David Seigars Obituary

We the family are sadly announcing the passing of David D. Seigars at his home in Alna, Maine.  He died at the age of 69, on February 15, 2024, surrounded by his loved ones after a 14 year battle with cancer.

David “Dave” was born in Damariscotta on October 17, 1954 to the late Albert C. Seigars and Geneva (Koehling) Seigars.  He is survived by his brothers, Albert C. Seigars Jr. (wife Goldie), Samuel T. Seigars (predeceased wife Christine), Stanley Seigars (predeceased wife Janet), Rodney Seigars (predeceased wife Loretta).  

He resided in Alna until he was 17, and married Cindy L. (Marston) Seigars on August 19, 1972 in South Gardiner.  As a child he attended Alna and Wiscasset Schools.  David moved to Gardiner, where he bought his first home and enlisted into the United States Air Force, where he worked as a jet engine mechanic.  At this time, he also attended Adult Education Night School and graduated in 1981.  He attended UMA for a year and studied computer programming.  

His first job was at Lipman's Poultry in Augusta.  Other jobs he worked included SCI, Augusta Lumber, Sears, Bisson Moving Company, a security guard at the Army National Guard base, a mechanic at Dresden Texaco, a private truck driving company, Log Cabin Fuel, Boy Scouts of America Troop #222 as Assistant Scout Leader, and with his father hauling potatoes and other goods from Massachusetts to Maine.  His final jobs were working for the Alna Town Office doing roadside cleanup, where he also served a term as 3rd Selectman and Precinct Election Official.  His passion was working as a Volunteer Firefighter for the Alna Fire Department for 18 years, and being a member of the Scottish Rite in Rockland and The Lincoln Masonic Lodge #0003 in Wiscasset.  

He was proud to be a priesthood holder at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  David was a hard worker who loved his woodworking projects, Monopoly, doing puzzles, and enjoyed spending time with his family, friends, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  He was a God-fearing man who was always willing to lend a helping hand for others.  He enjoyed going on family trips, dancing and singing to Footloose, Old Time Rock 'n Roll and Jeremiah was a Bullfrog, and driving the fire trucks.  He enjoyed singing to Cindy his two favorite songs, Kiss an Angel Good Morning and Funny Face.  David will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.

David is survived by his lovely wife of 51 years, Cindy L. Seigars; his daughters, Leann Kingsbury and Tammy Seigars (Fiance Allan); grandchildren, Casey GaNun (wife Trinity), Alex GaNun (Girlfriend Michaela), Isaiah Seigars, Dylan Ambrose, Justin Ambrose (Fiance Sarah), and Daniel Kingsbury; great-grandchildren, Gabriel, Kayden, Deacon, Fynnlee, Ily-Rose, Landiinn, Riley, Elliot, Sebastian and Madison; several nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and extended family and friends.
