James Leonard Seuntjens

May 5, 1936 ~ January 9, 2020 (age 83)


James Leonard Seuntjens, 83, went home to be with his Lord on January 9th, 2020 surrounded by his family. James was one of six children born to John and Kathryn Seuntjens. He was raised in the small town of Kingsley, Iowa, where he was active in his church, school and helping on the farm. It was after graduating from high school that he married his first wife, Roberta Wormley, received a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting at Morningside College, then moved to Nebraska to pursue his career and raise a family. He has four children; Debbie, Rodney, Rene and David from his first marriage of eleven years.

Forty-seven years ago he married his beloved wife, Carol, and was blessed with another daughter, Kathie. He maintained his career as an Executive Accountant and managed a 300-acre hobby farm with over 100 head of cattle in Minnesota. He retired from Control Data Corporation at age 50 and moved to Florida. In the next thirty-three years he remodeled homes, built furniture and opened The Seasons and Camellia House Antiques.

He was able to travel the world to vacation and spend time with his children and grandchildren. James gave experiences rather than gifts and time instead of treasures. He believed that his life was blessed with the help of God, his wife, children, family and friends.

James was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, and two brothers.

He is survived by his wife, Carol, and his five children; Debra Greer (Alan), Rodney Seuntjens, Rene Seuntjens, Kathie Letellier and David Seuntjens (Dawn). He is also survived by ten grandchildren; Becky, Eric, Jacob, Hunter, Samantha, Raleigh, Bradley, Bryce, Emily and Harrison; and three great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother, Tom Seuntjens (Alice).

A Funeral Mass will be held at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church on Thursday, January 16th, 2020 at 9:00AM, followed by a burial service at Good Shepherd Memorial Gardens.
