Lamont ``Len'' Seipel Jr., chair of Wellesley's Library Board of Trustees, collapsed and died last night outside Town Meeting, town officials said.

Seipel, 61, had been scheduled to present a library budget presentation. He was rushed to Newton-Wellesley Hospital after suffering an apparent heart attack in the parking lot.

Seipel was a 28-year resident of Wellesley. He was a realtor, member of the Wellesley Players and past president of the Rotary Club.

``He was a wonderful guy. He was very dedicated to the club and to the town and he will be much missed,'' Rotary member Tory DeFazio said today.

Funeral arrangements were not yet final Wednesday afternoon.
