      Seth Loyd Brassfield, loving husband, dad and friend left this world to be with his heavenly father on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2004. Those of us who were privileged to know him will treasure the memory of his warm personality and his devotion to his family, colleagues and country. He will be deeply missed.

      Seth was born on Nov. 17, 1934, in Braggs, to the proud parents of Ervin Matt and Emma Brassfield, he was one of 10 children. At the age of 18, Seth joined the United States Marines and was stationed in Japan and Korea during the Korean Conflict. After the war Seth relocated in Tulsa where he was an auditor for Sinclair Oil and Gas Company, traveling 15 states and Canada.

      He met the love of his life Patsy Lou Bagley. He was introduced to her by his lifelong friends, Frank and Beuna Beller. Seth and Patsy were married on July 21, 1961, in Sallisaw. He was the loving father of one child, Floyd Matthew. He was also the proud grandfather of one girl, Meghan Mashelle and one boy, Houston Cole.

      Seth had numerous accomplishments in life beginning with his graduation from Northeastern State University in May, 1965, with a bachelor of science in accounting and economics. Seth began his career as comptroller with Liberty State Bank in Tahlequah. After leaving the bank he opened his public accounting practice which he operated for 25 years.

      During his years as a public accountant he was also an enrolled agent with the IRS. After retiring from the accounting practice he served as president of First State Bank, Tahlequah. He then established First United Loan Company Inc. which quickly grew to 5 locations.

      Seth was most proud of his service to the Lord while attending First Assembly of God in Tahlequah. Seth served in many capacities within the church including choir director, Sunday school teacher and deacon. His love for the Lord was so apparent to all who met him, his tender voice and loving hugs were a source of comfort and strength.

      Seth's joy came from helping others; he was most comfortable when his role involved serving instead of leading. He had a way of making folks feel comfortable and welcomed in his presence. Many of his clients said he was not an adviser, he was a "true friend."

      In addition to his beloved wife, son and grandchildren, precious memories will be forever cherished by his devoted family, one brother Amos and wife Tron of New Boston, Texas; four sisters: Vera Palmer, Emma Jean Palmer, Ola Mae Vaughn Cody, and Vergie and Herman Frasier, all of Muldrow.

      Seth was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers, J.V., Huston and Neal. His love and support of family endeared him to his many wonderful nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who share our sentiments and joy of having known Seth.

      The family requests, in lieu of flowers, to consider donations in Seth's memory to First Assembly of God, Remodeling Fund, P.O. Box 1277, Tahlequah, Okla. 74464. Seth always had a vision for the church and its future.

      Green Country Funeral Home, 203 S. Commercial Road, 458-5055.
