EGREMONT — Donald William Seely, 75, of Fort Myers, Fla., died Sunday at home. He was a former Egremont town treasurer.

Born in Boston on June 14, 1929, son of George W. and Ella Kennedy Seely, he moved to Canada as a child and was a 1947 graduate of Saint John High School in Saint John, New Brunswick, where he was a leading Royal Canadian sea cadet, and in 1952 from Bentley College of Accounting and Finance in Boston. He had resided in Pittsfield before moving to Egremont in 1967.

Mr. Seely was chief accountant for the former Jenifer House mail order department until his retirement in 1987. Before that, he was employed by First National Bank of Boston from 1956 to 1965. While in Pittsfield, he was assistant vice president of the former First Agricultural Bank.

He enjoyed sailing in his hand-hewed sailboat, reading, antiquing, dancing, hunting and doing crossword puzzles. He was a member of the Egremont Rod and Gun Club from 1967 to 1971 and, from 1957 to 1965, of the Grand Masonic Lodge in Waltham.

He and his wife, the former Iona Elizabeth Curtiss, were married Feb. 12, 1972.

Besides his wife, he leaves six daughters, Beth Ann Seely of Fort Myers, Cheryl Lester of Walpole, Leslie Ioffredo of Chatham, N.J., and Amy Kroboth, Kimberly Murdock and Jennifer McGovern, all of Pittsfield; a son, Scott Seely of Peru, and 14 grandchildren.
