My condolences to all of the Seidel family. I have many fond memories spent playing football and baseball in Roosevelt park and basketball on all of our driveways as kids in Kimberly with Mark, the Kroner's, Cattinah's, and all the others. Over the years I have had contact with many of the students he counseled and they had only good things to say. One our last times together was after we flunked Uncle Sam's physical in 1968. Just saw this online in AZ.

There is a scripture that gives hope here at: Acts 17:31:"Because he has set a day on which he purposes to judge the inhabited earth in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and he has provided a guarantee to all men by resurrecting him from the dead. Isn't it comforting to know that Jehovah God has set a day for which he chooses to resurrect our dead loved ones! Please go to our website J W.Org to find out how this prophecy will be fulfilled....May these words bring you peace

I remember Mark Seidel as being a steadfast friend. Never getting too excited and always willing to be part of the joke or be the jokester. He was just a really nice guy and had his priorities in order. While I never knew him real well, it was the way he impressed me. I'll miss him!

Mr. Seidel was an inspiration to all. I remember him when I attended Theisen Jr. High school in the early 1970's and I now work at Theisen as a cook in the kitchen. He always looked forward to Turkey Haystack day when he visited in the recent years. May there be Turkey Hay Stack in heaven!Whenever we serve Turkey Haystack you will be in our thoughts. He always kept it positive.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mark was unique, always a hoot. He was passionate about kids and being a counselor to them at Theisen. I shared many a laugh with Mark and I appreciated his friendship. I'm sad he has died so young, but I think it was a life well lived. Point, match, set, and game to Mr. Seidel!

Mark, what a source of wit and wisdom, caring, loyalty and love. We've shared a lot of life from high school speech class thru Madison, careers to life, fitness to health issues. We even weathered the stock market. And despite what you think, I never had a hot tip I didn't share with you. Thank you for enriching our lives. It will be hard without you, but we're all going to try to keep it positive

Chris Demos left a message on August 17, 2017:
"Let's keep it positive" was the statement made every morning over the loudspeaker: I was lucky enough to have completed an internship with Mr. Seidel and you could truly see how the kids gravitated towards him! He always said that he never worked a day in his life since he loved his job so much and never considered it 'work'. He was just as lucky of a man as the kids were that surrounded him! I'm so very sorry to hear of his passing! He was a wonderful man who influenced so many in a positive way! My condolences.
Jeanne Halfmann left a message on August 17, 2017:

He made a huge impact on life. During my time at theisen middle school I was battling many demons. And if it wasn't for him. I don't think I would be here today. He checked on me daily at school. He was one of the greatest men.

Mark was always upbeat, positive and full of mischief! We met in 1985 when I began my teaching career at Theisen, and I so admired him and how he enjoyef the students and they enjoyed him. I also enjoyed all the giggling he, Nancy Pagel and I did during our years together tbere, and at the yearly staff banquet. The impact he made on the thousands of lives he touched will be felt forever! If heaven has a stock market, Mark is checking it right now! Love and comfort to Mark's family as they grieve this amazing man we were all blessed to know and love.
Judy Gerritts Canter left a message on August 17, 2017:
It broke my heart to hear of Mark's death. We've been friends since 1962. What a combination of great qualities Mark possessed...that incredible humor, caring, warmth, unquenchable good spirits, and unsurpassed loyalty first to family followed by his amazing wide circle of friends. And no one could laugh at himself like Mark could. It was such fun knowing you, Mark. Wish you would have stayed around, in good health, at least 30 more years.

Linda Gribben left a message on August 16, 2017:
I was deeply saddened to hear of Mark's passing. Having taught with him at Theisen I witnessed his passion for students, family, friends, and life. You could always count on seeing him visiting with students and staff on turkey haystacks day, even after he retired. He was a great role model and educator who will be missed.Mostly, however, I will deeply miss his smile and friendship. Rest In Peace, Mark.
