Seth attended Kilgore College. He met his wife Thelma Walton in 1983 and they have been married for over 40 years. He enjoyed traveling overseas with Thelma taking cruises to various countries and making several friends along the way. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and golf with some of his closest friends. Seth loved everything about being outdoors. He found peace outdoors and always felt it was the best setting for good conversation. Typically, on any given day you would find him sitting on the front porch taking it all in. Seth was a very successful investor who was always willing to help others understand what it took to grow their wealth. Throughout his career as a Lead/Master Pressman he received several awards and accomplishments. Seth's goal was always to retire early and that is just what he did.  He was highly respected in the workplace due to his unwavering ability to always be fair and treat others as equal. What stood out most is that he always saw the good and potential in others. Seth was an honest man who pride himself on keeping his promises to others. He was funny, generous and always considerate of others feelings. He had compassion for others and what they were going through. He was known to all as "The Rock" or "The Italian Stallion” but to his family he was Father and Poppo.

Seth was preceded in death by his son, Joshua Craig Koob; father, Seth Roe Walton; mother, Vera Elizabeth Walton; paternal grandfather, Seth Roe Walton Sr.; paternal grandmother, Vida E. Neal; maternal grandfather, James Owen Bellew; and maternal grandmother, Sybil Norris Bellew.

Left to cherish his memory include his wife, Thelma Walton; daughter, Juana Torres (Marcelo Torres); son, Timothy Koob; granddaughter, Alexis Merritt-Torres; granddaughter, Victoria Torres; grandson, Kane Koob; grandson, Joshua Koob Jr.; great granddaughter, Madilyn Koob; and sibling, Neal Walton.
