Gordon Robert Sigren, Jr. passed away peacefully September 5, 2017 in Traverse City at Munson Hospice House surrounded by his loving family and friends. He was born December 5, 1953 in Muskegon to Gordon and Dixie Sigren.

Gordy is survived by his: daughter, Sari Rae (Robert) Mellendorf and granddaughters, Megan and Madison; his mother, Dixie Sigren; siblings: Mary Jo (Terry) Mussell, Jill (Mark) Stalter, Karl (Michelle) Sigren; brother-in-law, Mike Kaiser; Mary VanTilberg; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Gordy will be deeply missed by the Brakel Point Social Club family and all his extended family and friends.

Gordy was preceded in death by his grandparents, father, and sister Jan, and best friend Cathy VanTilberg.
Living life to its fullest was deeply important to Gordy; and he found great pleasure in his photography, being outdoors-hiking and fishing, and his immense sense of humor to bring a smile to all those he loved. He was a graduate of Mt. Pleasant High School, class of 1972. Gordy worked for Northern Building Supply for many years and we thank them for their extreme kindness.

Those wishing to make memorial contributions may be directed to: Munson Hospice House, 1105 6th Street Traverse City, MI 49684 (munsonhomehealth.org).

To continue Gordy's legacy of helping others, he chose to donate his body to research. A celebration of Gordy's life will take place Saturday, October 7, 2017 1:00-4:00 pm at the Brakel Point Social Club.
