OCEAN PINES — Terrence J. Seymour of Ocean Pines passed away on May 2, 2021.

Born March 11, 1945 in Elmira, N.Y., he was the son of the late Raymond and Katherine Seymour of Ambler, Pennsylvania. He is survived by his brother, Daniel Seymour of Palm Springs, Calif.; son, Thomas Seymour and his wife Sara Collins of Carrollton, Va.; daughter Jessica Seymour Burlew and her husband Scott Burlew of Toms River, N.J.; and five grandchildren, Ella, Evelyn, Adelyn, Cordelia and Hannah.

A Vietnam-era Navy veteran, teacher, and published author, Terry earned a B.A. from St. Francis College, an M.A. from the University of Dayton, and an M.A. from Jersey City State College (now New Jersey City University). He taught English in the Glen Ridge, N.J. schools for many years, where he liked most of the kids and hated all the administrators who crossed his path.

After retiring and moving to Ocean Pines, which suited him much better, Terry enjoyed sitting on the beach with piles of books and the New Yorker, entertaining the ladies of Delmarva, drinking really cheap beer, chatting up everybody he met around town, reading the Wall Street Journal at the Worcester County Library Ocean Pines Branch, investing, gardening, arguing with his son about anything and everything and visiting with all his granddaughters.

He was taken by myelodysplastic syndrome, but before that he looked much younger than his years and was able to live on his own up until the very last week of his life, which he really wanted everyone to know. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Condolences and memories may be sent to the family online at
