Eric Matthew Seibel

— Eric Matthew Seibel, age 24, of North Mankato, Minnesota, passed away on June 28, 2013, at Pathstone Living in Mankato. He was born to the late Gary Lee Seibel and Jeanemarie Margaret Seibel on January 29, 1989. A service will be held in his honor at Holy Rosary Church in North Mankato Monday July 8, at 1:00 pm.

 Eric attended Riverbend Academy and wanted to attend Bemidji State to study forestry. In Eric's short life he enjoyed airshows, downhill skiing, and spending time with his family and cats. He spent his life thinking of others. His final gesture to others was the donation of his body to the University of Minnesota for research, in hopes to advance cancer treatments.

  Eric is survived by his mother, Jeanmarie, sister, Barbara, and his loving nephew, Jack.  

  Eric is preceded by his father, Gary Seibel, and grandfather, Paul Lindemann.  

   Eric's wish was to have donations sent to the American Cancer Society, in lieu of flowers. Donations on his behalf can be mailed to 2520 Pilot Knob Rd, Ste 150, Mendota Heights, MN 55120 or by visiting
