Former Mattituck resident John F. Seh Sr. of Voorheesville and Lake George, N.Y., passed away peacefully Dec. 26 at Albany Medical Center. He was 69.
Born July 17, 1945, in Glen Cove, he was predeceased by his wife of 47 years, Pamela G. Seh. He is survived and loved by his daughter, Jamie Seh of Lake Mary, Fla.; his son, John F. Seh Jr., daughter-in-law, Kelly, and granddaughters, Olivia and Ella, all of Lake George; his brother, Col. Robert H. Seh Jr. of Jupiter, Fla.; and several nieces and nephews.

John grew up in Mattituck, graduating from Mattituck High School. He left Long Island for the capital region with his wife in the late ’60s, working for BF Goodrich Tire Company until opening up his own dealership, C & S Tire, in Albany. He later owned and operated Skyway Tours travel agency until his retirement several years ago.
Known to his family and friends as “Big John” and “Mr. Saratoga,” John enjoyed life, boating on Lake George, summers at Saratoga Race Course, and simply being around as many people as possible. His outgoing personality, friendly nature, and warm heart will be missed by many.
