Wayne Seppeler

OBIT Wayne Seppeler onlineWayne Clarence Seppeler, an only child of Alice Archer and Clarence Seppeler, and husband of Mary Bendlin for 62 years, entered eternal life with the Lord on July 16, 2018, surrounded by family. Wayne was born on June 26, 1930, in Toledo, Ohio, and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Toledo, Ohio, where he met Mary Bendlin in the Lutheran Student Association. Wayne began going to church in the sixth grade when a friend invited him, and he continued thereafter. He subsequently obtained a Master's in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, and an MBA from Santa Clara University. Wayne worked for Philco Ford, Lockeed, and Anderson Jacobson, as an engineering manager and VP for many years. Wayne and Mary had four sons Wayne was so proud of: Eric, Matthew, Chris, and David, and one granddaughter, Sienna.

Wayne was a devoted husband and father who would always help his wife and children above all else. Wayne was an active member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Los Altos for over 60 years, as Wayne had a very strong faith, setting examples daily of the way to live ones life, selfless. The church was a home for Wayne and Mary where they met many of their best friends. He left a legacy of love to all who knew him and was always willing to lend a hand to others, and talk to anyone with a smile. Services have been held.
