BOWDOIN, E. Seavey of f Lynnfield, July 5, 2016. Beloved husband of the late Shirley (Widdowson) Bowdoin. Devoted father of E. Seavey Bowdoin Jr., Ann Bowdoin and Sally Bowdoin and her husband John Arruda. Cherished grandfather of Jennifer Bowdoin and E. Seavey III. Dear brother of David Bowdoin, Richard Bowdoin, Ann Greenly and John Bowdoin. Seavey was the loving son of Charles Bowdoin and Jenny (Burnham) Bowdoin. He grew up in Kennebunk, Maine and graduated from Bowdoin College in 1942. He remained a fierce member of the College Old Guard until his passing. Seavey was an active member of the Massachusetts Bar Association since 1949, and practiced law into his 90s. He was a long time resident of Lynnfield where he served on the Board of Trusties for the Public Library while also being a long standing and very active member of the Centre Congregational Church. Seavey loved his family, books, art, film, music, golf and a good scotch now and then.
Sad to see the passing of Seavey Bowdoin. Among other things he was a very knowledgeable Civil War buff and a star at the first two Alumni Colleges. Condolences to his family.
