Kenneth “Ken” L. Seiler, 82, Merrill died Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014, at his home.

He was born Oct. 16, 1931, in Marshfield, son of the late Arnold and Elsa (Borth) Seiler. On April 25, 1959, he married Sylvia Knash in Boulder Junction. She survives. 

For more than 29 years Ken worked in the Special Delivery Department at the Wausau Post Office and was the owner/operator of the former Town & Country Bar in Wausau. Ken was an avid fisherman and hunter and enjoyed the time he spent with his family at their cottage on Gilmore Lake and all the memories he made while hunting and fishing with his son, Gary.

Ken was always known to have his lawn in perfect condition, up north and at home. He and Sylvia enjoyed their summers together up north and their winters down south in Naples, Fla.

Ken proudly served his country in the United States Navy from 1952 until 1956.
