Seymour Byer, M.D.
Seymour Byer, M.D., 89 years of age, of New Britain died Thursday, May 21, 2015 at Yale New Haven Hospital. Born in New Britain, Seymour was the son of the late Louis and Rose (Ofstein) Byer. He was a US Marine Corps veteran of World War II, serving in the South Pacific during the years of 1943-46. Returning from the war, Seymour embarked upon his education, attending George Washington University, ultimately becoming a physician which he proudly practiced for more than 40 years in his home town of New Britain. As proud as he was of his service to country and his patients, he often acknowledged that his greatest achievement was sharing 67 years with his childhood sweetheart, "Rosie" and creating his five adoring children. Pa, as he was affectionately referred to by his grandchildren whom he loved and mentored, also had a special place in his heart for the family's animals. He leaves his wife Rosalie (Michlin) Byer; his sons, Jeffrey A. Byer of New Britain, Richard 'Rick' L. Byer and his wife Janet of Farmington, and Peter Byer and his wife Karen of Charlotte, NC; his daughters, Carol Byer-Alcorace and her husband Frances Alcorace of Naugatuck, and Alisa Germaine and her husband Steven of Guilford; and eight grandchildren, Gabriel and Alex Byer-Alcorace, Haley and Adam Germaine, James, Jack, Joseph and Claire Byer. He was predeceased by his sister, Phyllis (Byer) Levine.
