    My Dad loved his family so much.

    That love lives in me and embraces me with each thought of you.

    I cherish our long, squeezing hugs, your quiet grace and your playful love of games, sports and music.

    You were a wonderful dad. I love you and I miss you.

    I have fond memories of Robert when teaching at Greythorn High School and then more memories as he married my cousin Margaret and we had lots of more contact.
    He was a great friend and helped many people.

    Robert ‘Beans’ Seedsman
    Sue and I wish to record our sadness at Robert’s passing.
    We have been close
    friends through various organisations, clubs and school over a period of 60 years.
    ‘Beans'( we still think of him by this nickname) was an enthusiastic and talented
    musician, with great skill in remembering songs – I rarely saw him use a chord book.
    He was also a dogged defender on the backline of Canterbury Pressies for many years.
    Although both his and our work took us in different directions, we continued to get together whenever possible.
    Margaret and Robert visited us many times after we moved to Queensland.
    As we grew older, we were always impressed with is zest for life, good humour and calm manner. I never saw him get angry.
    I am grateful that we were able to visit him late last year, and we reminisced about all the fun times we had together.
    To say he will be missed does not fully convey the hole we feel in our lives.
    We are grateful to Margaret for the care and great friendship she provided.
    Harlie & Sue

    A loyal and devoted member of the Berries Football team where I had the privilege of playing many games with Bob “Beans”.
    One of the toughest half backs and so glad I was on his team and not an opponent.
    Condolences Margaret and all the family.

    I will always remember Robert’s witty sense of humour and his generosity towards his family and friends.
    Every time I order minestrone soup, I will remember you deliberately mispronouncing it see if the wait staff would notice.
    Condolences to Margaret and family.
