Scott Hellem

You were my favorite Mensch Seymour ... I am remembering our motorcycle ride out to Gillette, WY. for the BMW National Rally ... I will miss you Seymour ... Love you ...

Chuck Oler

To the Goldberg family, my deepest sympathies.
Seymour was a wonderful teacher and a good friend.
I will miss his passion.

Seth Captain

Seymour, you were living proof that age should never be a deterrent to doing something you love (or don't), and will serve as an inspiration to me for the rest of my life. Your unending knowledge of Beemer bikes, stories - oy, those stories - of Mies & the rallys & the old Albany Park & everything in between, those silly jokes & a refusal to admit when you were wrong will all be missed.
All my love, Seth

Nancy Goldberg-Long

Sincerest condolences to my family I so endearingly call the "Chicago Goldberg's". I have so many loving memories of Uncle Seymour, Aunt Cynthia, Liz, David & Jacob as a child growing up. Seymour was a loving father who wanted only the best for his family and worked diligently to fulfill his goal. He will be missed but will forever be in my heart. Rest in Eternal Peace Uncle Seymour!

Emmy Bates

Seymour was greatly appreciated by me for picking up, working on, and returning my BMW. His kindness will be missed. Thanks Seymour.

Fran OConnell

I first met Seymour when he had just â??graduatedâ? as a BMW M/C mechanic. His fine counsel and mechanic skills kept me on the road for many, many miles. I will miss him. Condolences to his family. He was a real gentleman.

Mike Bagby

I remember talking with Seymour many times when I was a member of the Chicago Region BMW Owners Association. He was always so helpful at helping me figure out how to keep my motorcycle running, and he did that for so many others. He was a great guy, and will be missed.

Kenneth Lively

Seymour, you were a wonderful Gentleman. Miles spent with you were always a pleasure.

Ben Robertson

It was my favorite Saturday ritual, waking up at 6 am on my day off and zooming across town from the south side to make it to Seymourâ??s shop. I met Seymour about 3 years ago when I emailed him about some old BMWâ??s my father had left me. He invited me to his shop one Saturday and we instantly hit it off. I remember I had on one of my old Mercedes-Benz work shirts, we got to talking about cars, he was schooling me on these old BMW motorcycles, it was a great time. After that I spent many more Saturdayâ??s there. Weather it was helping him fix a bike, or just going to Dappers for breakfast, it was among my favorite weekend activities. I canâ??t explain the comradary I felt, it was like hanging out with an old friend Iâ??ve known for years, a grandfather figure, Iâ??m not quite sure.... I know I truely miss you Seymour!! It brings me to tears just writing this now. My deepest condolences to your family. You are one of the coolest people Iâ??ve ever met. You will always be in my heart. Thank you for all the great memories.
