Paul Matthias Seifert, age 87 of Prescott, WI, passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his family on September 2, 2020. Paul was born July 24, 1933, in Germany to Fritz and Wilhelmina (Vetter) Seifert. Paul came to the United States when he was 28 years old. In 1961, Paul was united in marriage to Linda Louisa Schwallick. Their marriage was blessed with 58 years, five children, Matt, Catherine, Krista, Linda, and Paula, and many cherished memories. Paul worked as a Pipefitter Supervisor for Pioneer Power / Koch Industries and was a member of the Local 455 for many years.

A dedicated husband and father, Paul worked hard to provide and care for his family. Appreciating the beauty around him, Paul took great pride in maintaining his homestead, gardening, and landscaping. Paul enjoyed the peacefulness of the outdoors and being on the water fishing. Throughout his life, Paul delighted in the companionship of having German Shepherd dogs as part of his family. Paul was fortunate to share many travels with his wife and family throughout the United States and Europe. He was a faithful member of Joy Lutheran Church in Prescott, WI, many years. Paul will be fondly remembered as a man of true character and steadfast devotion to his faith and family.
