On the early morning of February 4th, we lost John “Bob” Sebring. He was a great husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend. He was a resident of Santa Clara County for all of his life. He was a veteran who served our country in the United States Navy. After he was honorably discharged, he went off to graduate from San Jose State. He was very proud to be a Spartan. After graduation, he went on to work for PG&E for 37 years, where he met his beautiful wife Nancy. Together they raised a wonderful family, whom they loved very much. Bob loved playing softball, and did so up until just a couple years ago. When he wasn’t playing, he loved organizing the running tournaments. He was very grateful for those that assisted him with his tournaments, especially his last ones that he needed even more help with. While he loved his family very much, he held his softball family very close to his heart. He was extremely honored and humbled when he was inducted into the Senior Softball Hall of Fame in 2017.
Bob’s softball career spanned 5 decades beginning in local leagues and playing on and managing various PG&E teams. He then starting playing more competitively in tournaments including traveling to many other states to play in various divisional and state championship tournaments. He then started playing senior softball with State Roofing Royals where he traveled all over the United States.
As many know, Bob had several ongoing health issues including congestive heart failure, cancer, diabetes and he was constantly battle kidney failure. Ultimately his heart gave out just after midnight on the 4th of February.
We will be holding a service for Bob on Friday, February 12th at 1pm. It will be at Oak Hill Memorial Park in San Jose (300 Curtner Ave.). It will be at the gravesite, near the 9/11 Memorial. Due to COVID-19 it will be standing only with masks and social distancing required. We are also limited to just 100 guests.
