Francis J. Siegwarth, age 70, of Hilbert, peacefully passed away on March 14, 2021. He was born March 24, 1950, son of the late Wilmer and Eunice Siegwarth. On July 24, 1971, he married the love of his life, Patricia Juckem, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Hilbert, and together they had four PERFECT children.  

Fran had a great sense of humor, known as a jokester, and liked pulling pranks, especially on Pat. Once within their home, he put a rubber band around the sprayer on their sink so when Pat turned the water on, it ended up spraying her.  Meanwhile, in the nearby room he was chuckling to himself.  Another time, he gave Pat a scare when running into the house with blood covering his arm, only for Pat to find out he had poured ketchup on himself.  Their home was always filled with laughter due to the man with the big heart.  Fran shared his energy and zest for life with friends and family.  You could find him gathering with his close friends and neighbors to share a few drinks, lots of laughs and clever comments.  Fran enjoyed taking his children on camping trips and gathering around the fire.  He could be found playing a game of kickball or playing catch in the backyard.  Of course…..He was the first to give his son (Jeff)  a black eye while practicing grounders.  Holidays were his favorite time because he valued his family and loved having everyone gathered together.  The joy never ended, especially after Fran became a grandfather to eight beautiful, special ladies. He cherished being a grandpa and games of Go-Fish, 52 card pick up, and penny games became a ritual.  Grandpa Fran would bribe his granddaughters with candy bars while asking, "Who's Girl are you?"  Nearby, Grandma Pat would be shaking her head.  Fran was a huge Packer fan and was always ready for a round of sheepshead.  At supper clubs, he enjoyed brandy old fashioneds and liver paste while treating his granddaughters to kitty cocktails with olives or cherries.  He will always be remembered for his tasty homemade bread, rootbeer floats, and chocolate malts.  He had a passion for landscaping and working in the yard....sometimes waking the neighbors with the start of the lawnmower at the crack of dawn.  He took great pride in his home and Fran & Pat enjoyed making their visions come to life.  Fran made an impact on each person he met and had a love story like no other. His favorite girl in the whole world will forever remain Pat; he always loved taking her hand and having a dance. Fran lived a great life and his wife, family, and friends are grateful for the joy he brought within his short 70 years.  

Francis is survived by his wife, Pat; his children: Lauri (Todd) Krueger, Jeff (Kim) Siegwarth, Wendy (Todd) Wingers, and Carrie (Kevin) Tank; grandchildren: Veronica Siegwarth, Alahna Siegwarth, Leah Siegwarth, Austyn Krueger, Kayla Krueger, Alison Wingers, Alesha Wingers, and Mckenzie Tank; siblings: Mary (Jerry) Rosner, Dave Siegwarth, Bill (Lisa) Siegwarth, Carol (Mike) Schwobe; and sister-in-law: Barb Krepline.

Francis was preceded in death by his parents, Wilmer and Eunice; and brother, Ken Siegwarth.

Fran's family would like to thank Brillion Westhaven Assisted Living, especially Carl, Erica, & Grant, for all the loving care that was given to Fran and his entire family.
I always felt welcomed in their home. Fran always greeted me with "Well, hello, Sister Carol!" and a great big smile.

Thoughts go out to Pat and the entire family. Worked for Fran for 15 years at Briess before his retirement. One hell of a dedicated employee and boss. RIP my friend.
