Steven Siegling, age 45, of Sarasota, Florida, passed away Wednesday, March 13, 2019, from an aneurysm. His memorial service was held at 11:00 AM, Thursday, March 21st at the First Presbyterian Church at Wessington.
Steven David Siegling was born on May 13, 1973, to David and Kathy (Rediger) Siegling. He grew up in Wessington, South Dakota and graduated from Wessington High School. He was especially active in music and using his speaking skills. He served as an announcer for school, church and community events and won awards for drum competition, oral interp and plays. His portrayal of “Zorro” in a comedic play brought eruptions of laughter and is still on tape to enjoy.
As a high school job, he worked for local bee keeper “Casavan Apiaries” and enjoyed the experience of taking bees to Texas. He helped on the family farm, but that was not his calling. He went in to sales for Radio Shack, ultimately managing two of their largest stores. After a Rediger family vacation to Disney World, he fell in love with Florida and relocated there. Wessington was his hometown and he came back for a short while, but business took him back to Florida. He owned a sales and marketing firm and while traveling across the country, he gained many friends and close associates.
In 2004, he married Holly Rider and they had one daughter, Sophie Noelle, born December 8, 2011.
Besides anything and everything to do with his young daughter and spending time with family, his passions were golfing and off shore fishing. When time allowed, he sold boats and helped charter Gulf of Mexico fishing trips.He was organizing such a trip for his parents, who were flying in on Saturday to spend time… but time ended on Wednesday instead.
As the oldest grandchild he loved being with the adults; especially his grandparents and Great Aunt Myra “Suse” and Maurice Christian. His favorite bible, given to him by his Aunt Luann, was often opened to “Timothy.”
Steven is survived by his daughter; his parents; one brother, Daniel Siegling (significant other, Jennie Kranz), Brookings; his grandmothers, Lou Rediger, Miller, and Dolores Siegling, Sioux Falls, aunts and uncles, Greg (Carolyn) Rediger, Miller, Luann (Tom) Reynolds, Sioux Falls, Byron (Cheryl) Rediger, Marvin NC, Darla (Sam) Lukens, Tea, Dennis Siegling, Tea, and Dawn Siegling, Lakeville, MN; and cousins, Grant Rediger, Nathan (Mckenzie) Reynolds, Kari (Sam) Purtle, Rainey (Brittany) Reynolds, Bryanna Rediger, Braydon Rediger, Brooke Rediger, Becky (Andrew) Hartman and Alex Schaefbauer.
