May 30, 1991 - Nov. 15, 2012

ELKHART Seth Bachtel, 21, of Elkhart, went home to his maker Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, in his residence.

Seth, a generous and loyal person, was born May 30, 1991, in Goshen, to William Bachtel and Maggie (Jelinski) Bair.

He was a 2010 Elkhart Memorial graduate.

Seth was an accomplished mechanic and worked for R-way Trailer in Elkhart.

He was a kind-hearted person with a pure heart for God.

Seth enjoyed nature, serving people, motorcycles and had volunteered for several years at Hero's Camp in South Bend.

Seth was an intelligent, promising young man, full of life and interested in everything. He was quick with a smile and an easy laugh. We will miss him greatly.

Friends may call for one hour prior to the 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2012, service at Belmont Mennonite Church in Elkhart.

Burial will be in Olive (West) Cemetery.
