Providing Joy and Meaning for Florida Seniors

Seymour was born in Cambridge, Massachusets in 1927. He grew up and went to public school in the Boston area. He also attended Temple Beth El Hebrew school. During WWII he served as a bugler in the U.S. navy for a funeral detail. Seymour got married in 1953 and had three boys. Two now live in Florida and one lives in Connecticut. He is also a proud grandfather of seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren. While living in Massachusetts, Seymour worked as a screen printing salesman. In 1979, he moved to Florida and became a chef at the Marriott Hotel. Seymour’s wife passed away three years ago and then he entered a nursing home in Hollywood. He recently arrived at the West Broward Rehabilitation center where he started coming to my classes. The first thing I noticed about my new friend is he does not seem anywhere near his age. Although confined to a wheelchair, he is as lucid as any middle aged adult. He is a pleasure to have in my class!
