Robert C. Seymour, 90, of Peshtigo, Wis., passed away Tuesday, March 11, 2014. He was born on February 20, 1924, to the late Earl P and Rena (Pruden) Seymour. Robert graduated from Marinette High School in 1943. He then served his country in the United States Army from 1943 to 1946 in the India/China/Burma theatre as a medic. After service he came back to Peshtigo and married the love of his life, Olive V. Kleinprintz on August 17, 1946. They were blissfully married for 68 years. 70 years ago Robert took over the family business, Seymour Lockers, and he considered his customers as friends. He operated the business with his wife Olive by his side, until their sons joined the business. Robert served on the Marinette School Board, Grover-Porterfield (Harmony) Fire Department, and as a member of the Harmony United Methodist Church he served as lay leader for a number of years. The highlight of his day was seeing his sons every morning, and getting his Wall Street Journal. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and family gatherings.
Robert is survived by his wife of 68 years, Olive; two sons: Mark (Esther) and Tom (Jill), all of Peshtigo; grandchildren: David, Daniel (Jodi), of Peshtigo, John, of Marinette, Branden (Melissa Geniesse) of Peshtigo, and Matt (Brandie) of Bismarck, N.D.; and two special boys: Gavin and Reese. He is further survived by a sister, Grace Phillips; a brother Charles; brother-in-law, Michael (Elaine) Kleinprintz; and a sister-in-law, Della Rose Seymour. Robert was preceded in death by his parents; siblings: Earl Jr. and Ervin; a sister-in-law, Irene Seymour; and a brother-in-law, Delbert Phillips.
