John P. Ziegler

—    John P. Ziegler, age 38, of Minneapolis and formerly of Janesville, died Saturday, October 27, 2012, at his home.

  Private Family services will be held on Friday, November 2, 2012, at the Arnoldt-McRaith Funeral Home & Crematory in Janesville, MN.  Interment will be held at the Janesville Cemetery.

  Visitation will be held at the Arnoldt-McRaith Funeral Home & Crematory in Janesville on Thursday from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

  John Phillip, the son of Gregory and Anita (McVay) Ziegler, was born on July 10, 1974, in Mankato, MN.  John attended Janesville High School and graduated with the class of 1992.  After high school he attended South Central College in Mankato and earned his degree in Business Management and Accounting.  While in high school John began working at Cub Foods in Mankato and he continued this relationship for over 20 years in different positions with the company.  Most recently John had been working for Wells Fargo Bank.  John had a great sense of humor and he enjoyed making people laugh.  He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, traveling, baking, decorating and animals.  One of John's last wishes was that he wanted his friends and family to smile when thinking of him.  Bright colors always made him smile and the family encourages all coming to the visitation to wear something bright.
