It is with great sadness that South County Habitat for Humanity announces the passing of its Founder, Ted Seymour. On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, and supporters, we extend our deepest sympathies to Ted’s family.
While no words can adequately express our sorrow, the SCHH team is profoundly grateful for the opportunity to know, work with, and learn from Ted. In 1990, Ted, along with a handful of other like-minded individuals looking to better the lives of others, founded South County Habitat for Humanity. Ted served as Executive Director of the affiliate for many years and then “retired” but stayed on staff as a Construction Supervisor and consultant until 2017. Now, 31 years later, thanks to Ted’s efforts, 116 families have been served through homeownership programs and have a safe place to call home.
Ted was a transformative leader in South County, and was a well-known fixture in the community who dedicated his life to offering a hand up to those in need. To read more about the legacy he leaves behind and information on memorial services, please read his full obituary by clicking here.
