SCARBOROUGH - John H. Seidel D M D, 90, of Scarborough, affectionately known as Harry, died on April 21, 2012. The son of Dr. John C. and Mable Seidel, he was born in Portland, the oldest of four boys, attended Sacred Heart, Deering High, Tufts University and graduated from Tufts University, School of Dental Medicine. Dr. Seidel served in both the Army and Navy Dental Corps during WWII and later with the Veteran's Administration in Portland. It was during this time; he met and married his wife of 65 years, Rita (Dorval) Seidel. Together they raised three children while living in Deering, Falmouth and later as long time residents of Pine Point in Scarborough. Along with his service at the VA, he joined and practiced with his father in Portland for 35 years. As a dentist he taught at Tufts, served on college boards, professional committees and was past president of the Greater Portland District Dental Society. Having retired to FL, he at 80yrs old, volunteered and provided dental care for migrant workers in the greater Naples area. During his life Harry enjoyed sports; lacrosse with the Boston Lacrosse Club, skiing with his family in North Conway, sailing on Casco Bay and especially golf on courses around the country. Harry and Rita were members of the Portland Country Club and Hide Away Beach Club on Marco Island FL. Through out his golfing career Harry shot six holes-in-one. But the greatest focus of his athletic life, for he and his wife, was attending as many of his children's and grand children's games and events as possible, always quick to travel any distance to watch a game, match or race. A life constant for Harry and Rita was their home in Pine Pt. First, with his parents and brothers Charlie, Bob and Bill and later with his family; daughters Anne Marie and Barbara, son John and in more recent years, with sons-in-law Craig and David, daughter-in-law Pat, grandchildren and great grandchildren. "Uncle Harry and Aunt Rita" were also forever extending invitations to cousins, in-laws, extended family and friends. He loved to sit in the back yard in the warm sun shine and be the first to announce a sea breeze, "Sea Turn!" and say with a grin, "feel that ocean air!" John H Seidel DMD is survived by his wife Rita, son John C Seidel and wife Patricia of Scituate MA, daughter Anne Marie Owens and husband Craig of Denmark ME, daughter Barbara Keene and husband David of Gorham, ME, eleven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
