John spent 40 years in the construction business, mostly operating heavy equipment. With the help of family and friends he built the beautiful family home in Brandywine, Maryland, known as the "Seibel Ranch". Many times, John would ride long distances on his 1947 custom Harley Davidson Knucklehead to cities such as Sturgis, Daytona, Ocean City, among many others. His unique personality palyed a huge role in raising his three children, who are all strong-willed and rich in character. John enjoyed working on motorcycles, classic cars, and everything in between. He was a skilled carpenter and intelligent in the way of math and geometry. He was creative, a fantastic cook and was always starting projects (sometimes finishing them). He cherished spending time with family and friends.
John, nicknamed, Sidebolt, belonged to a colorful group of like-minded motorcycle riding individuals called the Fools. Led by close friend Smilin' Fred Casey, they enjoyed many parties, road trips, and all around good times together.
John was a man full of heart, none of us fooled by his tough exterior. He was kind, hysterically funny, entertaining, driven, giving, and deeply loved.
We will be celebrating John's legacy with a memorial service at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Silver Spring, Maryland on April 13, 2019 at 2:00 pm. We also encourage anyone with motorcycles and classic cars to meet up at 1:30 pm in the old Burtonsville Crossing shopping center for a respectful ride together to the church.
