Richard John Seipel

July 16, 1938 ~ April 1, 2022 (age 83)


Richard Seipel, age 83, passed Friday April 1, 2022. Preceded in death by his parents, Ervin “Ted” & Helen Seipel; brothers George and Dan Seipel; son James Seipel. Survived by his wife, Margaret; daughter, Teresa (Dave) Lien; grandchildren Ciera (Darius) Fletcher; sister Susie O’Reilly and Joanie (Herb) Reeder; brother Joe (Sheri) Seipel; many nieces, nephews and extended family.

After graduating from St. Charles Preparatory School he attended General Motors Institute in Flint, Michigan where he met his future wife and was married for 63 years. In years to come he became service manager at George Byers & Sons and eventually took a sales rep position at International Trucks. Upon retirement , not one to sit around, he was fortunate enough to get a part-time job at Home Depot in the gardening dept., which of course tied in perfectly with his love of flowers and plants. In his free time he also enjoyed camping, working on his cars, gardening, building and designing anything to make things easier around the house. He loved tinkering and using his mechanical skills to make things work the way he thought they should.
