William Albert "Bill" Seigworth, 80, of Oil City, died Tuesday, December 28th, 2010, as a result of a traffic accident near Clarksburg, West Virginia. At the time of his death, he and his wife were traveling to their winter home in Florida.

He was born on August 31, 1930 in Strattanville, PA., the third child of Clem L. and Besse Irene Shaffer Seigworth.

He was married to Betty Lee Seigworth, who preceded him in death. They were blessed with five children; Delores Wenner and husband, Tom, of Clarion, William Seigworth and wife, Deb, of Seneca, Denise Falvo and husband, Rick, of Erie, David Seigworth and wife, Peg, of Seneca, and Bruce Seigworth and wife, Jeanne, of Seneca.

He is also survived by three great grandchildren Adelaide, Andrew, and Kelsi Seigworth.

He is survived by his wife, Maureen Lee (Wiser) Seigworth, who he married in 1993. Also surviving are two stepchildren, Jeremy Wiser and wife, Erica, of Ford City, Rebecca Wiser of Fayetteville, NC and three step grandchildren, Addison, McKenna, and Tytan Wiser.

Bill is also survived by three sisters: Pat Rhoads of Brookville, Marilyn Fox of Sligo, Linda (Fred) Heasley of Strattanville, two brothers: Fred (Brenda) Seigworth of Zelienople, Tom (Ella May) Seigworth of Brookville, two sisters-in-law: Mary Lou Seigworth, of Sackets Harbor, NY, and Bernice (Chuck) Maul of Erie. He was preceded in death by two brothers: Harold Lloyd Seigworth and Ronald Seigworth, a sister-in-law Donna Seigworth, and a brother-in-law Chris Fox.

Bill was a loving father, grandfather, and friend. He enjoyed traveling internationally and was particularly happy to travel with his whole immediate family to Europe in 2007. In his younger years he was active in bowling leagues. He was also an avid golfer, hunter, and fisherman. He traveled out West and Canada with friends on numerous hunting and fishing trips.

He spent over 40 years in the soft drink business first working at the Coca Cola plant in Clarion, then as owner of Seigworth Distributors from 1958-1989.   He was involved in other business ventures in the area.

Having thought we all should give something back to the community that we live in; Bill served on the Oil City Hospital Board, Northwest Health System Board, UPMC Northwest Foundation Board, and VNA of Venango County Board. He also served on the Venango County Vo-Tech Advisory Committee, was a member of the Oil City Jaycees and served on the board of the Oil City Area Chamber of Commerce. He had served on the Seneca United Methodist Church Board of Trustees and the Pastor Parish Relations Committee. Bill was a 50+ year member of Clarion Masonic Lodge 277 and Coudersport Consistory.

Friends will be received at the Morrison Funeral Home at 110 Petroleum Street, Oil City on Friday, January 7th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm and 7:00 to 9:00 pm.

Funeral services will be conducted at Seneca United Methodist Church on Saturday January 8th at 11:00 am with Rev. Rob Wilson officiating.

And the papers reported.....

Police release the name of a man who died in an accident on I-79 Tuesday Afternoon.  

80-year-old William Seigworth of Oil City, Pennsylvania was driving a van on I-79 shortly after 11:00 a.m. before losing control and crossing the median.  An F-150 merging onto the northbound lanes of I-79 at the Anmoore exit swerved to miss the oncoming van, but the van was struck in the passenger side door. The van ended up on top of an elevated area along the interstate.  Seigworth was pronounced dead at the scene.  His passenger and wife Maureen Lee Seigworth was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital.  Her condition is unknown at this time.
The driver of the truck had minor injuries from the airbag deploying. Re-constructionists were at the scene for almost five hours and State Police are investigating.  Keep it here to WDTV 5 News for updates on this crash.


ANMOORE -- Bridgeport State Police have released the name of the deceased person involved in the vehicle accident on Interstate 79 Tuesday morning.  The driver of the vehicle, William A. Seigworth, 80, of Oil City, Pennsylvania, was killed after his vehicle hit a Ford F150, head on. His wife, Maureen Lee Seigworth was flown to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. State Troopers believe the driver of the vehicle was not wearing a seatbelt at the time the collision occurred. The accident is still under investigation.


---Original Story--- One person was killed in an accident Tuesday morning on Interstate 79 in Harrison County. The accident happened just after 11 a.m. in the northbound lanes near the Anmoore exit, 911 officials said. A minivan, with Pennsylvania license plates, was heading south on Interstate 79, when it lost control, crossed the median and hit a Ford F-150 pick-up truck, with West Virginia plates, head on, state police said. One person in the minivan was killed. The other person in the van was flown by helicopter to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown with unknown injuries. The driver of the pick-up truck received only minor injuries and did not immediately go to the hospital. Traffic in the area was reduced to one lane and investigators may need to completely shut down the interstate's northbound lanes, they said. Anmoore and Bridgeport Fire and EMS crews, along with firefighters from Stonewood and the Division of Highways, responded to the scene.

Pennsylvania man dies in I-79 accident  CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Pennsylvania man died and his wife was critically injured Tuesday after the minivan he was driving made an abrupt swerve and was hit by a vehicle coming in the opposite direction on Interstate 79 near Clarksburg.

The Charleston Gazette

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Pennsylvania man died and his wife was critically injured Tuesday after the minivan he was driving made an abrupt swerve and was hit by a vehicle coming in the opposite direction on Interstate 79 near Clarksburg. William A. Seigworth, 80, of Oil City, Pa., was driving south at about 11:15 a.m. when he "abruptly swerved," according to State Police Trooper A.J. Mendez. Seigworth drove into the median and then into the northbound lane near Anmoore. A Ford F-150 truck that was traveling north struck the van on the passenger side. The van flew into the air and landed on an elevated embankment alongside the Interstate, Mendez said. Seigworth died in the wreck; his wife, Maureen, was in critical condition at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown on Tuesday afternoon. Mendez said officers are still trying to determine what happened. It could have been a heart attack, but the van was filled with items, including golf clubs, that might have shifted, he explained. A member of the State Police accident reconstruction team from Morgantown is also working on the accident. Mendez said the driver of the Ford truck, a Clarksburg resident who sustained minor injuries, was "not to blame" for the accident and fatality.
