WALDMAN--Seymour, noted labor lawyer and longtime partner in prominent labor and employment rights firm Vladeck, Waldman, Elias and Engelhard died January 10th near his home in Croton-on Hudson, New York. He was 82 years old. Born in Brooklyn New York, Mr. Waldman was a committed and zealous advocate for the rights of workers. Over the course of his distinguished 50 year career, Mr. Waldman was an active participant in the labor movement, representing clients such as the International Longshoremen, Tugboat, Transit and Bricklayers Unions. Mr. Waldman also served for over three decades as village attorney for his hometown, winning key court cases that led to the transformation of a fetid garbage dump into scenic Croton Point Park. An avid and accomplished tennis player, he and his son Dan were a top ranked father-son tennis team in the East and he passed on a love of the game to his other children. Beloved husband, devoted father and grandfather, a man of quiet grace, he will be dearly missed. A memorial service will be held on January 26th at 3:00pm at the Harmonie Club, 4 East 60th Street, Manhattan.
