Harold "Zeig" Zeigler

November 26, 1948 — January 26, 2024

New Cumberland, PA

Harold George “Zeig” Zeigler, 75, of New Cumberland, passed away in the late evening on Friday, January 26, 2024 at Holy Spirit Hospital, Camp Hill, with his family by his side. Born on November 26, 1948 in Harrisburg, he was the youngest of two children of the late George H. and Maye A. (Parthemore) Zeigler.

Zeig was a hard worker all his life, likely stemming from childhood summers laboring on his grandparents’ farm, working at the produce stand at market, or delivering newspapers. He graduated from Cedar Cliff High School in 1966 and would go on to serve his country in the United States Air Force. He worked at Otto & Hollinger Lumber Yard in Lemoyne before employment with the FBI, Washington DC. It was there that he’d meet his best friend and wife of 50 years, Jane; the two would move to PA, settling in Northern York County where they raised a family. Zeig worked at Keystone Building Products in Harrisburg before spending the rest of his working career with Marriott, retiring from the Fairfield Inn & Suites, Union Deposit. 

He was an upbeat and positive person in the lives of his family and friends, and he was always quick with a timely comment or wisecrack. Zeig enjoyed visiting the shore and walking the boardwalk, and he was always proud of his vegetable garden at home. He loved being with family most, soaking in any time they could all be together – especially around the holidays – and he wore the title of “grandpa” like a badge of honor. Hunting and fishing were two of his favorite pastimes, and staying current with Bigfoot sightings and other urban legends kept him entertained. He softened to cats over the years and will be especially missed by his four-legged friend, Chessie.

Surviving is his wife, Jane; daughter, Tiffany, of Fairview Township; and son, Jason, of Lewisberry; grandchildren, Noah, Olivia, and Ethan; and many cousins.

There will be no services in accordance with Zeig’s wishes, but his family will carry out his request of scattering his ashes at sea.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a contribution in Zeig’s name to Vickie’s Angel Foundation, 511 Bridge Street, New Cumberland, PA 17070.
