Obituary

James M. Seymour, 72, entered into eternal rest on July 19, 2019, in Carrollton, Texas, surrounded by his wife and daughter. Seymour, as he was called by his friends, was born August 21, 1946, in New Orleans, Louisiana, the son of the late Regina Morgan Seymour and Charles Jules Seymour, Jr. He was one of six siblings, two of whom preceded him in death, Charles Seymour, III and Jeanmarie Seymour. He attended Joseph S. Clark High School, Grambling State University and Southern University at New Orleans. Seymour started his career as a teacher and then later as an evening program coordinator at St. Mark's Community Center, where he rose through the ranks, eventually retiring as Executive Director. His love of cooking led him to open Courtney's Deli and Catering. He was a member of the Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, Inc. and Tulane Memorial Baptist Church. James Seymour is survived by his wife of 50 years, Connie Robinson Seymour, his daughter, Courtney Seymour Thompson, his son-in-law, Omar Thompson, Sr.; two grandchildren that were the light of his life, Omar Jr. and Layla; his brother, Reginald J. Seymour, Sr. (Gerry); his sisters, Carmen Seymour Johnson and Rose Marie Seymour Cunningham (Larry); and a host of nieces, nephews, relatives and cherished friends. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Celebration of Life on Friday, July 26, 2019, at Tulane Memorial Baptist Church (3601 Paris Ave., New Orleans) at 10:00 A.M. Visitation begins at 8:00 A.M. Interment, Mt. Olivet Cemetery & Mausoleum, New Orleans, LA.

As I look back at my tenure at St. Mark's from 1972-1981, pivotal to our great success was the move that James Seymour made from St. Peter Claver to St. Mark's Community Center. His relationships, especially to the young people of Treme, still reverberate today.
All that is necessary for me is to see Wayne Kendrick at the airport, where he always reminds me of a most recent event or phone call from Seymour to one of his young people.
Seymour was generous with his time and resources. I honor him.
