L. Wayne Seiter
L. Wayne SeiterWheatL. Wayne Seiter 82, of Prospect, died Wednesday afternoon January 30, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born July 13, 1936 in Prospect to the late David and Velma (Almendinger) Seiter.

Wayne was a 1954 graduate of the Prospect High School, where he was active in sports and FFA, he earned his State Farmer Degree. He was raised in the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Prospect, in later years he was a dedicated listener of WMRN Sunday morning worship from Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Marion.

Wayne was a lifetime farmer; he loved being outside and working on his farm. This farm was a source of pride for the entire Seiter family, from all the different animals raised there to the Sunday night family dinners to all the harvests. Wayne still owned the first tractor he purchased for his farm.

He was also a Rural Mail carrier for 21 years. Wayne served his community as an Elgin School Board Member for 24 years, where he was able to hand diplomas to all of his children. He was also named to the All-Ohio School Board in 1990. He had served as a 4-H advisor.

Early on in his career he had worked with Johnny Long as a painter and at Whirlpool as a guard.

Wayne loved sports; it was a great joy for him to watch his grandkids playing sports and showing their fair projects at the Richwood Fair. He was a big fan of Bobby Knight.

Most people who knew Wayne knew that his bark was worse than his bite. He was also known to enjoy playing the lottery once in a while.

Bobbie and I have been friends for 81 years. When she started to date Wayne and was getting serious I was concerned he would come between us in our friendship . He not only encouraged us but put an A/C in their upstairs so I would be comfortable when I came in the summers.
He was my folks Mailman for many years. Dad became very ill and Wayne would bring the mail up to the door so Mother did not have to go out in the weather.
 My heart is with all of the family

The world just lost another great family man and great farmer!!  No one was prouder of his farm and his family than Wayne Seiter!!  He was a rare breed that believed that hard work never hurt anyone and that no one is entitled to more than they’re willing to work for!  I see this valuable asset in each and every one of his children.  I’ll miss his  no nonsense, matter of fact, way of expressing himself. Very respectfully, Julie Robinson.

Bobbie, Pam, Penne, Paula, Patty and Robert, Wayne was a good man. I spent many meals at your kitchen table and nights at your house growing up. I always said I was his 5th daughter. Robert, I know you don't remember those times because you weren't born yet! Bobbie, you and Wayne always made me feel welcome! I always loved playing around with him especially when he acted like he was going to sit on my lap! My heart and prayers are with you all! You all have always been special to the Shaffer family!

I am sad for the entire Seiter family and especially for Aunt Bobbie but I am equally moved by the outpouring of love that you are expressing for Uncle Wayne on social media.  He was the hardest working man I ever met, and while I remember being intimidated by him as a boy I learned later in life firsthand the he was very kind.  He took a genuine interest in what I was doing with my life and I enjoyed seeing him at the Richwood Fair and catching up before the harness races would start.  His connection to the Amish community fascinated me. I have fond memories of chickens and lambs and sprinklers at the farm house. Bobbie, Pam, Penne, Paula, Patty, and Robert, et al - I love you and am sorry I can't attend but my thoughts will be with you on Monday and in the next few weeks as you mourn his passing.

To all the Seiter family I send my sincere condolences.  You were one of the first families I met when I first moved to the area.  You girls babysat for my little ones as we lived around the corner.  I have so many memories of your family.  I remember a trip to Nashville with Wayne and Bobbie -- A great time.  Wayne and Bobbie tried their best to introduce me to David at Pam and Ben's wedding.  I guess it worked as I had 37 years of marriage with him.  I thank you for that.  Wayne was always helping others.  He brought David reading material when he was sick.  He was a special man and touch so many lives.  He will be missed.  God Bless all of you and surround you with love.  You have a close family and are there to support each other.  RIP dear friend.  Nancy

Bobbi and family, my earliest memories of Wayne go back to when you had sheep and Steve was working at Parrott's. Wayne found out that we would be interested in raising orphan lambs.  From that time forward, I think we were given the bulk of your orphan lambs.  Our children waited anxiously every night during lambing season for Steve to come home from work, he just might have a baby lamb with him.  Some of our fondest family memories were feeding bottles to these lambs.  I distinctly remember two, Snowy and Muffin.  They were all much loved.  This is just another way Wayne spread joy and love in the community.  Hold tight to your memories and share with one another.  May God grant you peace and comfort.
Sincerely, Marcie, Steve and family

My thoughts go back to early childhood when Wayne and I were in the same Sunday School classes, and then on to 2 years of Catechism at the Lutheran Church. He was a year behind me in school, but the classes were small so we knew almost the whole high school. He was a busy guy even then, and liked to tease. Also, your cousin Kirk Reed is my brother-in-law.  We are all blessed to have special memories of Wayne.  May the Lord continue to give you his comfort and strength as well as many more great memories.
