Seamus's days as a teenager in Yorkton are remembered fondly by his classmates and peers. He was a fun loving and unique character. Many who grew up in Yorkton in the 1980's will remember Seamus's famous "stick man van". There are countless humorous stories of Seamus's experiences from this time in his life.

Although his marriage to Reni ended at this time, they remained friends, particularly in the last several years of his life. In 2014 Seamus began work at Snow Lake, MB with Hudbay Minerals. He would travel back and forth from his home in Langenburg to his work in Snow Lake on a weekly basis. He enjoyed the drive, often stopping to pick rocks along the way. He loved his Snow Lake family. He thought of his roommate Riley Eastman as a brother and Riley's mom and dad, Gail and Gator Eastman as another set of parents. He was well liked by his coworkers had many good friends in the Snow Lake community. A month before his passing he had commented how he loved his current life and how his time in Snow Lake brought him complete happiness.

Seamus will be remembered for his sense of humor. He made so many people he came into contact with laugh. He could change the workplace from a place of boredom to a place of fun. And a party just wasn't the same without Seamus. Seamus will be remembered for his love of animals, especially dogs and cats. When he saw a dog, he could not stop himself from petting or hugging it and many a cat were wrapped in blankets and cradled in his arms. Seamus will be remembered for his preoccupation with rocks. He picked them, he hauled them, he made Inukshuks with them and he never stopped dreaming of building with them. Seamus loved family gatherings. He loved to tease his nieces and nephews and younger cousins. He was always entertaining and they looked forward to his visits. He loved a good fish fry and a bonfire (the bigger the better). He was a warm and welcoming person, at ease with anyone, and he loved to visit with friends and family of all ages.
Seamus was predeceased by his grandparents Leo and Alma Lubiniecki of Sturgis; and James and Joan Dodd of St. John's NFLD, his uncles, Bernie Lubiniecki and Kevin Lubiniecki.
