Robert Ziegler Obituary

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of

Robert Andrew Ziegler (“Bob” & “Wolfman”), an extraordinary

man who touched the lives of so many. Bob peacefully left this

world on January 27, 2024 surrounded by the love of his family

and his wife of 47 years, Debra Ziegler (Travers). Though he has

left us heartbroken, we take solace in knowing that he lived a life

filled with love, compassion, and countless cherished memories.

Bob was a saved man and was filled with the spirit of the Lord and

we can take comfort in knowing that we will see him again one day. 

Born on June 3, 1952 in Chardon, Ohio, Bob was the loving son and

was preceded in passing by Ann and Barney Ziegler.  He lived his life

as an East-Sider in the communities of Chardon, Kirtland and

Willoughby Hills, Ohio. Bob is survived by his 4 boys and their spouses,

Kevin (Jessica) Ziegler, Jon (Lindsay) Ziegler, Joseph (Korey) Ziegler-Shrum,

and Eric (Hope) Ziegler; his Grandchildren Jackson, Sabrina, Henry, Reese,

Lucy, Mya, and Nova; his mother and father in law Melvin (Gail) Travers,

his sister Bernadine (Douglas) Okonek - children Melanie (Steve) Spicer

and Victoria (Markus) Steinberger, and brother / sister in laws Mark (Karen) Travers,

Melvin (June) Travers, Cheryl (Steve) Gaspar, John (Patty) Travers, and

Michael (Royleen) Travers; Best friend David Kirk. Bob was loved by a

large extended family of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who loved him

so much. He was a devoted husband, loving father, and gracious grandfather,

always putting the needs of his loved ones before his own. His kindness, patience,

and selflessness were unmatched, and he took great pride in nurturing strong bonds

with his family and friends.

Bob was a jack of all trades, recently retiring from Component Repair Technologies  

in which he repaired parts for airplanes and mentored so many people while there.

He was an amazing handyman and loved working with his hands. His memory will

continue to live on for decades in his design and the things he has built for so many people.

Bob’s zest for life was infectious, and he had a unique gift for bringing joy and a smile to

those around him. Bob loved to travel, loved the sun and the beach, and loved spending time

with his wife and family every chance he got.

In memory of Bob and an opportunity to share stories about him, his loved ones invite friends

and family to join them between the hours of 2-7pm for an Open house celebration of Bob’s life on

Sunday February 25, 2024 at Pine Ridge Country Club located in Wickliffe, Ohio. Together, we will

honor his memory and bringing joy to his name from the knowledge that his legacy

will endure in our hearts forever. Bob had requested to be cremated and it is planned to spread his

ashes in a place he held dear to his heart at a later date. 

Although Bob’s physical presence may be gone, his spirit will live on in the hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing him.

May his soul find eternal peace, and may we find solace in the cherished memories he has left behind.
