John Nelson Sigman

Tuesday January 18, 2022

John Nelson Sigman, age 74, passed away on January 18th, 2022 at Methodist Hospital due to Covid. He is survived by his loving children John (Barbara) Sigman, Lisa (Jason Narug) Skowronski, grandchildren Alexandra Idalski, Savannah Sigman, Evan Skowronski, and Carson Sigman, brother Donald Sigman, sister Anita (Michael) Church, and several nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his wife Mayda Sigman, her family, and his best buddy Bailey. He is preceded in death by his parents Ira Eugene Sigman, Clara Mable Sigman, his first wife Karen Sigman, sister Rosie Jones, niece and nephew Alexis and Christopher Jones, and several other family members.

John retired from his longtime job with the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions where he worked as a bank examiner. He also worked for several years part time at Strack and Van Til in St. John, J. Riggings in Hobart, and County Line Greenhouse in Hobart.

John loved sports, especially baseball. He loved cheering on his Cincinnati Reds, watching his grandsons’ play the game, and playing fantasy baseball with his son. He was also an avid gardener and had a natural green thumb. From spring until fall, you could find him in his yard planting new flowers, pulling weeds, and tinkering with his pond while listening to music or a ballgame on the radio. He was incredibly proud of his children and grandchildren and would brag about their achievements. John will be deeply missed by many.
