    Dear Family of Anton, My heartfelt sympathy to all of you. Anton was a fellow Benedictine Oblate of Christ the King Priory in Schuyler, Nebraska and became a dear friend. We first met on one of Fr. Volker’s Benedictine pilgrimages to Germany. Our meetings and conversations at the annual Oblate retreat each fall were treasured times. His kindness, compassion, and deep faith are what I will remember of him. I offered Mass in my oratory (I’m retired now) for him last week. God grant him a full reward for his love and faithfulness and may he enjoy the company of Sts. Benedict, Scholastica, his family, and his Benedictine family now and forever.

    Cousin Tony was always a great guy with a zest for life and a kind heart. I always enjoyed talking with him, even more so after my dad passed. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the Siegl family that I remember well, Barbara, Joan, Sue & Julie. January 6th was also my mom’s birthday and I feel happiness that God has now welcomed him with open arms.

    When our grandson Ryan was about 5 his mom put him to bed one nite. Their custom was to pray for a special person with his nite prayers. Ryan decided he would pray for Anton. He told his mom “ I want to do this myself. His words were ‘Bless us o Lord…’and you can guess the rest!!!! Oh how Anton loved to eat. We hold very special memories of all his visits to Missouri. He was a member of our family. God bless all of you!!

    We are so sorry for losing our wonderful past neighbor. Anton and I spent at least 1-1/2 hrs per month talking on the phone. We kept each other company talking about so many things and we will miss him terribly. Our condolences to his family. Love, Marie and Ken

    We are so sorry for the loss of Anton "Tony". We would see him at the 8:00 mass on Sundays at Holy Cross Church. We also had the pleasure of being seated at the table with him for Father Reif’s 50th Ordination Anniversary dinner. Such a pleasure to talk to. I remember giving him a piece of pineapple upside down cake for Easter 1 year. He was so Thankful. Even sent us a thank you note. He will truly be missed. He also had VERY Beautiful Penmanship! Wow it was just AWESOME! God Bless him and all of you. Hugs Kathy & Randy Dalheim

    Mr. Siegl was a wonderful beautiful soul who I became fast friends with when he would come into Jackson’s Bakery for his treats. When he could no longer walk I would deliver his treats during my break or after work on Saturday’s , he used to call me his bakery angel. We all loved when he came in to Jackson’s everyone knew him by name! I’ll miss my chit chats when I would deliver his goodies. Eternal rest grant unto him oh lord and let your perpetual light shine upon him.

    Anton was a lovely neighbor and person to talk with about our faith. My dog Milo and I will truly miss him. Milo still stops at his house to look for him. Every time I look at the puzzle we worked on together I will forever remember him.

    Uncle Tony was there the day I was born and for my children when they entered the world. You could always count on Uncle Tony for every Holiday, Birthday celebrations and milestone events! Many Fond memories thru the years involved my uncle. Tractor rides, walks in the fields, the water pump on his farm, homegrown tomatoes and squash, the first introduction to a dog in the family, and 50+ years of my favorite bonnet cake on Easter. Being a kid was more fun with Uncle Tony! He enjoyed treats as much as we did, and always shared with us all, including the dog. He lived a long meaningful life and journeyed home to be with God his Father and Jesus. Forever in our hearts dear Uncle Tony!
