CHARLES G. SEIPEL

Charles G. Seipel joined our Heavenly Father on May 8, 2017 while surrounded by his loving family at home. He was born in Irvington, NJ to the late Carl and Lorraine Seipel.

Charlie grew up near the water in Brick, NJ. He met his sweetheart, Lois at the age 18 and was married to her for 56 glorious years. After graduating from the University of Delaware, Charlie dedicated his full career to The DuPont Company.

An avid angler, sports enthusiast and family man, some of Charlie’s favorite times were family gatherings (Sunday dinner), fishing at the Indian River Inlet, and following the career of UD women’s basketball star Elena Delle Donne with his longtime friend, Mr. Bill Gourley.

He is survived by the love of his life, Lois and their four children, Sue Behrens, Tina McGowan (Dan), Chris Seipel, Jennifer Ruggio (Bob) and 8 adoring grandchildren, who will forever miss their beloved “Poppy.” He also leaves his brother, Bob and sister, Judy Graham.

A Memorial Mass will be held at 12:30 pm on Friday May 12th at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church, 4701 Weldin Road, Wilmington, DE, where friends are invited to greet the family from 11:30-12:30 pm. Burial will be private.
