Lester Wayne Seaman, Sr., age 76, of the Glendale section of Pittston Twp., passed away Tuesday at Regional Hospital after an illness. He is survived by his loving wife, Linda (Smerdon) Seaman, wed on April 8, 1965. The couple celebrated 56 wonderful years of marriage.
Born on May 7, 1945, raised in Old Forge and son of the late William and Betty (Williams) Seaman. Lester’s incredible work ethic began while working for his father at William R. Seaman’s Scrap Co. A career truck driver for over 50 years, along with working for Consolidated Freight and ABF Freight Companies, Lester was also an owner/operator at L.W. Seaman’s Trucking. Although his passion for trucking never ended, upon his retirement he developed a new love for motorcycles. Lester covered ground from the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota to Daytona Bike Week in Florida while making unforgettable memories with his family along the way.
He was also a member of the Acacia Lodge # 579 F & AM in Taylor. Above all, he loved nothing more than being around his family, especially on holidays or at the pool. He adored his grandchildren, especially his little buddy, Luke, and best described as one-of-a-kind. Lester has made a lasting impression and will never be forgotten.
He is also survived by his children, Lester Seaman, Jr. and wife Nancy of Moscow, David Seaman and wife Lisa of Pittston Twp., Pamela Evans and husband Edward of Old Forge, Larry Seaman and wife Christine of Avoca and Linda Wilson and husband Edward of Moosic; grandchildren, Rachel, Brandon and Emily Seaman, Jeremy Keizer, Denise and Edward Evans and Alexis, Tyler, Zach and Luke Wilson; siblings, William Seaman and wife Claudia of Old Forge, Robert Seaman and wife Carol of New Milford and Elaine Burchell and husband Donald of New Milford; and many nieces and nephews. Lester is preceded in death by his grandson David Seaman II.
His family would like to thank Drs. Thomas Roe and James Kosik for their care and compassion to both Lester and his family.
A blessing service is scheduled for Saturday at 10:00 AM at the Thomas P. Kearney Funeral Home, Inc., 517 North Main Street, Old Forge, with burial to follow at the Marcy Cemetery in Duryea.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Friday between 4-7:00 PM at the funeral home. Masonic services will be held at 6:00 PM.
