Obituary of Billie Sigman

Billie J. Sigman, 89, of Fishers, passed away on Tuesday, June 12, 2018 at home.  He was born on June 24, 1928 to Floyd Burl and Bonnie Catherine (Purkey) Sigman in Noblesville, Indiana. On February 28, 1953, he married the love of his life, Bernice Brown. Together they raised a family of three children, daughter, Terri and two sons, Phil and Mike.

Bill attended Durbin Elementary School before graduating from Noblesville High School. He played football and was honored as All-County Guard. After graduation, he went to work for McMahon Grocery, for Harold McMahon. Bill worked for the McMahon family as the company grew from a grocery, to a produce distributor, to a wholesale food company. He was an employee of McMahon Food Company until his retirement, after nearly 50 years. After retirement he worked a short time for Kenley's Groceries before going to work for his son at Sigman's Art Gallery.

He was a member of Clarksville Christian Church his whole life, where he served as a deacon for 50 years and chairman of the Deacons for 25 years. He was a man of prayer and followed Jesus Christ, his Lord. He enjoyed square dancing and taught round dancing with his wife. The family loved to camp, and he enjoyed all sports - especially watching his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids participate. He was a Cubs fan all his life and enjoyed the Colts when they moved to Indianapolis.

He is survived by three children, Terri (John, who passed away in 2017) Sigman-Kennedy, Phil (Frances) Sigman and Mike (Karen) Sigman; brother, Rex (Nancy) Sigman; sisters-in-law, Marlene Sigman, Eunice McLeod and Betty (John) Carter; brothers-in-law, Buster and Bill (Emogene) Brown; grandchildren, Aimee (Jamey) Dodd, Madison (fiancé Josh) Stiegman, Sara (Jon) Hardy, Sadie (Brian) Lupo, Matt Sigman, Dana (Ryan) Wistrom, Joe Stiegman; and ten great-grandchildren.
