Seymour Gary Susman, 72, of Atlanta, passed away peacefully at home on April 14, 2013.

CandleHe was born in Chattanooga, Tenn., to Sylvia and Hymie Susman, of blessed memory. He and his family later moved to Atlanta, and he graduated from Grady High School in 1959.  He earned his degree in real estate and insurance from the University of Georgia, where he was an active member of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity.

After graduation, he worked in the insurance business as vice president of Mutual of New York in Decatur, Ga. for many years. He then spent the rest of his career (more than 25 years) in the wine and liquor industry, first at Dixie Bottle and Beverage and then at Atlanta Wholesale Wine.

Seymour devoted his life to his family and friends. He will be remembered and missed by all those whose lives he touched. Seymour is survived by his loving wife of almost 50 years, Sue; his much-loved son and daughter-in-law, Steven and Lisa; his devoted and loved son, David; and two precious grandchildren, Asher and Miranda, who were the loves of his life.
