Heaven opens it gate to Dick Seelinger

In loving memory:  Dick Seelinger   1/23/1926 - 6/17/2012

Come celebrate with us the life and times of Richard L. “Dick” Seelinger, who passed away on Sunday, June 17th, 2012. Rather than mourning his loss, Dick would rather have us share a laugh or two, recalling his fine sense of humor and his dry “aged to perfection” wit!

Dick was a consummate outdoorsman and an excellent marksman who lived in the Akron area all of his adult life. He was born in Olean, New York January 23rd, 1926 to Richard and Dorothy Seelinger. He served in the U.S. Merchant Marines during WWII in both the Pacific and Atlantic theaters. Dick met the love of his life (that’s his wife Rita!) where she worked at the Lyn Theater in Akron, capturing her attention by giving her his watch and then striding off to watch the movie when she asked if he had the time! On June 26th of this year, they would have been married for 59 years.

Per Dick’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private memorial service for the family has already been held. Please stop by to share your memories, Dick’s humor, and the love that Dick felt for all at his calling hours on THURSDAY June 21st, 2012 from 5 to 8 pm. at the Billow FALLS Chapel, 1907 23rd Street, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Dick would want y’all to dress CASUALLY and wear a grin! And as always, he’ll have the coffee on for ya.
