Saturday, January 26, 2013 in his home with his loving family at his side.

Mark was born on February 14, 1952 in Chicago, IL to Charles and Vivian (Hagen) Seier.  He moved with his family to Minot in 1954 where he was raised and educated and graduated from Minot High School in 1970.

He started working for the Burlington Northern Railroad (now Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad) in 1970.  His career began in the track department before he was transferred to the operating department in 1972 where he remained until his retirement 40 years later in 2012.

Mark married Phyllis Roneker on April 14, 1980 in Minot.  They had made their home in Minot prior to Mark’s retirement when they moved to Thornton CO in June of 2012 to be near their grandson Tucker.

Mark was a member of the United Transportation Union his entire career.  He loved all things golf…. playing, watching it on tv, reading books and magazines about golf.  Also, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, bowling.  He was proud of his huge vegetable garden and the most well manicured lawn in the county.  He was an excellent cook and did all the cooking in the 32 years he was married.  In addition he loved the mountains and Disney/Pixar movies, but his greatest joy was his precious grandson Tucker.

Mark’s loving family includes his wife of 32 years Phyllis - 3880 East 128th Way - Thornton CO 80241; children:  Emily Seier (Daniel Seelbinder) of Thornton CO and Benjamin Seier of Minot; grandson: Tucker Seelbinder of Thornton CO; mother: Vivian Seier of Minot; brothers:  Jeff Seier and John (Julie) Seier both of Minot; niece and nephews:  Andrew, Katie and Lucas Seier and several cousins.

Message Mark was a great friend that I was lucky enough to live by while growing up. My wife is the only person that has walked more miles by my side than Mark. Being in the same grade and living only a block apart meant that we went to the same school. We lived by Jim Hill and walked together to Washington Elementary from the 3rd grade through the 6th grade. We walked downtown to Minot High for three years together. Numerous other times we walked together to Roosevelt Park, the Empire and Oak Park Theatres, Chateau Lanes, the Town and Country shopping center or just to the store to get baseball cards. We walked a lot of miles together talking about things that kids do while growing up. It went from talking about baseball players to talking about girls. Mark was a good athlete and all the major sports came easy to him. The sport that I think he was best at was bowling. We got discount bowling booklets from Chateau Lanes when we were in junior high. We used to go up there every Saturday and after playing the Kings and Queens pinball machine we would bowl a couple of games. Mark had a lot of spin and break when he bowled. I can still hear the pop when he released the ball. It would look like a gutter ball half way down the alley and then it would break right into the pocket. Mark was just a natural bowler. We had many good times together that give me memories that I will always cherish. I want the whole Seier family to know that I am so sorry for your loss.

MessagePhyllis, Ben, Emily and Family,

I am SO SORRY for your loss. Mark was still a young man.

I've sent Mark's obituary to my Bel Air list and will be sending it to my Brudwick list; many of those in the Brudwick list know Vivian.

I think I've told you my nephew, Oliver Kofoid, learned to know Mark and John (I'm not sure about Jeff.) when they stayed with Buddy Hagen. Ollie happened to be in Bottineau, staying with my mom and dad, at the same time John/Mark were at Long Lake. Buddy was one of my nephew's favorite people and would be sure he visited Buddy whenever he (Ollie) was in Bottineau.

When I get caramels made, I'll mail them to you.

Again, I am SO SORRY for your loss.

Neola Kofoid Garbe
