Dometic Marine mourns longtime engineer

Longtime Dometic Marine engineer Jim Sigler died unexpectedly on Tuesday. He was 64.


Sigler began his engineering career at Mansfield Sanitary Pottery, which later became SeaLand Technology and is now Dometic Corp.'s sanitation division. On March 16, he would have reached 40 years of service.

"Jim was a creative and extremely dedicated engineering leader. Many of his product developments became the foundation of our successful sanitation division," Dometic Marine president Frank Marciano said in a statement.

"He was awarded several patents for his innovative designs and advancements in the field of marine and RV sanitation," he added. "Jim had a great sense of humor and was very generous and supportive to all fellow employees and customers. He will be greatly missed."

Sigler, of Perrysville, Ohio, who was an Army veteran, is survived by his wife, Sharon, and three sons and daughters-in-law; Robert and Aemie Sigler of Millersburg; Ohio, Westin and Amy Sigler of Columbia City, Ind.; and Ryan Sigler of Mansfield, Ohio; and six grandchildren.

Memorial contributions can be made to the Loudonville Baptist Temple, 15528 State Route 3, Loudonville, OH 44842.
