SEADLER, JOSEPH QUINTEN SR., 79, returned home to the love of his life, Mary Lou "Nu Nu" Schnurr Seadler on March 16, 2014.
A man of many names, "Bint," "Ben," "Jose," was a graduate of St. Vincent de Paul Grade School (1948) and duPont Manual High School (1952). He played softball for the Heyday Club in the Shelby and Seneca Park Softball League and was on the championship team in 1954. He was a member of the Columbia Athletic Club and too many other clubs to mention. He was a veteran of the United States Army.
He was a loving father and formerly an active member of St. Therese Catholic parish where his children attended school. At St. Therese, he was the first and only male president of the Parent Teacher's Association, president of the school board, and president of the athletic committee. He coached little league ball at Germantown Ball Park, both boys and girls, for a number of years - and was many times removed from games for verbal advocacy on behalf of his team, especially when his daughter was playing.
He retired from The Louisville Ladder Company after 36 years of service where he had been the pitcher for the company softball team and was outstanding in the bowling league. He was currently a member of St. Brigid Parish.
He enjoyed a good time and hosted many a gathering where family meant more than blood relation. He was a Maker's Mark Ambassador.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Lou; his parents, Lorena and Paul Seadler, Sr.; brothers, Paul, Jr., and Charles; and sisters, Mary Catherine Steinmetz, Bernice Hairgrove, Rita Rothgerber, and Carmel Seadler.
He is survived by his sister, Bert Senn; three brothers, Herman, Don, and Richard; two daughters, Elise Just (Kenny) and Sheila Seadler; two sons, Joe Seadler, Jr., (Diana) and John Seadler (Tiger); six grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.
A Mass to celebrate his life will be held 10 a.m. Friday, at St. Brigid Catholic Church, with burial in Calvary Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 2-8 p.m. Thursday, at Bosse Funeral Home, Barret and Ellison avenues.
