For those of you that knew my brother Gary Seaback I am sad to report
he died at around 1:15 yesterday (1/3/10) afternoon in College Station Texas.
He was in perfect shape and was committed to health and nutrition and yet he was found dead on the side of the road that he jogged on regularly.
He died of an apparent heart attack.
He was a great friend as well as a role model and I miss him already.
