Philip Beverly Seay, 82, of Midlothian, passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 14, 2018. He was preceded in death by his parents, Philip and Loutrelle Seay; sister, Jenise Williams and daughter, Patricia Loutrelle Inge. He is survived by his wife, Janice Doss Seay; former wives, Ursula Emm Seay and Theresa Seay Morris; children, Philip Joseph Seay, Anthony Aloys Seay and Kathleen Jenise Seay; step-daughters, Kerry Power and Kristin (Doug) Saady; grandchildren, Victoria, Hailey, Emma, Caroline, Eva, Garnett and Mason. A life-long Republican, Phil loved his country. After serving in the Airforce, Phil went into engineering and became the vice-president of Inta-Roto, where he invented and patented a pneumatic core spindle for the web processing industry. An avid chef, Phil always outdid himself in the kitchen, much to his family’s delight. He was a connoisseur of food, particularly for sweets (his dentist will miss him dearly). Phil was a member of the Central Virginia Radio Control Club, where he would build and fly radio-controlled model airplanes. Phil was a man of few words, but when he did share he had a quick wit and was known for his dry sense of humor. After being diagnosed with Parkinsons, Phil often referred to himself as “the healthiest zombie around.” He loved his wife Jan, his children, his truck and scratcher tickets. Phil was always looking for new challenges and could usually be found tinkering in the garage. A memorial service will be held at 3pm on Thursday, April 19 at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Parkway, Richmond VA 23294. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the start of service. Because of you there’s a song in my heart, because of you my romance had its start, because of you the sun will shine, the moon and stars will say you’re mine, forever and never to part.

Celebrating the life of Philip Beverly Seay
Thank you for signing Philip Beverly Seay's Guestbook
To Doug and all of the family. For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun? And what is it to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered? Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance. "K, Gibran, He was so lucky to have a wonderful family and love. With deepest sympathy Auntie Bobbie.

My beloved husband of 41 years, Paul, worked for Phil for 18 1/2 years while Phil was the VP at Inta-Roto. Phil Seay was friendly, courteous and very professional in every way. He and Paul established a wonderful working relationship and Phil treated Paul like family. Phil was particularly happy and rejoiceful when he learned Paul was going to be a father after being married to his lovely wife for 25 years and Phil was instrumental in pulling together a huge baby shower of mostly men to welcome the new addition to be. What fun and joy we all had!!! Paul, Erica Lynne and I will never forget the many wonderful Christmas parties and the camaradiere that was shared. Thank you Phil Seay and maybe you can find Paul again and play Poker in heaven as we lost Paul unexpectedly October 17, 2017. To the Seay Family, Erica Lynne and I are truly sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Patricia and Erica Lynne

The last time that I have seen Phillip was early 1960s when I came to Richmond.
I remember Phillip well he was a wonderful individual. Phillip always extended a helping hand with advice at a time when I needed it most for me to get acclimated in America. I am sorry for your loss I will never forget Phillip and will always remember him.
Sincerely Karl Gunter Karthaus
