Seau with wife Gina, daughter Sydney and son Jake skiing in Deer Valley, Utah, in 1999. Seau bought a house in Deer Valley so Gina could ski in the winter and he could train at altitudeand water-ski. "He was such a family man," says Gina. "Here's a Samoan guy who grew up on the beach who knew nothing about snow skiing but bought a house in the mountains because we all loved to snow ski. He wasn't shredding, but he could keep up even though he was such a big dude. And he loved watching the kids do their thing."
