Rev. Frank Logan Seaman, born January 11, 1938, died on September 1, 2023, at 85 years old after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was surrounded by his adoring family in the comfort of his San Antonio home.
Frank was born in Tyler, Texas to Francis and Claribel Seaman. Upon graduating from Tyler High School, he attended Austin College in Sherman, Texas, receiving a degree in philosophy in 1959. It was at Austin College where he met the love of his life, Geraldine Sanders. The couple married on August 1, 1959 then moved to Richmond, Virginia where Frank attended Union Theological Seminary. Upon receiving his divinity degree, he was ordained as a Minister of Word and Sacrament at Sardis Presbyterian Church in Sardis, Mississippi in 1962. While living in Sardis, the family welcomed two children, daughter Denyse and son Mark.
Following his pastorate in Sardis, Frank and family returned to Texas where he served Westminster Presbyterian Church in Odessa, First Presbyterian Church in Bay City, and Northwood Presbyterian Church in San Antonio. Frank retired from ministry in 2001 and was named Pastor Emeritus by the Northwood congregation. He then accepted the position of Director of Church Relations at Schreiner University in Kerrville, where he served until 2008. Later in life, he began attending University Presbyterian Church in San Antonio and served that congregation in several capacities, including Parish Associate.
Frank lived a life dedicated to the public good, donating his time and energy to help others through volunteer work with many community organizations including United Way, ministerial alliances, House of Neighborly Service, various food banks, and Morgan’s Wonderland. He also served several terms on the Board of Directors of the Presbyterian Pan American School in Kingsville. Well into his 80’s, he was active in various church committees at all levels, from local to Presbytery to Synod.

He is survived by daughter Helen Denyse Rodgers (husband David) of Waco, Texas, son Dr. Mark Logan Seaman (wife D’Ann) of San Antonio, grandson Taylor Logan Seaman (wife Lexie) of Boerne, grandson Trent Hall Seaman of Houston, and great-granddaughter Remi Chistian Seaman.
