Jim was born Aug. 29, 1933, and raised in Dearborn, MI, graduating from high school in 1951.

His career included Continental Engineering, Federal Mogul and Cincinnati Millcron, working on the latter's sales force for 25 years.
Jim was a member of the Lions Club for 45 years. He was chairman of the sight and hearing screening program for the Cumberland County schools for several years. In 2005, he was given the Melvin Jones Award for outstanding humanitarian service to the club and the community. This is the highest award that can be given by a local Lions Club. He was also a devoted member of Christ Lutheran Church and Via de Cristo. He was in several bridge and golf groups and a member of the Sociables Dance Club. Jim was a real teaser and never lost his sense of humor. He will be missed by his many friends and family.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Lydia Seppala; sister, Harriet Graff; wife of 17 years, Shirley; and wife of 29 years, Marcia, who passed away Feb. 11, 2013.
He is survived by his children, David Seppala of Michigan and Kathryn Mischler of Ohio; and stepchildren, Britt Hollis and Holli Hollis, both of Michigan. He is also survived by five grandchildren and a sister, MaryAnn Masch of Michigan.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Lions Club of Fairfield Glade.
