Edward Wayne Seymour, Sr.

September 11, 1949 — March 14, 2023

Edward Wayne Seymour Sr - Died at his home in Nederland early Tuesday morning, March 14- with his wife and children by his side. Edward was born September 11, 1949 - he was 73 - he embraced everyday with great anticipation for what the day would bring.

Edward was an enthusiastic athlete - working out at the Gym - and playing pick up games of basketball at Nederland Rec. Center. He closed his office every day at 3:00 to pick his children from school -and the rest of the day was spent - teaching, coaching and enjoying baseball, football, basketball, and softball with his four children - actually it was play - which is what he lived for.

He was a loving husband to his wife Susan (married over 53 years) - most of all he was Our GOAT - Greatest Of All Time - father to sons Ed Jr., Joshua, Jeremy and daughter Sadie - best of all - and the most important thing to know - his life was one of kindness given to all who passed his way. When you leave this life - the one most important thing to leave is your legacy - the character and kindheartedness - that he accomplished in his life is deeply-rooted in the character of his children, grandchildren and great grandson - as with every parent, you want your legacy to continue on, as it will with his family - with the strength of his legacy his children will now lead their Grandchildren and great grandchildren forward with much eagerness - as we continue - knowing that we had a loving gift from God - How blessed and thankful for all that has been given to us.

Edward, our dad and mostly our Pa Pa is survived by his wife Susan, his son Ed Jr. and wife Priscilla, his son Joshua and wife Jordan, his son Jeremy and wife Angie, his daughter Sadie and husband Kyle Sonnier - and of course his beloved grandchildren, (they number 20) Ed III, Andrew and wife Anna, Beau, and Hattie Seymour and her son Archie Broussard. Joshua Jr, Anna, Katie, and Ella Seymour - Rhyan, Slade, Tait and Eden Stoker, Gracie, Emma and Shea Seymour, Cannon Faulk and Devin Boyd, and Lily and Daisy Sonnier.
