Bradley E. Seppala, 62, of Rindge, NH died peacefully in the early morning of February 18, 2022.
Born on May 3, 1959, in Peterborough, NH, he was the proud fourth son of Theodore and Shirley (Somero) Seppala. Raised in Ashby, MA, he attended North Middlesex High School.
After working in several different fields of construction he found his passion doing commercial roofing. He worked for Prime Roofing Corporation for many years, until 2001 when he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
He met the love of his life, Tracy (Stauffeneker) and they were married June 12th, 1982. They settled in Rindge, NH where they raised their 5 children; Sondra, Shylo, Shianne, Lindsey and Nikole. Bradley enjoyed spending time with his family above everything else. He fondly remembered childhood camping trips to Moosehead Lake, and later enjoyed family trips to Disney World and to the Ocean. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and will always be remembered for his wave and catch phrase “hi there” whenever they came into the house.
He was a member of the Apostolic Lutheran Church and loved his church family. His children will always remember Dad driving them to Sunday school and returning for church with pockets filled with candy for them. This continued with his grandchildren. They always knew where Buppa’s candy dish was and enjoyed Lindt chocolates at Christmas time.
Through his 21-year battle of MS he showed strength and courage and was an inspiration to all who knew him.
Bradley is survived by his beloved wife of 39 years Tracy Seppala of Rindge NH and their five children; Sondra (James) Andrews and their children Hailey and Oliver of Rindge NH; Shylo Seppala of Jacksonville NC; Shianne (James) Harris and their children Miles and Simon of Merrimack NH; Lindsey Seppala of Rindge NH and Nikole Seppala of Rindge NH.
