5 Condolences to Ret. LCDR Richard Albert Seelbach

  1. Richard A. Redmon says:

    Richard was my best friend for two years. We had so much fun together swimming, shopping and just fooling around. I will miss our times together and his humor, his stories, and his kindness and concern for me so much.

  2. Susie Ellis and Dave Wildt says:

    Richard was a lovely man – generous in kindness to others and gentle in spirit. He always shared how much his family, and especially his wife, meant to him. We feel lucky to have known him, even only as members of the Strasburg community. His absence is especially felt at the Rotary meetings; he was long-standing and beloved member.

  3. Kay Mattsson[strasburg foodlion] says:

    Fred was a kind and witty man.
    My sympathy to his family on their loss.
    Rest in Peace Fred.

  4. Debbie Steppe-Food Lion says:

    We are really going to miss him at Food Lion. We always called him Fred because he joked and said he was signing the credit card slip as Fred Mertz. So after that he was always Fred, He came into the store just about every day and I will remember his smile and kind words. My deepest sympathy to his family.

  5. Jackie DeWitt says:

    Richard was a dear, great friend and I already miss him. I loved him very much. God Bless his family.
