William Joseph Seiter, 86, died on June 23, 2019 after a courageous 23-year battle with Parkinson’s Disease. He passed peacefully, surrounded by his family, and fortified with the last sacraments. Bill was the loving husband of Mary Seiter, sharing their lives for 62 years. Bill was the devoted father of William (Jo), Tom (Christy Board, deceased), Jim, Gary, Patty (Mike) Laber, Susan (Rob) Woods, Mary Beth (Tony) Zechella, and grandfather of 15: William, Erik, Maddie, Reid, Ben, and Elizabeth Seiter, Ryan and Allison Laber, Luke, Christian, Isaac, and Alex Woods, Michael, Maria, and Anna Zechella.

Mary and family Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We knew you only a short time but was enough to know you are an inspiration and ray of light to those whose lives you touch. Each time we pass the corner table at Carmel Manor we will think of you.
