WINAMAC, IN - Jeffrey A. 'Jeff' Siemion, 61, of Winamac was born on August 20, 1956 in North Charleston, SC and died on July 5, 2018 in Winamac. He was the precious son of Edmund 'Ed' and Faye Montgomery Siemion. His mother, Faye, died on January 17, 2009. Jeff leaves behind a loving father, Ed (Carol) Siemion in Chesterton; a cherished sister, Jodie Hatfield in Chesterton; and his beloved son, Justin A. Siemion in Portage.
Jeff was a talented welder and had formerly owned and operated a body shop in Valparaiso. He shared his skills as a welding teacher at Ivy Tech and loved his students. He was a talented artist who loved working on paintings and wood carvings and had a passion for music.
Jeff enjoyed nature, especially searching for gemstones, panning for gold and fishing. He also enjoyed spending time on the scenic Tippecanoe River. Jeff loved life as much as nature's beauty. His spirit will carry on like the flowing water of a river and the beauty of a sunset. He liked great conversations with friends. Jeff will be remembered for putting smiles on people's faces and bringing out the best in others.
We must continue on and live through his spirit as a man, a son, a brother and a father. Jeff will be dearly missed. May he rest in peace.
