John Feddrich Ziegler, "Jack", age 79, of Lower Gwynedd PA, died Thursday February 7, 2019 in the Abington Hospital Jefferson Health in Abington.

Born in Philadelphia, Jack was the son of the late John and Helene (nee Feddrich) Ziegler.

Jack received his Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University and was a registered professional engineer. He was employed by PECO at the Limerick Generator Station until his retirement in 2012.

Jack was a member of Upper Dublin Lutheran Church and served as Financial Advisor to the Upper Dublin Christian Nursery School. He loved spending time with his grandchildren. Jack was known as a "gadget" guy. He loved model boats. He built two model boats including a lobster boat and Chris Craft. He sailed them with a model boat club in the Villages, Florida. While vacationing in Florida, Jack became an avid golfer. He was never serious about it and did lots of laughing over his "gaffs".

Jack is the beloved husband of Ruth Elaine (nee Sunderland). He is the dear father of John "Jack" Ziegler and his wife Ingrid of Wheaton, Illinois and Eric Ziegler and his wife Elizabeth of Newtown Square. He is the loving grandfather of Melissa, Jenny, Sarah and Ben Ziegler.

Relatives and friends are invited to call on Friday March 1, 2019 from 10:00 to 11:00 AM at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church, 411 Susquehanna Road, Ambler, PA. Jack's Funeral Service will begin at 11:00 AM, followed by a luncheon in Fellowship Hall. Interment will be private.

Dear Ruth and family,
I had the privilege of working with Jack when I worked in the UDCNS he was such a pleasure to be work with and to be around. He had a gentleness about him and was always so kind and pleasant. I feel blessed to have known Jack. I pray you find peace and comfort in your memories with Jack. With my deepest sympathies Love Theresa Tino

All of us in the Carrigan clan extend our deepest sympathies on the loss of our dear Uncle Jack. Through all of his struggles and ups and downs during the past year, his spirit and sharp mind seemed to triumph over all the physical hurdles he battled, and that makes him a VERY special and strong person. His contagious smile and huge personality was always so impressive. We admired him for the very special person he was and continue to feel that way at this difficult time. He will certainly be missed - but his incredible and all-encompassing goodness will remain in our hearts always.

Jack Ziegler was a fine man, a wonderful father, grandfather and husband. The world is better because he was in it. Michael Neuman and Sons

Antoinette Baker on Feb 9, 2019

The kiwi Sunderland’s send their deepest sympathies to you Ruth and your family. I will forever cherish my memories of meeting Jack. He was clearly much loved and looked up to. Thee is a Maori proverb that comes to mind for me. See below. And I don’t mean the proverb just because he was tall! (Jack humour there) lots of life Antoinette Sunderland Baker. Christchurch, New Zealand.

Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane

The totara has fallen in the forest of Tane

A totara is a huge tree that grows for hundreds of years. For one of them to fall is a great tragedy. This proverb is said when someone of importance passes away. The Totara is a native tree of New Zealand.
