He continued his education at St. Cloud State University, where he graduated in 2012 with a degree in rhetorical and applied writing.

Seth was an avid sports fan. He played baseball from T-ball through high school and formed many lasting friendships as a result. He also enjoyed spending time hunting and fishing. He was passionate about Minnesota sports teams, especially the Minnesota Twins, and loved viewing and attending many sporting events. Known as Phonix, he was a talented songwriter and performer with a library including more than 200 original tracks. He drew musical inspiration from artists such as Tupac Shakur and Lil Wayne. His family and friends were incredibly important to him, and he was especially proud to be an uncle to his goddaughter, Josephine.
Seth is survived by his parents, Kim and Patricia Kallevig, of Newport; his sister, Nicole (Matt) Fischer of Marshall; his brother Sean (Kayla) Kallevig of Edgerton; niece/goddaughter, Josephine Fischer, and nephew, Brom Fischer. He is also survived by his paternal grandparents, Gerald and Jean Kallevig of Belgrade, maternal grandfather, Mervin Eischens of Canby, and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
Seth was preceded in death by his uncle, Jeff Nelson and aunt, Suzanne Kraemer. On March 3, 2018, his maternal grandmother, Velma Eischens, went to meet him in Heaven.
Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete? Proving nature’s laws wrong it learned 2 walk without having feet. Funny it seems, but by keeping its dreams, it learned 2 breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared!
– Tupac Shakur
Ever the dreamer, Seth will be greatly missed by all.
