Francis Xavier (Frank)  Seery, 79, was born July 24, 1942, Philadelphia, PA and  died January 29, 2022, Ocala, FL.  He was the son of Francis X Seery and Anna May Horning Seery.  He is predeceased by his parents and his brother Robert B. Seery.  He is survived by his wife of 55 years Margaret (Peggy) Kelly Seery, children Ellen Seery Ryan, Esq., Francis Xavier Seery III and William James Seery as well as nine grandchildren:  Angelique Choate, Conor Ryan, Thomas Choate, Gwendolyn Seery, Rebecca Choate, Brie Jarrett, Margaret Ryan, Laura Choate, Finn Seery, and three great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was a graduate of West Philadelphia Catholic High School for Boys and St. Joseph’s College, Philadelphia, PA.  Frank was employed by Burlington Industries for 30 years as a Territory Manager in Binghamton, NY and Canton, MI.  He was Scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 854 in Canton, MI for 20 years during which time he guided 24 young men to their Eagle Scout Award.  Frank was a Vigil Member of the Order of the Arrow. Over that period, he was awarded the District Award of Merit, Robert Rutherford Award and the Silver Beaver award for his service to Scouting.  He later served as the Summer Camp Commissioner at D-A Scout Ranch in Metamora, MI.  After retiring to Ocala, Frank was a Commissioner for the Boy Scout Troop at Blessed Trinity for a number of years and was awarded a Silver Fox Award by the North Florida Boy Scout Council for his service.

Frank enjoyed his retirement in Stone Creek in Ocala where he was treasurer of the Computer Club and participated in numerous other activities.  A survivor of Polio and suffering from Post-Polio Syndrome in the last few decades which caused him to gradually lose his mobility, Frank was well known in the community for his scooter rides around the neighborhood. He never hesitated to cruise up to a neighbor’s garage for a visit.   Despite being bed bound at home for the last 2 ½ years, Frank took great pleasure, prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, in visits from his friends and family.  Peggy, who took care of him at home, set up a table at the foot of his bed so he could still enjoy meals and visits with all who stopped by.

A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Frank loved the beach, especially the South New Jersey shore, and spending time with his children and grandchildren.

A Funeral Mass will be held Thursday, February 3, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, 5 SE 17th Street, Ocala, FL 34471.
