Ziggy married his high school sweetheart Janet (Jan) Lippert, on June 22, 1957 they had 57 years of love and adventure.

Ziggy enjoyed spending time with and teasing his grandchildren Lauren, Drew and Rachael Ceckowski, and Evan, Kyle and Abbey Horan. He was the great fixer of all things. Working at Outboard Marine Corporation for 35 years he enjoyed his time with his friends in the engineering department and the race group. In retirement he became the face of safety for Formula One boat racing as the cockpit safety monitor with the UIM (international boat racing organization) ....his boat racing adventures led him to travel the world and make friends everywhere he went. Yet he always remembered to bring his wife, kids and grandkids a little gift from his latest far away travel location......Ziggy was not a man of many words but he was a man who loved his family and friends and they all loved him back!
