Mark H. Seely


Mark Seely, age 51, in the early morning hours of his birthday, on Saturday, April 20, 2019 died in Phoenix, AZ, his home for over 30 years. He was involved in a tragic motorcycle accident on his way to work. From his birth in Warwick, NY on April 20, 1968 to his death, he lived to serve with the biggest heart for others, always putting his faith, family, friends and co-workers before himself.

Mark attended Warwick Valley High School in Warwick, NY and Glendale Community College, Glendale, AZ and worked as an airline painter/mechanic for America West, USAir and American Airlines for over 30 years in Phoenix, AZ. He married the love of his life, Alyson Burger Seely on Sept 5, 2018 reuniting their union from their Warwick High School days and lovingly worked to plan for their future together. Mark was a child of Christ and was proud of who he became in his recent years. He was active in supporting several non-profit entities in which he believed and could aide others. Mark will always be remembered as a shining light.

Mark is survived by his beloved wife, Alyson Burger Seely of Dallas, TX, his five children, Joseph Sombrovich (28), Janethe (22), Ashley (17), Mary Kate (14) and Mark Jr. (12) and his bonus (step) children, Jack (18) and Tess (16), his mother, Mary H. Seely of Sun City, AZ, siblings Walter S. Seely III (Dorothy) of Longmont, CO and Katherine Christensen (Boyd) of Chandler, AZ and several nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his father, Walter S. Seely Jr. of Warwick NY (2012).

I’m so sorry to hear of your loss of Mark. It sounds as Mark worked hard to uphold Ephesians 5:28,29 “In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. A man who loves his wife loves himself for no man ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cherishes it, just as the Christ does the congregation”. As a God-fearing man I’m sure Mark truly cherished taking care of his family. 1Corinthians 15:26 speaks of the last enemy death being brought to nothing! No doubt we each long for a time when that is true. At John 5:28,29 it speaks of a resurrection at time when we will have an opportunity to be with all our loved ones again.

Mark will be remembered for his course change in life when he put his trust in Christ. It was my privilege to pray with him and encourage his faith. Our prayers will continue for Alyson and the children, as well as for His mom.
