Myron Albert Seward
Myron Albert Seward, 92, of Basom, NY passed away peacefully at Premier Genesee Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Batavia, NY on January 31, 2021. He was born April 22, 1928 to the late Wellington and Edith Seward in Bergen, NY.
Myron was proud to be a lifelong farmer. As a young man he worked at the family’s dairy and crop farm as well as their milk hauling business in Bergen. In 1951 he married the love of his life, Ethelyn Sumeriski. They moved to their own farm in Basom, NY where they lived, farmed and raised a family together for the next 55 years. Myron was predeceased by Ethelyn in 2006.
Myron loved farming and his family. He loved people, and enjoyed reminiscing about farm life, times gone by and the way things used to be done! He could, and would, talk with anyone he met, always regaling them with a farming or milk hauling story. His family and friends will be able to retell some of his favorite stories for years to come! Myron was a kind and gentle man who will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
Myron is survived by his children; daughter Brenda Seward of Basom, son George Seward and his wife Cricket Johnson- Seward of Basom, grandsons- Elias (Catherine) Seward of Oakfield and Noah (Niki) Seward of Attica, greatgrandchildren- Tyler, Sydney, Cade and Paxton. Myron was predeceased by his younger brothers, Norman and Gordon.
