Tad James Seney was born in Buffalo on May 16, 1964 to Ralph and Karen Seney. He attended school in Buffalo, and upon graduating from BHS in 1982 he moved to San Diego where he attended Grossmont Community College and studied Art. While living in San Diego he also did some modeling. He worked for FedEx as a driver for many years. He later attended cosmetology school and graduated with a degree in cosmetology. In 2006 he purchased his home in Desert Hot Springs, California where he lived until his passing.
Most would remember him as an amazing, talented artist. He loved photography and took many photos of the Coachella Valley Desert sunrises and sunsets and enjoyed creating time-lapse videos of the clouds to share with his family and friends. He also had a huge heart for animals, especially dogs; one very special dog he had many years was Sarah. He earned the title of UST “Uncle Super Tad” from his sisters’ children, Lexi, Kassi and Marcus with whom he was very close as they were growing up. And when they began having their own children this was passed on to them. He was so proud of the title he even had it tattooed on his wrist. He enjoyed going to the mountains with them for picnics and fishing at Tie Hack reservoir. His dream was to witness the Solar Eclipse and on Aug. 21, 2017 he traveled to Afton with his good friend Pauly to witness this great event. He also loved music; one of his favorite artists was Madonna and he attended many of her sold-out concerts.
He was preceded in death by his father Ralph S. Seney; his grandparents, Ruth and Frank Seney, Jasmine and C. Vance Lucas; and his great-aunt Vee and uncle Fred Seney all of Buffalo. He is survived by his mother Karen Seney formerly of Buffalo; his brother Sid and his wife Mimi of El Cajon, California; his sister Bambi and her husband Mark Jones of Rio Vista, California; his eight nieces and two nephews; five great-nieces and three great-nephews.
