Act of Valor Winner Tom Seaver Diagnosed With Dementia
It is with extreme sadness we hear the news of Mr. Tom Seaver, our 2017 Act of Valor Winner, and his personal battle with dementia. The manner in which he conducted himself on and off the field earned Tom Seaver the reputation as one of the game’s finest gentlemen and a positive influence for children worldwide. We also know he was extremely proud of his service in the United States Marine Corps.” stated Peter Fertig President of the Bob Feller Act of Valor Award Foundation.
Tom will continue to work in his beloved vineyard at his California home, but has chosen to completely retire from public life. The family is deeply appreciative of those who have supported Tom throughout his career, on and off the field, and who do so now by honoring his request for privacy.
