We didn't know Seth but had a noise and parking problem with his friends at our address.
He addressed and fixed the issue with humility and responsibility.
Seldom I have seen anyone take fault for anything with such integrity and fix it so swiftly.
He impressed me as a very decent person with excellent upbringing.
I only met Seth once but we communicated otherwise...he was very welcoming, fun, and caring. So sad to hear that his life was so short. Deepest sympathies to his friends and family.
Great guy and will be missed. RIP.
Seth was a wonderful guy who shared his knowledge and passion for music with everyone. He would always light up a room with his company and jokes. I loved spending time with him over a few drinks. He was a very special guy to all who encountered him. 💖
I loved working with Seth and missed him greatly when he moved to Home Services. I kept hoping he would come back to MidAmerican. He was smart, hardworking, talented and an all around great guy.
So sad to learn this. Seth was a former student and yes he was very bright. His struggle is over. May he rest in peace.
