Seth David Case
On April 26th, 2022, just shy of his tenth birthday, our beloved Seth David Case unexpectedly passed away. Seth was a cherished son, little brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend. Seth was born on May 2, 2012, to Jeffery Wayne Case and Donna Lorraine Morrison. Seth was a baptized member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Seth was an avid Pokémon Trainer, Nintendo master, aspiring woodworker, baseball player, and knower of all things. He was always actively downloading information to his brain. Seth could and did spend hours sharing baseball player stats, Pokémon facts, and anything else he was actively interested in. He had many career goals, some of which were to be the United States President, a county sheriff, or a Major League baseball player. He was an avid fan of the LA Dodgers, and his favorite player was Mookie Betts.
Seth had chronic “ants-in-your-pants” and he knew it and he owned it. He was always on the move and rarely sat still for more than a few minutes. Over the last few months Seth was working on writing his own novels, comics, and recently started filming his own rendition of Home Alone. He was inspired by the home movies he and his siblings would make for their parents for Christmas over the years. He starred in roles such as Max the dog from How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Brick Heck from the sitcom The Middle. He played these roles so well and made us all laugh till our bellies hurt.
Seth shared a unique bond with each of his siblings and we all loved him so much. He longed to be just like his big brother Dallin. His goal in life was to be as tall as Dallin and to sing as low as Dallin did. He often showed this by singing as low as he could during primary programs and to anyone who would listen. Seth adored his big sister Liz. If he was ever going to hug a girl, it would be Liz. She had a special way of calming his anxieties. He loved to listen to Elizabeth’s secret singing sessions, and he often bragged about getting to hear it. Seth could always rely on Tabitha to feed him well. He hated sweets, but he loved her peanut butter cookies. They were truly buddies even though he would never admit he was friends with a girl. Tabitha loved to babysit Seth and always had fun activities and games to play together. His big sister Meghan was also a girl, and he loved that her first car had the word “Toy” in the name because it reminded him of Toy Story. Seth loved to beat Meghan at every Nintendo game they played together. Meghan made the best mashed potatoes in the world, he said. He was so sad when she moved away and often spoke about how different places smelled like her car. He loved the smell of her car because she took him on adventures. Seth had the special opportunity to be privileged with a brother-in-law. He always wanted a little sibling, but having an older additional brother was the coolest thing to him. He could talk to Nathan about Pokémon and video games. He loved when Nathan would take him geocaching and on Pokémon Go adventures. He bragged to everyone about how he had a super cool brother-in-law. He loved Nathan so much.
Seth was adored and cherished by his parents. He was his dad’s “mini-me” and his mom’s little potato boy. He spent countless hours in the backyard with his dad playing and practicing sports. Seth lived for his mom’s potato recipes. He could never get enough of potatoes in his life whether it be baked, French fried, mashed, hashbrowns, or Kettle brand potato chips. He was not fond of sweet foods but would be on top of the world when handed a saltshaker. Seth was homeschooled, but he was the one who taught us. We are grateful that we were to able to spend so much time together.
Seth always surprised us with how much knowledge he had of the gospel. We rejoice in knowing that he now knows more. We know that he is now embraced in the arms of our Savior and eagerly await the reunion we will have in heaven.
Seth is survived by his loving parents, Jeff and Donna, his siblings Meghan (Nathan) Stolp, Dallin, Elizabeth, and Tabitha, his grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
The viewing will be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 9:00 AM to 10:45 AM and the funeral will follow at 11:00 AM. The location is 3610 South 8400 West.
We would like to say thank you to Seth’s friends and those who reached out to him. You have no idea of the amazing impact you had on his life. We would also like to extend our gratitude to St. Marks West Valley Emergency, Unified Police Department, and Peel Funeral Home for their diligent efforts, professionalism, and incredible generosity.
“And because of the way of deliverance of our God, the Holy One of Israel, this death, of which I have spoken, which is the temporal, shall deliver up its dead; which death is the grave.” - 2 Nephi 9:11
As Seth would say, “Can we say prayer now?”
