It is with sadness ATPAM announces the death on May 24 of Retired Gold Card Manager Richard ‘Dick’ Seader who was living at the Actors Fund Home in Englewood, New Jersey. Brother Seader was 91 years old and had been a member of ATPAM since 1956. His longevity as a member was only exceeded by his dedication and devotion to the Union, where he served for many years on the Board of Governors and also as a Trustee to the Union’s benefit funds.
Among the Broadway productions Brother Seader managed were: Welcome to the Club, So Long on Lonely Street, Brightower, We Bombed in New Haven, P.S. I Love You, The White House, Enter Laughing, The Wall and Toys in the Attic. He also served as Producer on the following productions: Swinging on a Star, Shimada, Oh, Coward! and Dancing in the End Zone.
Dick was married for over 40 years to the Irish singer and Broadway actress Sylvia O’Brien, whom he met while playing cello in an orchestra with which she was performing.
Brother Seader is survived by three nephews and their families.
He will be missed.
