Jesse B. Siler, Jr.

Jesse B. Siler, Jr., age 67, of Swanton, Ohio, passed away peacefully Sunday afternoon, January 16, 2022, at Ebeid Hospice in Sylvania, with family at his bedside. He was born May 17, 1954 in Toledo, Ohio to Jesse, Sr. and Alberta (Donahue) Siler. Jesse married Sandra Lee Willard on April 16, 1973. Together they raised two children.

Jesse worked for UPS as a semi driver for 20 years before retiring. He
enjoyed spending time with friends and family. Whether it was getting
together for dinners at a restaurant, pitching horseshoes, playing a
round of cornhole, or sitting around a roaring campfire, he loved it all. He
liked taking his boat out and fishing at his favorite fishing hole at the
Delta reservoir, trying his luck at the casinos and making memories with
family on vacations.

Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife of 48 years, Sandra; son,
Chad (Robyn) Siler; daughter, Michelle Kowalski; grandchildren, Kylie Marie
Siler, Matthew William Siler, Nicole Violet Siler and Brody James Kowalski.

Jesse was preceded in death by his parents and his grandson, David
VannJames Jarvis.

Visitation will be held Saturday, January 22nd from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home in Swanton, where a Memorial Service will begin at 5:00 p.m., with Pastor Donna Stutzman officiating.
