Obituary for Lee Earnest Seltzer Sr.

In Loving Memory
In the early morning on March 1, 2020, the Angle of God whispered:
Come now and take your rest

The life of Deacon Lee Earnest Seltzer Sr. began on September 18,1933 in Safford Alabama to the late Walter and Irene Etheridge Seltzer. He was a lifelong resident of Prichard Alabama. The Lord decided to swing down his chariot and provide rest for the weary on March 1, 2020 at North Mobile Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. He dispatched his angels and took our loved one to his eternal resting place.
Deacon Lee Earnest Seltzer, Sr. was united in holy matrimony to the late Essie Mae Seltzer, a union that nurtured the loves of five biological children and a nephew. He accepted Christ at an early age and lived a respectful life in his community. He united with Greater Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church over 60 years ago where he served as a Sunday School Teacher and Superintendent. He worked for South Central Bell now AT & T for 38 years until his retirement in April 1995. He was also a member of the Order of Masons. He remained an active in church until his health prevented him from attending. He was preceded in death by his loving wife Sister Essie Mae Seltzer, less than two months ago, eldest son Lee Earnest Seltzer Jr, mother and father, sister Essie Mae Seltzer Winchester, and brothers Samuel and Benjamin Seltzer.
He leaves to cherish five loving children: Evelyn Juanita Seltzer, Prichard AL; Shirley Ann Seltzer (Skip) Ragler, Grand Prairie, TX; Norman Lee (Kassmin) Seltzer, Wilmington, DE; Daniel Maurice Seltzer, Prichard AL; James Edward (Kathy) McCampbell, Hinesville, GA. In addition to his children, he also leaves to cherish six grandchildren, devoted cousins: WC Miller, Deacon Roosevelt Hall of Englewood, NJ, Sally and Gunzie of Pennsylvania, two devoted nieces and nephews Carolyn D. Winchester Tenner, Bonita Jennings, Charles Jr. and Ronald Winchester and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors. Although our hearts are heavy, we obtain peace in the words of the poem He Only Takes The Best
God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around him and whispered, “Come with me.”

With tear-filed eyes we watched him suffer and fade away.
Although we loved him deeply, we could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
