Harold "Hal" Charles Seiple was born September 30, 1950 in Nesbitt Memorial Hospital, Luzerne County, Kingston, PA to Harold Emil Seiple & Marjorie Hahn (Mathers) Seiple.
After high school, Hal became a police officer for a few years. He then decided to enlist in the Army and left after 7 years with an honorable discharge from Fort Bragg, NC in 1982. He then trained to be a firefighter which was a passion of his that he absolutely loved. He was both a fulltime firefighter and a volunteer firefighter for the city of Fayetteville for a number of years. He later transferred to the Fort Bragg Fire Department where he stayed until retirement in 2007.
Afterward, not to be one who just sits around, Hal worked as a security guard for Wackenhut at the Fort Bragg gates until their contract was discontinued. He then started driving cars for Enterprise Rent-A-Car until he and his wife retired together in 2019.
He married the love of his life, Marjorie, in October 1993 and this year (2021) they celebrated 28 years of marriage. He became the stepfather to Phillip & Matthew Spangler and raised them as his own.
He and his family joined Northwood Temple Church where both boys went to school and graduated from and both he and Marjorie sang in the choir and participated in Evangelism Explosion. During this time, he also went back to school and received an Associate of Applied Science degree.
Hal is survived by his wife, Marjorie Seiple; stepsons, Phillip & Matthew Spangler; sister, Phyllis Rickert and husband Wayne; nephews, Garrett Rickert and wife Kelly & Jeffrey Rickert and wife Elaine; niece, Melissa Walsh and husband Patrick; cousins, Janice Burgess and husband Dale, Richard King and wife Mary, and Raymond King, along with numerous great nephews and nieces.
