David Seubert Obituary, Death – David E. Seubert, MD, JD, MBA, of Rochester and Manlius, NY, died peacefully on April 15, 2023, at Upstate Medical Center, surrounded by his beloved family. On April 11, 1961, he was born to the late David and Joyce Finnerty Seubert. For seven months, Dave, as he was affectionately known, battled pancreatic cancer.
While his sickness diminished some of his physical talents, it did not diminish his brilliant mind and heart, his quick and tremendous wit, or his frequent advice that we all adored. In 1979, Dave graduated from Camden High School. He received his bachelor’s degree from Union College in 1983, his medical degree from Tel-Aviv University in 1990, his MBA from the University of South Florida in 1997, his JD from the Western New England College of Law in 2005, his LLM from the University of Connecticut School of Law in 2015, and his CHC from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018. Dave worked in a number of roles after graduating from medical school until his diagnosis in October.
He was a Maternal-Fetal Medicine Fellow at Wayne State University’s Hutzel Hospital, a perinatologist at Baystate Medical Center, the Director of Obstetrics and Co-Director of the Regional Perinatal Center at Bellevue Hospital, the Associate Director of the Medical Student Clerkship, the Director of Clinical Obstetrical Services, the Director of the Medical Student Clerkship in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and the Division Director at Bellevue Hospital. Dave has worked as a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Wayne State University School of Medicine, as an Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tufts University School of Medicine, as an Assistant Professor (Clinical) of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York University, as an Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York University, and as a Clinical Associate Professor of Obstetrics.
Dave practiced personal injury law with Judge Robert Julian in Syracuse, New York, in addition to his outstanding medical profession. Dave had wanted to be a doctor since he was a child. Throughout his long career, he delivered hundreds of infants and served as a teacher, mentor, healer, and scientist. Many people were moved by his humility, and his heart was one-of-a-kind. He was the everlasting optimist and everyone’s cheerleader. He had a talent for telling stories and making people laugh. Everyone who knew him received his love, understanding, and guidance. He had exceptional sensitivity, intelligence, tolerance, and compassion. Dave was never afraid to defend his ideas or those who had been wronged, and he was recently described as “fierce.”
Dave’s sister Jill (Brian Gallagher) of Manlius, New York, nephew Jack Lamberton of Manlius, New York, niece Elise Justman of Havertown, Pennsylvania, and Aunt Jane Moore Price of Fayetteville, New York survive him. The representatives are Matthew Moore (Virginia), Mark Moore (Virginia), and Michael Moore (Fayetteville). Karen Justman, his sister, died in August 2021. He leaves a huge hole in all of our lives, and we will carry him with us in our hearts and memories for the rest of our lives. There will be calling hours from 3-6 p.m. on Friday, April 21, 2023, at LaRobardiere Funeral Home, 109 Main St., Camden, N.Y. 13316, followed by a Celebration of Life on Saturday, April 22, 2023, at St. John’s, Camden, N.Y. Following the service, there will be a reception at Oneida Lake Brew House, 6266 Lake Shore Road South, Verona, NY.
