Love where you live!
Seau, who lived on Mt. Helix during his playing days with the Chargers, was a frequent contributor to local charities. The City of La Mesa had the Sports Complex at Parkway Middle School named for Seau and he was a frequent visitor to fundraising events and ceremonies associated with the field.
""He was always here for us,'' La Mesa Mayor Art Madrid said after hearing of Seau's death. "He was part of the family in this town.''
Seau, whose brother Sevaii is a popular La Mesa coach and artist, was found dead in Oceanside after a report of shooting. Friends were gathering to support Sevaii, who lives with his two sons in La Mesa.
City officials said many other local fans and supporters were asking permission to leave flowers at the Seau Sports Complex off Dallas Street. City Manager Dave Witt said the city was trying to set up a memorial area near the scoreboard at the parking lot end of the field.
The city is working with school officials to arrange for a place for people wanting to leave a commemoration.
