Michael "Tweezer" Seri has died. He passed away Friday night at the age of 90.
Due to the anticipated large crowd and inclement weather, Jowdy Kane Funeral Home says the family will receive friends at St. Joseph Church on Main Street in Danbury on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 from 4 pm to 8 pm.
He served as Danbury Town Clerk from 1979 to 2003. He served as a state representative from Danbury from 1961-67 and served as assistant clerk of the Connecticut House of Representatives from 1969-73. Seri also served as City Auditor, Commissioner of Special Revenue for the State of Conn., and other posts.
He was among four men honored at the State Capital in 2008 as part of "Danbury Day" ceremonies. His citation referred to him as "the most distinguished toastmaster in the history of the City of Danbury."
Seri was a longtime member of the Lion’s Club. In 2005, he made a presentation to the group reminiscing, reflecting and commenting on past, present and even future goings on about town, the political atmosphere in and about the community.
Seri also served in the Armed Forces in World War II.
A Mass of Christian Burial will take place Wednesday at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph Church in Danbury, followed by burial in St. Peter Cemetery.
