FAIRVIEW, Texas - William G. Seal Jr., age 66, passed away on Oct. 22, 2013.
He was born on Dec. 12, 1946, in St. Louis, Mo., to late William Glen and Juanita (Willmore) Seal. In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother Tim Seal.
After high school, Bill went on to Olivet Nazarene University serving as class president while receiving his bachelor degree in education. Following graduation he would marry Kathleen Nelson beginning a 45-year journey that would continue to grow in love and affection to the very end. He began teaching English in Racine, Wis. until being called to military service.
In 1971, he joined the Marine Corps where he would serve for the next six years. After retiring from the Marines as a captain he returned to teaching while completing a masters of education from the University of Wisconsin. In 1978 he would move his family to Greenville, Ohio, to enter the business world working for over 30 years in manufacturing sales.
Starting at Fort Recovery Industries he would rise to senior vice president - sales and marketing, and finally ending his career as president and CEO of Priority Plastics in 2008. After moving to Dallas, Texas, in 2006, he found his true calling in serving the Lord as spiritual formations minister for the Villiage Church where he faithfully answered that call until the Lord saw fit to call him home finally making his faith sight.
His love and generosity extended from his family to all that he met. His humor filled our bellies with laughter and our hearts with joy. His faith wrought a wisdom he shared with us all and his music glorified the Lord with every note. Words cannot express how full his life was or how big the hole he has left in each of our hearts. We miss you so dearly dad, papa, brother, and friend.
He is survived by his loving wife, Kathleen Seal of Fairview, Texas; sons, J.B. Seal and wife Traci of Frisco, Texas, and Nathan Seal and wife Sara of Loveland, Colo.; daughter, Andrea Seal of Dallas, Texas; sister, Bonnie Sloan and husband Ed of Thousand Oaks, Calif.; grandchildren, Brayden Seal, Dayley Seal, Ty Seal, Ellison Seal, Chaney Seal, Riley Seal and Judah Seal; and a host of other loving family and friends.
