Thomas Seaburg

Thomas Michael Seaburg, 76, of Carrington, ND passed away Friday November 27, 2020 at St. Aloisus Nursing Home, Harvey, ND.

Tom was born on October 16, 1944 in Torrance, CA to William Seaburg and Dorothy (Fiedler) Baelz.  He grew up in Fargo, ND and graduated from Central High School in 1962.  Tom attended North Dakota State University where he obtained his Pharmacy Degree in 1967.

Tom met the love of his life, Donna O’Connell while attending NDSU where he was an active member of Kappa Psi Fraternity and a Shriner.  They were married on August 19, 1967 at Messiah Lutheran Church in Fargo, ND.  They lived in Moorhead, MN where he was a Pharmacist for Foss Drug for 8 years before moving to Carrington, ND in 1975 when they bought Galehouse Drug.  Over the next 32 years his business grew to include 4 drug stores in Carrington, New Rockford and Langdon, ND.

Throughout his life, Tom enjoyed a variety of activities such as snow skiing, traveling to Cancun and attending the Sturgis Bike Rally.  He enjoyed collecting Corvette’s and guns.  He was a member of Northern Lights Corvette Club, The Ohio Gun Collectors Association, Browning Collectors Association and Dakota Territory Gun Collectors Association, where he served as President.  He was very active in the community and served on various boards such as Jewett Drug, Carrington Airport Authority and Trinity Lutheran Church Council. Tom believed the best gift he could ever give anybody was to help further their education.  He enjoyed teaching all the pharmacy students he had throughout the many years.  Tom will always be remembered for his continuous generosity to the community and his family.

  17. We are very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. When I last talked to him, he was still in the hospital, but expected to go home soon. I hope that happened. Tom and Donna were good friends in college and our friendship continued for a lifetime.
    Tom was great fun as a fraternity brother, and always more than willing to pitch in on anything that needed to be done. His outgoing personality made him a wonderful pharmacist and hence a very successful businessman. He will be sorely missed, and we can only hope that for everyone the good memories of our time with Tom will soon shine through today’s clouds of sorrow.
