Text size

Vernon S. Seibel, 63, of Strick Road, Danville, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018.

Born May 22, 1954, in Lancaster, he was the son of the late Norman H. and Rebbecca W. (Souder) Seibel.

Sept. 24, 1977, he married the former Arlene M. Martin. They have celebrated 40 years of marriage.

Vernon's love for the Lord greatly impacted the way he lived his life. He was a man of quiet strength. He loved and reached out to many people. He had a heart for not only his immediate family, but gave generously of his time, encouraging and being a friend to those in need. Vernon was involved in construction work for most of his life. He enjoyed tinkering in his shop, and being in the outdoors. He did not allow his work or business to take away from his commitment to love God and care for those around him. Vernon was much loved and will be greatly missed by his family and many others.

In addition to his wife, Vernon is survived by four children, Darren and wife Beth (Sensenig), Dawn and husband Matt Burkholder, Dervin and wife Lydia (Fisher), and Donna and husband Dwight Troyer; and 13 grandchildren.
