Obituary

Sigmund C. Skarzynski Jr, "Ziggy", passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 3,2022 at Temple University Hospital with his fiance and companion of 7 years, Niki Keenan by his side. Born May 11, 1988, in N.E. Phila. He attended Northeast High School and eventually became a member of the Boilermaker's Union and was hard working and a very skilled craftsmen of all sorts.

He passed much too young having succumbed, like thousands of others, to the disease and epidemic of addiction. But this was not what defined him, nor will it be his legacy. Ziggy loved his family. He was a kind and generous man with a great sense of humor. Ziggy accepted Christ 11/12/2020 and was and went forward with a public declaration of faith through baptism 12/10/21.

We will cherish the many happy memories of our dear Ziggy as we know that: "… the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it."- Ecclesiastes 12:7.

Ziggy is pre-deceased by his parents Deborah Tauscher McDermont Skarzynski and Sigmund C. Skarzynski Sr. He is survived by his fiancé, Niki Keenan, their 4-year old son Alexander Warren Skarzynski and his 9-year-old daughter Aubrey Skarzynski, his siblings John McDermott, Becky Skarzynski, Stefanie McDermott, Autumn Leigh McDermott-Hart, as well as many other relatives and friends.

Family and friends are invited to his Life Celebration on July 21, 2022, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Geitner Givnish Life Celebration Home, 6230 N. 5 Th. St. Philadelphia, Pa 19120.
