Dr. Harold William (Bill) Seager

Dr. Harold William (Bill) Seager, 77, passed away peacefully at home. Born in La Junta, Colorado, he was the grandson of two of the most notorious gunfighters in the early 1900s. One of which was famous and the other infamous. He grew up in the Watts, inner city of Los Angeles. He graduated college at University of California at Santa Barbara in 1966 and went forward to become a doctor of dentistry, practicing 52 years from 1970 through 2019.

He first served the state of Hawai‘i at the Kalaupapa and Hale Mohalu Hansen disease dental department. He then went into a private practice in O‘ahu. He became disenchanted with his career and life, then sold his practice and moved to Tahiti in 1975. He then returned to O‘ahu three years later with his Tahitian bride, who brought with her many tribal and unique customs from her native land.

In 1978, he met Baba Muktananda, a spiritual teacher. Through the grace of his guru, the application of meditation, study, chanting and praying remained a large, consistent part of his life, providing him with balance, peace and patience to weather and go through the ups and downs of life. His spiritual awakening changed his life to one of service to his family, community, patients and the world beyond. From that service he found unimaginable joy and happiness. His kindness and competence gained him much respect and love throughout the community.

Moving to Kaua‘i, he became a surgical dentist at Wilcox Hospital, and later, in 1997, he and his partner Shawn Murphy opened up the first and only dental clinic in Hanalei. He later sold out his half of the business to work for the Ho‘ola Lahui community clinic in Kapa‘a, feeling that he enjoyed working for the poorer people of the island. He enjoyed working with the team at the community clinic, and felt how much they appreciated the dental assistance.

After 40 years of marriage, his wife passed, and through God’s grace he reconnected with his present wife Charlene Seager, who was also a widow. Together, they have lived a peaceful life surrounded by his four hanai grandchildren, Ashlyn, Callie, Brecken and Dillion, as well as his sweet animals and plants. He is also survived by his son Del and his new grandson Reef.

His parting words are “this may seem like the end, but it’s not — it’s just the beginning…”

All donations are asked to be made to Kaua‘i Hospice, whose careful, professional, compassionate management allowed for him to be comfortable in his last days.
