Published in July 3, 1996, issue

Fred Seyfarth died Nov. 3, 1995, after having been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor early in the summer. He lived in Whiting, N.J.

Fred was born in NYC, but his family moved to a farm near Princeton. He went to the Ethical Culture School in NYC, then to the U. of Wyoming in Laramie. He transferred to Princeton, where he graduated with our class in 1933. While at Princeton, he lived on the family farm.

His business career began with the Singer Sewing Machine Co. Later he joined the Diehl Manufactuing Co., where he worked until retirement. He had lived in Whiting, N.J., for 23 years at the time of his death.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Estelle Beauregard Seyfarth, a son, Jay, and two daughters, Ruth Carper and Carol Ann Bassett, who helped with this notice and who report that his family was grateful to him for wisdom and advice and the fact that he was always there when they needed him.

If a family member is interested, I bought a J.F. Seyfarth milk bottle from the family dairy.
