Well before his knees gave out on him, CRR Ken Seaman was a force to be reckoned with—on the road, in the water, on the bike, or some combination thereof. Even with substantial discomfort in his knees, Seaman would often jump in a local 5K or two and go as hard as he could. He loved the beach life and often ran the popular Bottle & Cork 10 Miler. In his heyday, Seaman competed with fellow triathlete buddies CRR Chip Fletcher, CRR John Zolper, and CRR Willie Cain, who was his next-door neighbor and one of his best friends.
Professionally, Seaman had been an instructor and academic coordinator of clinical education in the Physical Therapy Program at the University of Delaware for over 20 years, a testament to his love of health and fitness. He had great passion for volunteering and outreach, which earned him the Jefferson Award in 2002 and the Volunteer of the Year award from the MS Society of Delaware.
Seaman had retired a few years ago and had had his share of more serious health problems in recent years. He was 62 and died at his home in Newark early this week.
