It is with saddened hearts that the family of Eric Phillip George Seymour announces his passing at age 75. Eric's journey began January 17 of 1946. Son of Richard Seymour and Louise Thomas, he went to school in the Akwesasne and Cornwall area attending Indian Day School, Saint Columban's West elementary, and St Lawrence High School. Eric went on to take Mechanical Engineering at Algonquin College, then transferring to Aylmer Police Academy where he successfully completed Advanced Patrol Training. Eric served fifteen years as a respected constable with the Akwesasne Mohawk Police before making a transition to security with Canadian Customs where he received recognition for thirty years of dedicated service. His devotion to the Mohawk Council of Akwesasne also earned him acknowledgment for sixteen years of service.
Beloved husband of Ginger (Mary) Seymour. Brother of Robert Seymour (Marie) and the late Eva Seymour & Kelly Beaubien. Loving father of Faye (deceased), Sherri, Justin, (deceased), Billy, Carrie, Brandon, Blake and his babies Blain and Jayla. Cherished grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle of countless others who were so near and dear to his heart.
Eric spent most of his free time on the river, whether boating, fishing or just enjoying the calmness of nature. He was a family man, a father, a grandfather and beloved husband who loved to give lawnmower rides, have big cookouts and poke fun at his loving wife.
