welcome

Ronald E. Seaman Jr. passed away suddenly but peacefully on Sunday, January 23, 2022, surrounded by his family. Ronnie had a keen wit and a kind heart. He was a loving father, fun sidekick, music lover, nature enthusiast and a devout Christian.

Although he lived in Bergen County for many years, he never lost his love for the Jersey Shore. From an early age he had a particular fondness for the Navesink River. He spent childhood summers quietly fishing and crabbing on the sparkling water, and later, when he was old enough, you could spot his bright orange hat in the cattails while he hunted ducks in the cold early mornings.

Ronnie was a graduate of Holy Cross School, Ranney School and Fairleigh-Dickinson University. He was a natural encyclopedia of knowledge and a bit of a health nut who could still appreciate the benefits of a perfectly executed croissant or banana cream pie.

Ron was a romantic who married Debbie, his high school sweetheart. Together they raised their children, Kellie and Craig. He was a present, hands-on dad who took his kids on meandering adventures during the day and tucked them in at night.

After many years working in accounting, Ronnie found his real calling as a true pet-care professional; sometimes he walked eight dogs at a time, cognizant of the needs and personalities of each. He was caring with the pets and thoughtful with their owners, often picking up mail or shoveling a snowy walk.

Ronnie is predeceased by his father, Ronald Seaman, Sr. Surviving are his daughter Kellie of Monroe Twp., his son Craig (Siobhan) of Nyack, NY, his devoted mother, Mary Meyer of Little Silver, brothers Michael (Rita) of Little Silver and Jack of Boca Raton, Fla, sisters Tracey of Middletown and Ginger Allen (Rob) of Croton-on-Hudson, NY, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Ronnie was dearly loved by his family and friends. We will miss him but are grateful he is with his Lord and with his father Ron.

Services are private. Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, has been entrusted with the arrangements.

In his honor, please go for that slice of decadent dessert and think of him when you next pet a dog. 

Please consider a memorial donation to the Monmouth County Humane Society, 2960 Shafto Rd, Tinton Falls, NJ 07753.
