Is this true about Seymour?
Sadly, it does appear so:
So sad, the Hobby lost a good person and a Great Ham.....RIP Seymour
Very sad news. I learned a lot from him just by listening. RIP OM.
Thanks for the many QSO Seymour 73 de Dave
I echo your words Vito !! Seymour was my wife's 1st radio contact as an amateur. This is a Huge Loss !!
We will Miss You Seymour; Lawrence and Jeanette (VA7LTX & VA7JTX)
Will surely miss his regular voice on air too. One of the few US contacts I had was with him.
I will miss his voice in the mornings on 20m. RIP Seymour!
I never had the pleasure of meeting Seymour in person but characters like him became on-the-air icons for me. He was a classic DX rag-chewer with a big signal and a commanding yet friendly tone that was a defining landmark on 20 meters.
Recollecting, it's hard to not lapse into a parody of him "...calling "CQ via the long path..."! "W6 Charlie Charlie Papa" will be missed.
Fortunately there is quite a rich collection of recordings of his QSO's by hams and even SWL's on YouTube. This is one of my favorites,

Seymour was especially helpful to me. He helped me get my ZD9 QSO! The ZD9 was very poor copy at my house, but excellent with Seymour and his magnificent antenna! So Seymour helped me work him for a ATNO!!! I would NEVER had made the contact without the very HELPFUL and Caring from Seymour!!!
BLESS HIM!!! RIP!
