Eric Sigfrids, age 51, passed away on April 1, 2020, at his home with his loving family by his side.

Eric was born October 27, 1968, in Elmhurst, Illinois, the son of James and Barbara (Widner) Sigfrids. Eric grew up in Stonington, and as a family they moved to Gladstone, where he started school at the ISD Learning Center. Eric lived on his own for quite a few years and was always out in the community. He loved socializing, swimming, and bowling with his friends and listening to music. His favorite music was from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Eric had a lot of amazing friends and a caring family, and he will be deeply missed by so many.

Eric is survived by his parents, James and Barbara, two uncles, three aunts, niece Abbie, and nephews Nick and Ben. He was preceded in death by grandparents Loyal and Helen Sigfrids, grandmother Lillian Tidwell, brother Samuel Sigfrids, and sister Jennifer Sigfrids.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to all of the wonderful caregivers that took such great care of Eric over the years.

Services for Eric will be held at the convenience of the family. The Skradski Family Funeral Homes of Delta County are assisting the Sigfrids family.

    We had fun with Eric in the pool at the YMCA. He would try to splash us and just was a joy to have there. The care he got from Dee and others seemed to be outstanding! I am better for having known Eric.

    Barb and Jim,
    So sorry for your loss of both Jenny and Eric in such a short period of time. I remember taking Eric to Jenny’s wedding and also watching both Eric and Samuel.
    You’re in my prayers.

    Dear Barb and Jim,
    We are sad to hear of your loss. May our merciful God Jehovah keep Eric in his memory until his son Jesus brings him back to a perfect and everlasting life in a paradise on earth.
    We will continue to remember him and his siblings, and keep you in our prayers.

    Dear Barb and Jim,
    It is with tears in my eyes when I read Erik’s tribute. I’ve known your family since I had the pleasure of working with Erik and enjoying his friendship since then. He and I saw each other in the Y pool in recent years. He was a bright spot in the lives of so many.

    You and Jim were the foundation upon which Erik was able to live out his life with family, friends, activities and love. Thank you for being role models for families with disabled children.
    Respectfully in friendship,

    Dear Barb and Jim,

    Please know that you both have been in my constant thoughts this past week. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss of Jennifer and Erik, and, of course Samuel. We all look forward to happier days in the future, relying on the resurrection hope.
    What a time it will be!

    My daughter and I had the chance to play mini- golf with Eric and a care-giver this past winter. He was thrilled to beat us, smiling the whole time. I am so sorry for your loss.
