Gerald Michael "Gary" Seibert, age 67 of Sherwood, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, August 24, 2021.
Gary was born on June 26, 1954 in Hicksville, Ohio, the son of Michael and Monica (Peiffer) Seibert. On June 9, 1979 he married Marsha Houk at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Edgerton and she survives.
He worked for 40 years at General Tire, retiring in 2014 to spend more time with family and working in his beautiful yard. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved to travel the country with his wife and visit his children and grandchildren. He was a special grandpa "Bum". When he was with his grandchildren, he was a kid himself, running and wrestling with them. His greatest passion was his faith. He volunteered at his parish, St. Isidore Catholic Church, as sacristan, Eucharistic minister, music ministry leader, catechist, and helped the church in various other positions. He was also a member of the Holy Name Society and the local Knights of Columbus Council 1039. Gary had a huge impact on many lives through his kind, loving, and generous spirit.
Gary is survived by his children, Greg (Katie) Seibert of Cincinnati, Ohio, Maria (Brian) Pilarcik of Linesville, Pennsylvania, and Danielle Seibert (Adrianna Stollings) of Sherwood; grandchildren Lincoln Seibert, Michael, Samuel, Gabriel, William, Ezekiel, Magdalene, and Nathaniel Pilarcik. He is also survived by siblings Ann (Bob) Hindley, Janet (Mike) Plunkett, Pat (John) Lonsdale, Dan Seibert, Lisa (Jim) Found, Ellen (Bill) Wolfrum, and Sheila (Mark) Patton.
He was preceded in death by his father Michael and his mother Monica.
