Mr. Seppo Ala-Pantti
It is with great sadness that we announce that Mr. Seppo Ala-Pantti, aged 73 years, passed away on Thursday, May 10th, 2018 at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre with his family by his side.
Seppo was born on December 27, 1944 in Kauhajoki, Finland. He moved to Canada with his parents aged 12 and lived in Thunder Bay for the rest of his days. He worked at Provincial Papers in security for 30 years and continued to work in the security industry after retirement. He was married to his wife Jackie in 1977 and they celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in 2017. Seppo enjoyed spending summers at camp on One Island Lake, travelling around North America, driving his orange 1968 Camaro and talking cars with his friends, and most of all time spent with his family.
Seppo is survived by his wife Jackie, sons Eric (Lauren) and Kevin (Dana), and many relatives in Finland. He was predeceased by his parents Aarne and Lempi.
Cremation has taken place and a private ceremony will take place at a later date. Friends and family are welcome to drop in for a small visitation at the Ala-Pantti home on Sunday May 13th between 1pm and 4pm. Donations may be made in Seppo's memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
