To Siggy's family we are so very sad to hear of his passing. Bus driver,volunteering,family man and a friend to all he was a gentle sole. Siggy always had that smile and friendly voice to all he was in contact with. Knowing him from the community club were Ran and I sat on the board we loved it each and every time we saw him. He treated everyone he was n contact with, with respect and dignity. That never changed over the years. He always had a good ear that would listen to whatever you were talking about. Getting on the bus we would say to me "Well hello there. You have me today to take you on your journey". I would always stand at the front of the bus and talk about the good old days and family. Siggy had two families. His immediate one and all the people he would be with each day. What and achievement this man made in his life time for the community. Ray and I are very proud to have known him and we will always think of the good old days were we had so much fun with him. You always had a smile to share, Time to give and time to care. A loving nature kind and true, Is the way Ray and I will always remember you. Rest in peace.

Bunny and Family, My condolences to you and the family. I remember the first time I saw Siggy was when he drove the 90 bus and ever since our family's started to talking, then we got to see the funny side of Siggy, during the Hi Neighbor Festival. He will be missed so deeply. Hugs to you all, if there is anything I can do please let me know 🧡
