Siebolt was a devoted family man who took special delight and joy in his grandkids. His passion was farming, which he did most of his life, first milking cows with his parents, then partnering with his wife, Annie, on their own dairy farm just outside of Auburn. Siebolt was known for his smile and sense of humour. He loved his cows, cats, dogs and birds and could be heard whistling as he worked or singing along in the barn with the country music playing on CKNX. He also enjoyed singing gospel songs with three of his brothers in the Men of Note, a communitywide male choir, for a number of years. Siebolt was a generous and gentle soul who preferred to be out of the limelight, but he warmed others in his midst with his genuine smile and good-natured teasing.
Friends and family are invited to visitation at the Blyth Christian Reformed Church on Tuesday, September 5th from 10-11:30, with funeral service to follow at 12:00.
Interment in Blyth Cemetery.
