John Signaigo


A celebration of the life of John Signaigo will be held Feb. 17th at St. Peter’s UCC FROM 2-5pm. Weary of reading obituaries noting someone’s courageous battle with death, John wanted it to be known that he died as a result of being stubborn, refusing to follow Dr’s orders and raising hell for far too short of a time, but enjoying life to its fullest. We want to let him know that we will remember his laugh, his storytelling, his energy, his willingness to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it, and most importantly, his love of family.

John was born Oct. 9, 1976 in St. Louis, Missouri, to Susan G. Lincoln and Jerry T. Signaigo. An avid skateboarder,  bicyclist, ukulele player and teller of jokes. He loved to make people laugh and would hate the idea of people mourning his death but would rather have them celebrate his happier days.

John is survived by his beloved children, Richard Signaigo, and Hailey Tackett, his mother Susan G. Lincoln, father Jerry Signaigo, stepmother Laverne Signaigo, sisters Lee G. Baker, Michelle M. Signaigo, and brothers Billy Signaigo, Jason Signaigo, and Jerry Signaigo, stepsisters Melonie Patterson, Kim Galetta, and stepbrother Greg Patterson and their families. Nephews Tristen Signaigo, Noel Baker, Damien Signaigo, Darion Signaigo, Cole Signaigo, Jeffrey Allander, nieces, Nina Baker, Hannah Signaigo,  Myranda Rogers, Madaline Mcgirl, and Great niece Marley Signaigo. 

He asks that you stop by and re-tell the stories he can no longer tell and that you laugh and not cry for he’s skateboarding in the sky, playing his uke, and telling his jokes to whoever will listen. He’d also like you to pay your respects to his beloved mother who unselfishly cared for him until his sweet escape. 

In lieu of flowers he asks that you make a monetary donation to help with his final expenses and/or a donation, in his name,  to the proposed skate board park in Owensville  that he was so excited for and an advocate of.
