WELLSVILLE — Seth Michael Utt, 25, of Wellsville, passed away Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, due to injuries sustained in an accident.

He was born Nov. 21, 1992, in East Liverpool, the son of Karl and Connie (Tolson) Utt of Wellsville.

Seth graduated from Southern Local High School in 2011 where he was a member of National Honor Society and achieved perfect attendance during all four years of high school. He played six years of basketball and four years of football during his time in school. Seth was employed in maintenance for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Wildlife Parks Division.

He also enjoyed his trips to Canada where he would fish with his grandfather. Seth enjoyed being in the outdoors and loved spending time with his dog, Macy. He was a cheerful young man and his beautiful smile would light up any room he was in.
