      Text:  SHALEK, Dr. Seymour R. Of Boston, MA, passed away on September 5, 2012 at the age of 91. He was the beloved husband of the late Rosalind (Lyn) Shalek; a devoted father to Joan Nyman and her husband Phil of Andover, MA, Carol Yecies and her husband Paul of Sharon, MA, and Jim Shalek and his wife Nancy of Purchase, New York; a proud "Papa Sey" to grandchildren Eric Yecies, Jackie Yecies Levy, Alex Shalek, Nick Shalek and Peter Shalek, and great-grandchildren Tyler and Brooke Yecies; and a loving brother to Barbara Mallen of Newton, MA, the late Melvin Shalek and the late Helene Gamer. Son of Julius and Sophie Shalek, Sey met his wife Lyn as a teenager at Nantasket, where they later maintained a summer home. They remained married for 69 years, until her passing on March 2, 2012. He graduated from Chelsea High School, The University of Pennsylvania and Boston University Medical School. He served as a doctor in the Army during World War II, reaching the rank of Captain, and maintained a practice as a radiologist in Brookline. He was on the staff of the Beth Israel Hospital for 45 years, volunteered his time at the Boston City Hospital, and, in his later years, taught at Harvard Medical School. Sey enjoyed sailing, playing golf and bridge and keeping in contact with his boyhood Chelsea friends, which he did well into his eighties. He was a voracious reader and had an encyclopedic knowledge of world events and a great wit, which always made him engaging company. He and Lyn traveled extensively, often with their five grandchildren, and enjoyed spending time with them at the beach. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society , 30 Speen St., Framingham, MA 01701. Services will be held at the Stanetsky Memorial Chapel, 1668 Beacon Street, BROOKLINE on Sunday, September 9 at 10 AM. Interment immediately following at Adath Jeshurun Cemetery, 350 Grove Street, West Roxbury, MA. Memorial observance will be held at his residence immediately following the interment.

WE REMEMBER HIM At the rising of the sun and at its going down, we remember him. At the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter, we remember him. At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember him. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember him. At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember him. At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember him. As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us, as we remember him. When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember him. When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember him. When we have joy we crave to share, we remember him. When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember him. When we have achievements that are based on his, we remember him. As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us. ~ a meditation from Rabbi Sylvan Kamens & Rabbi Jack Reimer Burial: Adath Jeshurun Cemetery West Roxbury Suffolk County Massachusetts, USA Created by: Carol Bestick Record added: Sep 13, 2012 Find A Grave Memorial# 96992927
