Obituary for Seymour Baer

Print
Seymour Baer of Lenox, MA and Bloomfield, CT died Thursday November 1, 2018.

Born on June 19, 1942, Seymour was raised by his father, Jacob Baer and grandmother, Rebecca Galper following mother Irene Baer’s death later that year. Seymour passed away peacefully on November 1, 2018 at Mercy Hospital in Springfield, MA. As a youth, he spent ten years at Torah Vadat Yeshiva and two years at New London High School . Seymour joined the US Air Force for four years and then enlisted in the US Navy to expand his horizons. As an aviation logistician, he arranged aircraft supplies on the Nimitz, the Independence, and the Guam. A veteran of the Vietnam and Beirut Wars, he retired as a Chief Petty Officer with a total of 24 years of military service. His thirst for learning was subsequently met at St. Leo College where he completed degrees in Theology and Psychology and Troy State’s Master’s program in Management.

He leaves many friends and family including: his children Marcus, Brian, and Rebecca; daughter-in-law, Renee Baer; cousins Allan and Elayne Goodstone, Carol and Allen Wendorf, and beloved grandchildren, Sandra, Kara, and Zachary.

During the last 13 and a half years with his life partner, Regina Karas, his new family included Regina’s son, Jay Karas and daughter-in-law, Dr. Monica Osborne, and Grandson Leo . Regina’s siblings , Elissa and Mark Weinberg, and Al and Maribel Goldin enjoyed the many stories Seymour shared with them. The nephews and nieces, Robert and Alana Weinberg, Dr. David Weinberg and Dr. Rachael Beckert, and Jeremy Weinberg have often retold some of Seymour’s travel tales. His lively personality will be missed by many.
