James D. Seidl

April 21, 1955 — February 23, 2024

Oshkosh

James D. Seidl, age 68 of Oshkosh, passed away peacefully at Ascension Mercy Hospital on Friday, February 23, 2024 due to heart failure. Jim was born on April 21, 1955, to the late David and Lois (Roebke) Seidl in Oshkosh. He was united in marriage to Connie Pierce on September 17, 1977 and together raised two children.

A natural storyteller with a sharp wit, Jim could keep a room entertained for hours with his anecdotes and jokes; this made his career as a route salesman a perfect fit for many years. 

Jim’s strong faith was a guiding light in his life, which got him through both joyous and challenging times. Jim's love for his children and grandchildren knew no bounds, and he found immense happiness in their company. 

His love for fishing was evident, and he cherished his time spent on fishing trips with his buddies, especially when trout fishing. 

Jim's passion for history, particularly the WWII and Civil War eras, fueled his love for visiting historical sites like Gettysburg. Having a special connection to the Southwest, Jim cherished the region's beauty and culture.

Jim will be forever cherished by his “Honey Bunny”, Connie Seidl; children, Kelly (Joel) Nesbit and Michael (Valerie) Seidl; grandchildren, Violet Nesbit, Dylan and Grayson Seidl; sisters, Julie (Tim) Matsche and Janet (Mark) Leichtnam; sisters-and-brothers-in-law, Tori Seidl, James (Blanca) Pierce, and Susie (Curt) Knight; aunt Noreen Schumacher, and uncle Ronald “Butchy” Roebke. Jim is further survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Jeffrey Seidl; father-and-mother-in-law, Glenn and Marjorie Pierce.

A funeral service for Jim will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 2, 2024 at Konrad-Behlman Funeral Home-Westside, 100 Lake Pointe Dr. with Fr. Joe Mattern officiating. Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 3:00 p.m. until the time of the service.
