See updated report: Deputy Seeley Laid To Rest Following Ceremony & Procession
JAMESTOWN – Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Deputy Michael Seeley will be honored this morning at the First Lutheran Church in Jamestown.
Following the deputy’s service in Jamestown Seeley will take a “final tour” around the town’s he served.
He will be laid to rest at Maple Grove Cemetery in Ashville Friday afternoon.
The deputy’s battle with cancer was well-publicized via a Facebook page set up by friends and family. He was brought home Monday with a large procession from Cleveland, Ohio where he was receiving treatment.
Tiffany Kuschel, a Seeley Family Friend, told WNYNewsNow her daughter met the Seeley’s in Kindergarten. She’s known the family for 15 years.
“It’s good to know that he is home,” Kuschel said. “He meant a lot to this community, it’s nice to see everyone come out and welcome him back.”
Kuschel said that Michael Seeley was fun to be around.
“He was a prankster, always had a quick comeback and ready for a joke,” Kuschel said.
