Gordon M. Seely


Gordon M. Seely, 68, a resident of Redwood City for most of the last 61 years, died Saturday at his home, 831 Canyon Road, after a brief illness.

He was a merchant in Redwood City and San Francisco for many years, one of his businesses being a cigar store on Broadway for some time. In 1949 he became a financial resources investigator for the county Health and Welfare Department, retiring in 1964.

Seely moved to Redwood City with his family in 1906 and was a Sequoia High School graduate in 1917. He left school during the 1916-17 State Senate legislative session to work as secretary to Senator M.B. Johnson of Montara, returning to graduate later.

After that he worked three years for Royal Dutch Shell Oil Co. in Guadalajara, Mexico, operated a drugstore in San Francisco and for ten years the cigar and sporting goods store, called United Sales Agency, on Main Street and later Broadway, in Redwood City.

He is survived by a son, Dr. Gordon M. Seely of San Mateo, a professor of education and history at San Francisco State College; three brothers, George of San Carlos and Robert and Oliver of Redwood City; a sister, Mrs. Barbara Borghini of Cupertino; and two granddaughters. George Seely retired as San Carlos Police Chief two years ago.

Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow from Crippen and Flynn Chapel in Redwood City, with requiem high mass at 10 o’clock at Mr. Carmel Catholic Church. Rosary will be recited tonight at 8 at Crippen and Flynn.
