Although he may have graduated from Humber, Sean Seeber’s tragic death will keep him a part of the Humber family.

Seeber’s life was cut short Sept. 9 when a single vehicle accident occurred in the Lakeshore and Avonhead Roads area in south Mississauga. The 25-year-old Oakville native was killed when the car he was a passenger of veered off the road around 3 a.m.

Off-duty Peel Region Const. Tristian Kettles, assigned to 11 Division in east Mississauga, was the driver of the vehicle and was also killed in the crash, according to Toronto police, who is investigating the crash. A third person in the car suffered injuries not considered life-threatening, police said.

According to his obituary, Seeber was an honours graduate of the Humber police foundations program and was actively pursuing his dream to be a police officer with Halton Regional Police.

In the meantime, Seeber was working as a mental health assistant at Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

Seeber was an only child and is survived by his parents, Scott and Tara Seeber, as well as his girlfriend Amanda Tanti, with whom he was deeply in love with, the notice stated.

“He was a ‘Big Brother’ and an active member of his community, volunteering his time and energy to many causes,” the notice stated. “There are no words sufficient to express the depth of our family’s loss.

“Sean was an incredibly vibrant, ambitious and compassionate young man, with a hunger for life,” the family notice stated. “He possessed a smile and personality that would light up the room.

The recent graduate left behind not only a great school, but an outstanding reputation with the faculty and administration of Humber’s police foundation course, said police foundations program coordinator and retired Peel homicide detective Richard DeFacendis.

“The administration was notified and I sent out a formal communique to all faculty members,” he said. “Faculty and administration alike were shocked deeply saddened by the news. A promising life ended far too soon.”

Seeber left his personality and willingness to achieve the highest honour any police foundations student could have wished to leave with Humber, DeFacendis said.

His parents ask that anyone who was touched by his death to leave a donation made to Big Brothers and Sisters of Canada. No formal service was planned but a celebration of life is being planned.
