SSGT Kevin Zeigler

Services Thursday, August 24, 2006

Location: Mt. Moriah Freeman Funeral Home

Kevin Zeigler
Kevin was born January 15, 1975 in Springfield, Missouri and found his calling in life when he enlisted as an Army Scout in 1995. A veteran of numerous deployments, Kevin was welcomed in our Lord's Kingdom on August 12, 2006, as he bravely served with C Troop, 1st Squadron, 10th United States Cavalry in Iraq.

Kevin was a loving father and husband, and he will be deeply missed and forever loved by his caring wife, Stacy, his children Kali, Sierra, Tyler and Dawn. Kevin shared a special relationship with them, one that will never be replaced or forgotten. He was a devoted father and husband who gave his all for his wife and children.

It was not the way that Staff Sergeant Kevin Zeigler died that made him a hero it was the way he lived. A man with strong faith and a true love for life, Kevin approached everyday as a new beginning and every challenge as an opportunity. Admired by senior leaders, respected by peers, and loved by subordinates, Kevin was a soldier's soldier at home in the outdoors, naturally gifted with equipment and machinery, and possessed of a special ability to make the seemingly overwhelming simple.

While known for his outstanding leadership and engaging personality, SSG Zeigler always found time to help those in need. Willing to stand up for what he believed to be right, Kevin never faltered in his desire to live and serve honorably. Perhaps more than any other trait, it was Kevin's sincere compassion for those we are attempting to help in Iraq that made him special. Although constantly fighting incredibly difficult situations, he always treated each individual as one of God's children.

Those who have had the honor of being touched by Kevin's life will forever be grateful for the lessons he taught us all. Though his time here on earth may have been short, the life Kevin led will continue to inspire us all.
