Born January 20, 1923 in Hohenwald, Tennessee he was a son of the late Vardy Dove and Elizabeth "Myrtle" Freeman Seymore. He was also preceded in death by his brothers, Ray and Ross Seymore and sisters, May Seymore and Louise Barr.
He retired in 1985 from the Tuscarawas Branch of Kent State University and was the owner and operator of Carl's Barbershop in Dover for many years. Carl had also worked for Sam Koldin for 18 years.

He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, Dover VFW and Eagles and was an avid sports fan and gardener. He proudly served his country during WW II with the United States Navy. Most importantly, Carl loved being with his family especially his grandchildren.
