Carl was born in Hampton, Iowa, on May 4, 1930, to Leslie James and Emily Ethel (Murrow) Seiberling. He was the seventh of nine children. When he was very young, the family settled in Mitchellville, Iowa, where Carl graduated from high school just after his 17th birthday. On July 4, 1948, he met the love of his life, Hazel Riddle, and they were married June 12, 1949. They were blessed with five children: Carlene (Tom) Chebuhar, Donna, Texas; Evelyn (Randy) Worth, Pleasant Hill, Iowa; Steven Seiberling, Windsor Heights, Iowa; Dianna (Mike) Leete, Ashford, Alabama; and James (Linda) Seiberling, Mingo, Iowa. They have eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Carl was very active in his church, the Masonic Lodge, and retired from John Deere Des Moines Works in 1987. After retirement, he and Hazel wintered in Alamo, Texas, for several years.

He is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Hazel, his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He is also survived by one brother, Floyd (Dona) Seiberling, Mitchellville, Iowa, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Leslie and Emily, six brothers, Melvin, Gordon, Don, Jim, Ernie, and Dale, and sister Eolian (Oley) Griffith.

Thank you to the nurses and staff at Valley View Village, where he lived for the past several years. Also, thank you to Kavanagh House for the loving care they provided.

The family welcomes donations to Special Olympics Iowa as an expression of sympathy in lieu of flowers.
