On Thursday, April 7, 2022, our loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, Warren Mark Ziegler passed very peacefully in his home, surrounded by many loving family members.
Warren was born on December 2, 1943, in Orem, Utah, to Merle & Georgia (Tanner) Ziegler. He grew up in Orem, attending various schools, ultimately graduating from Orem High School in 1962. He received a call to serve a mission in Central America where he learned the Spanish language.
Upon returning, he attended Brigham Young University where he met and married his wife Janice Ann (Blake) Ziegler. They were married for time and all eternity in the St George Utah Temple on December 22, 1965. Afterwards, Warren enlisted in the military where he served 10 years.
Warren is the father of 8 children, 4 sons and 4 daughters. 5 of the children were born during our military service and time away from Utah. The last 3 sons were born in St. George after their return in 1975. Warren worked as a truck driver for many years traveling many miles all over the states. Often, he would take family members so they could visit many of the interesting places he went. He also trained and worked as an electrician. He had a zest for life and fishing. (He was known for taking his fishing pole on the diesel with him, and if possible, his down time while traveling was spent fishing) Warren loved to watch Disney movies while eating ice cream but fell asleep during every movie.
Warren could strike up a conversation with anyone. The first thing he would do is tell his favorite joke of the week. He always gave the best hugs and would help with anything you asked. Warren loved music, he could often be found dancing through the house, conducting the “band” while the music played full blast.
Warren is preceded in death by his wife, Janice Ann (Blake) Ziegler, his father Merle Ziegler, his mother Georgia (Tanner) Ziegler, his sister Dee Lane Mahoney (Vern), a son, Jonathan Leslie Ziegler, and a granddaughter Stephiney Ann Hughes.
Warren is survived by his siblings, George R Ziegler (Diane) Ivins, Utah, Shirley Olsen (Jim) Overton, Nevada, Lucy Harkins (Kevin) West Jordan, Utah, Charles Ziegler, Orem, Utah. His children Carol A. Hughes (Kary) Washington, Utah, David L Ziegler (Val), Sandy Utah, Sarah L. Pipkin (Fritz), Monticello, Utah, Amy R. Holloway (Gary), St George, Utah, Melinda M.
