With great sadness, we announce the passing of Seymour Wecksler, our beloved husband, father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. Born in 1933 in the Bronx, NY, Seymour moved to Howell as a child. He graduated from Lakewood High School where he starred as the quarterback and captain of his football team. He went on to graduate from Rutgers University in only three years before attending law school. Seymour left early to assist his father in running Freewood Acres Plumbing Supply which he owned and operated for over 40 years. He was a friend to all and will be missed dearly.
Seymour moved to Freehold in 1972 to raise his family. He built his home where he continued to reside until his passing. He was a sports fan and an avid car enthusiast who once owned the largest collection of MG automobiles in the country. Seymour loved celebrating every occasion and was a loyal and proud supporter of all his children and grandchildren’s sports and activities. He was the most loving, kind, supportive and compassionate man who will be sorely missed.
Seymour was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Gertrude (Levy) Wecksler; his brother, Norman; his sister, Beatrice; and his best friend, Eddie Lampert. He is survived by his wife, Ann Wecksler; his son, Brian Wecksler and his wife, Susan; daughter, Dana Vaccaro and her husband, John; son, Gary Wecksler and his wife, Alla; eight grandchildren, Samantha, Paige, Nicholas, Erica, Max, Jake, Flora and Zane; three great grandchildren, Brecken, Maisie and Sunny.
