Kenneth W. Seymour Jr.
Kenneth Walter Seymour Jr., 87, passed away on April 6, 2023, at Elderwood of Uihlein at Lake Placid.
He was born in Saranac Lake on July 12th, 1935 and spent all of his life in Saranac Lake or Lake Placid. Ken married Elizabeth Smart of Lake Placid in 1986 where they lived happily on Northwoods Road for many years.
He is survived by his daughter, Lorrie of Great Barrington, Massachusetts; sons, Kenneth of Cincinnati, Ohio, and James of Peru, New York; stepdaughter, Deborah Amis, of Encinitas, California; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
He was a self-employed house painter that worked various jobs throughout his career in the Tri-Lakes. From painting for Mrs. Post at Camp Topridge to staining decks on Mirror Lake and everything in between. When he wasn’t painting, he could be found parked along the sides of most roadways in the area fishing for bookies or hunting rabbits with one of his hounds.
He will miss his mountains and they will miss him.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at noon on May 26 at St Agnes Church in Lake Placid. The Rev. John Yonkovig will officiate. Immediate family will meet at the cemetery following the ceremony. No reception will be held.
The M. B. Clark, Inc., Funeral Home in Lake Placid is in charge of arrangements. Condolences can be made at mbclarkfuneralhome.com.
