Kenneth was born on June 7, 1936 to Ed and Margaret (Ducshner) Seppelt. He was united in marriage to Doreen Billmeyer on January 7, 1961 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Pierz. He proudly served in the Army from 1955 to 1957 in Korea. He worked for Adolfson and Peterson Construction from 1959 to 1995 as a superintendent on many buildings throughout the Twin Cities.
He had many hobbies including woodworking projects that he would give as gifts. He also enjoyed gardening, starting many trees from the seeds he would gather here and there. We now have these trees that he would share with family and friends. Nothing would light up the room for him as when his granddaughters, Hannah and Sarah, would walk in and throw their arms around him.

Doreen, Carol and family, Keith:
I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Kenny was a wonderful, decent man who loved and enjoyed people. He had a hearty laugh that made you laugh. I will miss him. God, rest in peace. If there is anything I can do, I will be glad to help.
Patty (Trail) Johnson says
To the Seppelt family,
Kenny will always be remembered by me and my family as a wonderful friend and neighbor. Always willing to lend a hand. Someone who would give you the shirt off his back. My last memory of Kenny was last June when my sister and I were making a 40th birthday video for our brother Chuck. The video would not have been complete without Kenny, Doreen, and Keith. The time we spent at your house was such fun. Even though Kenny didn’t want to wear the goofy birthday hat we had for the video he did it anyway “only because it’s for Chuck”. I’m sure Chuck will always treasure that bit of footage as much as I’ll treasure the time spent with all of you in making it.
My heart goes out to you all in this time of great sadness. The world is alittle less bright now that Kenny is no longer here. Wishing you peace and comfort, solace and strength to get you through this difficult time.

Sis Doreen,Niece Carol, Nephew Keith,
We wish to extend to your family our deepest sympathy. Kenny was a Brother-In- Law that I greatly admired and loved.When I joined the Army in 1963 and flew into the Cities, Kenny was eager to pick me up .Each time Jeanne and I came home on furlough He greeted us and ask all about the Army and our adventures. He served during Korea,so we could easily share memories about the Service, When we came to visit in Isanti He was eager to show us his property and the deer he had in the yard.He was always ready to offer Jeanne and me a cold beer on a hot day.The last time he took us in his shop and showed us all the favorites he was working on.Such great talent as you could see from a Construction guy only as myself.Doreen,Carol and Keith he will truly be missed as my favorite Brother-in law,The next time we come to Isanti,Doreen will be in his place to offer us a cold beer and enjoy Doreen’s tasty chicken dinner. May God bless each of you in this time of sadness. With love Jeanne n Jerry Billmeyer of Sierra Vista, Arizona
