Richard L. Seymour

Richard L. Seymour, Sr., 80, of Watervliet, passed away Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at Caretel Inn of Lakeland, St. Joseph.

Richard was born August 17, 1940 in Muskegon, MI to Norman and Dorothy (Smith) Seymour. Dick worked for Whirlpool for many years as a technician before his retirement in 1999. He continued to work as a technician several years past his retirement. Dick was a man with many skills and liked to keep busy. If he thought something was interesting, he invested his time in learning to do it. He had many hobbies, which included cooking, gardening, woodworking, dancing and beekeeping. His family fondly remembers him selling his wooden jewelry and ornaments at craft fairs, as well as his homemade syrup and salsa. He also enjoyed spending his evenings dancing at the DANK.

Dick is survived by his children, Elizabeth Seymour, Rebecca (Smitti) Pock, Richard Seymour, Jr., David Seymour, and Paula Moore; his seven grandchildren; his two great grandchildren; and his brothers, Norman (Joyce) Seymour, and Leonard Seymour. He is preceded in death by his parents.

Services will be held privately.
