Sigel Glenn ( œSig ) Stocker, 89, of Wooster passed away peacefully on Friday November 5, 2021.
Sig was born October 28, 1932 to Glenn and Kathryn Stocker in Dennison, OH. After completing his Bachelor ™s degree from The Ohio State University, he married the love of his life, Mabel Karling on August 8, 1954. They travelled together as he served as a photograph interpreter for the U.S. Air Force from which he was honorably discharged many years later with the rank of Captain.
Sig worked for several years on the family dairy farm, he was 4-H agent in Wayne County and Tuscarawas County before he returned to The Ohio State University to earn his Master ™s degree then PhD in bovine genetics. He worked for OSU as Director of freshman advisors for the College of Agriculture until 1978 when he moved to Wooster to develop the Dairy program at OSU ATI. He retired from Ohio State as Professor Emeritus. Later he worked as a research assistant for Technology Unlimited in Wooster.
Nothing was more important in life for Sig than his family and he found great joy in being involved in the lives of his children and later grandchildren. He attended more musical productions, speeches and sporting events than you could count. He was a great storyteller and no matter what the situation, he had a story that would relate. He and Mabel enjoyed traveling and visited all 48 continental states in their RV. They also enjoyed Ohio State football and used their season tickets for over 40 years.
Sig is survived by his wife, Mabel, children Eric (Sara) Stocker of Amherst, Kurt (Theresa) Stocker of Greenwood, IN, Amy (Barry) Jolliff of Wooster, Jon (Brenda) Stocker of Elida and Karl (Lori) Stocker of Ellington, CT, 12 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren and his sister Sue Romig.
