Jack Alfred Seed, QC BA

December 8, 1915 – December 11, 2012

Lawyer, Teacher, Father, Grandfather, Great-Grandfather, WWII Veteran

Jack Seed and the girlsWith deepest sorrow, we wish to announce the passing away peacefully of our father Jack Alfred Seed on December 11 at his Toronto home, three days after celebrating his 97th birthday.

With characteristic initiative, steadiness, determination and vision Jack had used his birthday to bring family members together to deal with outstanding issues and set a course for the future.

Jack leaves his loving wife Peggy (nee Margaret Doreen Jackson) of 68 years, his four children Tony, Deborah, John and Julia (Will McIlvride), all of Toronto; five grandchildren Martin (of Atlanta), Thomas (Alex), Nicholas, Catherine and Jennifer (of Toronto); great granddaughter Makenna (of Burlington); and nieces Nancy (Tom) Crawford of Collingwood and Sandra (Don) Hammersmark (of Los Angeles).  Predeceased by his brother Arnold (Monnie), and parents W.A. and Elizabeth Helena Seed. Jack was fortunate to have Marissa Gimena, devoted caregiver in his final years, as well as Lida Muguerza. Jack also leaves his special buddy, Winston the cat (his “good little fella”).

Since learning of the sad news, we have been discussing the significance of Jack Seed’s contributions to the solidarity of the family and to Canadian society.

Please come and join us at his funeral on Wednesday, December 19, St. James Cathedral, 106 King Street East, 11 a.m., as well as our reception in the Neill Room to commemorate, discuss and honour his life and work.

In lieu of flowers, friends and colleagues may wish to remember him with a donation to the Jack A. Seed, Q.C. Award at the Osgoode Hall Law School of York University or to the Trinity College Library.

 “Carry on, Canada.”

The grandchildren are establishing a memorial page at http://www.facebook.com/JackASeed
