Jerry Seidel
To Alfred Seidel, the difference between him and his brother, Jerry, was obvious.

During his years in high school, Mr. Seidel and his brother led the track team with their skill. "Usually dad would come in first and his brother second," John Seidel, Mr. Seidel's son, said.
While in high school, Mr. Seidel met his wife of 57 years. He lived only a corner away from Kathryn Kalert Seidel, but his popularity in high school kept them apart.
"I figured anyone as popular as he and his brother had to be snobs, so I never wanted to talk to him," Kathryn Seidel said.
One night at a neighborhood ice cream parlor, mutual friends introduced the two. The couple dated for seven years before their marriage on Aug. 28, 1943.
"Her parents said she would be a young widow because of his diabetes, but that didn't stop her," Joan Seidel-Petralia said of her mother.
Mr. Seidel developed diabetes during his military training for World War II. The discovery of the disease led to his discharge in 1942, only four months into his military service. Battling the disease for 58 years, Mr. Seidel's experiences and advice to others earned him the cover of the Diabetic Voice magazine a few years ago.
A large part of Mr. Seidel's life was his career as a manufacturer representative for his company in Kansas City, where he was able to pursue his favorite pastime of traveling.
Mr. Seidel is survived by his wife, Kathryn Seidel of Ashland; a son, John Seidel of Salt Lake City; a daughter, Joan Seidel-Petralia of Ashland; and one brother, Alfred Seidel of Warson Woods.
