Stanley Francis Seidel
He was born March 29, 1930, in Mason City, Iowa, the son of Charles and Verneal Walters Seidel. Stanley graduated high school in 1948. Following graduation, he assisted his father in the local creamery. He then went on to become a certified sheet metal welder. He continued to work in the sheet metal industry until his retirement from Arizona Sheet Metal due his shoulder disability.
Stanley enjoyed traveling in his motor home, hunting, fishing and, most of all, spending time with his family. They are blessed with keepsakes from his talent as a silver and turquoise jewelry maker. He had a passion for softball and enjoyed playing it throughout his life.
Surviving are his wife, Lea Mae Hansen Roberts Seidel of Twin Falls; children, Debi Jacobsen of San Antonio, Texas, Brad Seidel of Mesa City, Ariz., Bruce Seidel of Mesa City, Ariz., Kimberly Withers of Canyon City, Colo., Dawn Seidel of Mesa City, Ariz.; five stepchildren, Linda Hunt of Buhl, Idaho, Dale Roberts of Paisley, Ore., Mike Roberts of Hagerman, Idaho, Rick Roberts of Rochester, Wash., and Evonne McCormick of Twin Falls; along with numerous grandchildren and step-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents, along with three brothers and one sister. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to his loving companion, Lea, for her love and caring for Dad in this difficult time, along with thanks to Guardian Hospice for its tender care and compassion.
