Donald Farrell Seubert, son of Benjamin and Genevieve (Pool) Seubert, was born on June 30, 1934, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  Don was raised on a farm south of Sioux Falls.  Don attended country school during his early years in rural Sioux Falls, and later concluded his formal education at Washington High School.  Don later moved to New York and was a property manager for up to 30 brownstone buildings in Brooklyn Heights, NY, for over 30 years. 

Don was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses at the age of six, in 1940.  He was a full-time minister for 16 years in an effort to bring God’s promises for people and this earth mentioned in the Bible.  As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, Don volunteered in assisting in the construction and building of many Kingdom Halls.  He was very instrumental in the insulation department of the halls throughout New York and the Midwest. 

Don first met Jeanne Accardi at a Gilead graduation in Ithaca, NY.  On November 27, 1965, Don married the love of his life. This marriage was blessed with three children: Jeanna, Donna, and Mark.   In 1986, Don moved his family back to Sioux Falls, to care for his aging parents. Don worked various jobs as a sanitation engineer, mowing lawns, delivering furniture, and buying and selling cars at the auto auction in Tea, SD.

Don had a very strong work ethic and a big heart.  His generous nature was always evident when he was visiting with people.   Don loved ice cream, candy and free coffee.  Don had a great sense of humor.  He always had a smile on his face and an infectious laugh.  Don loved Cadillacs and collected many cars over the years. 

Don will be deeply missed by his wife, Jeanne, Sioux Falls; two daughters, Jeanna Seubert, Sioux Falls, SD, and Donna (Jeff) Serna, Lyman, SC; one son, Mark Seubert, Elk River, MN; five grandchildren, Alexus, Andrew, and Brielle Rieff, Anthony and Isabella Seubert; one brother-in-law, John (Irene) Accardi, Westfield, MA; one sister-in-law, Joanne Seubert, Melbourne, FL; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. 

Don was preceded in death by his parents, Benjamin and Genevieve Seubert; one sister, Marlyse Held; and one brother, Merlyn Seubert.
