He enjoyed farming, hunting, fishing, motorcycling and all other outdoor adventures. Even though he enjoyed the hobbies his heart was with his family. He treasured every moment with his children, grandchildren and great grandchild. Zig is survived by his devoted wife Carol, his special daughters; Wendy DiGiovanni and Kimberly Barger-Godt, his favorite son, Lawrence (Lisa) Godt, grandchildren; Shane, Dylan, Rachel, Alexis, Olivia and Caroline, and great granddaughter Leena.
