The passing of Charles Seymour of Fredericton, NB, husband of the late Hilda (Arsenault) Seymour, occurred on Monday, March 7, 2022 at Hospice Fredericton.  Born on April 24, 1929 in Fredericton, NB, he was the son of the late Irvine and Hildred (Saunders) Seymour


Charles spent most of his career at Wood Motors where he became co-owner with his longtime friend, Bob Johnson.  Community involvement was always important to Charles; he served multiple terms on Nashwaaksis Village Council, was Charter President of the Epsilon Y’s men and served on the board of Pine Grove Nursing Home.


His passion was spending time with family and friends at the cottage on French Lake. In his retirement, he became very active in the Harness Racing Community and made many friendships. He enjoyed his winter home in Pompano Beach and the many card games in the Florida Room, also his Bridge Club here in Fredericton.
