Obituary: Vern Eldon Ziegler

General News

Friends and family remembered Vern Eldon Ziegler (April 3, 1935 – February 6, 2020), founder of Ziggy’s home improvement stores, who died last week at 84.

His sons said he had a passion for life and work throughout his life that was hard to turn off.

“Dad always had so many things going through his mind, he had to record them to keep track of it all,” his son, Karl Ziegler, told The Spokesman-Review of Spokane, WA.

The article looks back on Ziegler’s life and brings up an interview he did with the paper eight years earlier. It can be found here:
