Obituary

Joe Frank Seikel
Joe Seikel moved on to his permanent and eternal home June 15, 2019. He was born December 8, 1934, in Dale, Oklahoma to Leo V. and V. Opal (Dubois) Seikel. He became a baptized believer in Christ as a young boy and loved his Savior.
Joe graduated from Dale High School in 1953 where he was an accomplished baseball and basketball player. He enlisted in the U.S. Army that year and served for 10 years. Immediately after basic training, Joe found himself on a slow boat to Korea. Over the next 10 years he also served in Tokyo, Japan; Fort Sill, OK; Germany; Fort Dix, NJ; Fort Carson, CO; Fort Benning, GA; and France. Upon discharge from the Army, Joe worked as an apprentice for his uncle, Roy Seikel, at Southside Plumbing/ Heating/Air and earned his Mechanical License. From there, he and Don Hill started Hill and Seikel Plumbing/Heating/Air. In 1982, he left that business to develop land and build homes.
In 1955, Joe married Ruby Taylor. They later divorced. Their daughter, Gail Redd Givens (Larry) of Edmond, was born during his tour in Germany. Joe was very proud of his two grandchildren: Kelsey Redd McManus (Chad) and Austin Redd (Hannah) of Oklahoma City, as well as his three great-grandsons, Carter and Barrett McManus and Lincoln Redd. In 1991, Joe married Teresa (Robinson) Estep. He became “second dad” to her sons Scott Estep and Andrew Estep of Oklahoma City.
Joe was predeceased by his father, mother, brothers, Bob Seikel and Neal Seikel, two sisters-in-law, Charlotte and Joyce Seikel, and grandson, John Michael Redd. He is survived by his wife, Teresa, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters-in-law Detrea Liggett (Tom) of Indiana and Winona Seikel.
Joe Seikel had a generous spirit and was a pillar of strength, character, and integrity. A celebration of his life will be held at New Covenant Christian Church, 12000 North Rockwell, Oklahoma City, June 20, 2019 at 1:00 P.M. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to New Covenant Christian Church or the American Cancer Society.
