This is a place where we can remember Seymour. A place where family, friends, colleagues, drinking partners, sparring partners and anyone else he touched or influenced can remember, celebrate or toast him.
Seymour was a much loved partner, daddy and friend, a polar professor, space scientist, would-be airline pilot, lego lover, mountain man and proficient plumber. A man with friends all over the world, with a love of life and of living it up. Also a UCL man to his core.
He was funny, infuriating, great company, irascible, wise, wild, loveable, loving, and softer as a dad than any of us ever thought he could be.
Seymour was a kind, generous man full of life and enthusiasm. He had the energy of a teenager and engaged fully in life, packing more into 24 hours than I thought was possible. He had an infectious, good-natured humour bringing warmth wherever he went, while dealing with life’s awkward moments with good judgment and grace. He loved people. He went well beyond the call of duty in looking after his colleagues. It was obvious to everyone he loved his family very much. He did great science that is enormously, fundamentally important to many people and was humble about it. We have lost someone much greater than we know. He will always be a part of my life.
