Scott Seltzer, son of Jay C. and Jane S. Seltzer, went to be with his Lord and Savior Tuesday, January 17, 2023.
Many of us lost a father, a brother, and a true friend. Words can’t possibly capture what he means to us or do his life justice. On this side of heaven, he will live on as a local legend. Scott was a true man’s man, an undeniable river rat, and a proud member of Tri-County Boat Club. A retiree of Reese’s after 35 years and a graduate of Palmyra High School in 1972, he was as tough, cool, and downright funny as they can be made. Anyone that knows Scott knows that he was an avid boater, car guy, gun collector, hunter, and family man. He loved spending time with his wife Stephanie and the rest of his friends and family in Florida, at the river (preferably going 100+mph), sharing a beer and a story in waist high water, or on the deck of his cabin. He was always a side-splitting tale waiting to be told and an unbelievable adventure about to happen. He lived his life to the fullest and never lost his need for speed. His life didn’t pass by while he sat on the sideline, he was always in the mix, even serving several terms in public office as the esteemed mayor of Sandy Beach. He lived an incredible life and made unforgettable impressions on everyone he met. In his own words, he lived a full life. Above all of these things he was a man that cherished, and was cherished by, his friends and family. He truly enjoyed being involved in their lives and was always glad to talk about anything people he loved wanted to share. He had tremendous knowledge on so many things, and he could always seem to figure it out if he didn’t already know. He was a renaissance man at rigging things to work and never ceased to amaze with his creative “fixes”. Put simply, he was awesome.
He is survived by his beloved wife Stephanie, his sons Scott and Daniel, their wives Lihz and Sarah, his grandkids Josephine and Wesley, his sister Carol, and many of his great friends who are really family.
To say he will be missed is the understatement of the century. Scott was a one-of-a-kind and our world will forever be lesser without him in it. Anyone that knew Scott has a story and we look forward to hearing them at the celebration of life event we will be having in his memory. Dates and details on that to be announced later.
