Superior house explosion victim identified, GoFundMe site created

SUPERIOR, WI — We now know the identity of the man who died in a house explosion over the weekend in Superior.

Scott Seaquist, 61, was a lifelong resident of Superior. He spent the last 25 years working as a custodian at the University of Wisconsin-Superior.

Seaquist was known for his love of audio restoration and fireworks, according to his family.

In a statement, the family said:

“Scott C. Seaquist was Born on December 17th 1957 in Superior, Wisconsin and was a life long resident. He was known for his love of audio restoration and fireworks. He would make beautiful firework displays and share them with family and friends on the holidays. Unfortunately, the hobby he loved so much took his life. We hope this can be a lesson to others on the importance of safety at home. We would like to thank Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Superior Sheriff’s Office & all of the First Responders for their help. Scotty was loved by his family and those who knew him. He will be missed tremendously.”
