    As a member of the New Haven Hiking
    club I spent many enjoyable miles hiking with Seymour. He was a very informed and pleasant person.

    Seymour is remembered as a kind and gentle man who cared about family. He loved art, music and the natural world. He will be missed.

    I am a librarian at the Woodbridge Town Library, and Seymour was one of our most loyal and faithful patrons. In addition to being a part of our book discussion group, he would also frequently attend our Thursday night film screenings. Seymour always made sure to stop and tell me how he liked, or disliked, the film on his way out! He was a very kind man, and I am so sorry to learn of his passing. I will miss seeing him at the library.
