Messages of Condolence
My Uncle Ziggy was a role model as I watched him be a great father to his kids, my cousins, and someone I looked up to as a nephew. I should have paid better attention. He was wiser that I will ever be, and showed me that being a man of quality and grace, you could also have a great sense of humor. I didn’t always see it coming, and I think he enjoyed catching me slack jawed. I wish I had made it back to see him one more time. We all have our journey to complete. His spirit will certainly live on in his wonderful family. Our heartfelt love to all, and those who are there for the family.

I had the privilege of working with Ziggy for ten years. He was a consummate professional and a genuine human being. He really cared for the people he served and with whom he worked. Ziggy spoke often of his family and particularly his Delores. His zest for life and his mischievous humor live large in my memory many years later. Please accept my condolences for your loss.
As a friend of Carol’s, I offer my condolences to the entire Sobczak family on your deep loss.
I just heard of ZIggy’s passing. He was my friend, A wonderful man and I will miss his visits to my barber shop. We always had a lot of great conversation. Ziggy had a big heart. Rest In Peace my friend.
I will greatly miss you..
