Jeffrey Sicble, 64, passed away peacefully in his home on June 10th, 2023. It is believed to be caused by his stubbornness. He left behind an immense amount of useless items that we have no idea what to do with. If you are missing anything from the last decade, odds are, it’s in his house.
Jeff was known for his lack of patience, his tell-it-like-it-is personality and giving you his opinion whether you wanted it or not.
He was also known for his long, entertaining stories, which he loved to repeat often.
Jeff grew up in the “good old days” and, yes, we were told many times over about how tough things were when he was a kid, so suck it up, buttercup.
With that being said, he was generous to a fault. He was the guy that would give you the shirt off his back. If you needed a place to stay, his door was always open. You would be fed well and rolling with laughter. He was always very passionate about helping others.
He was a master chef in the kitchen and showed his love by feeding his family and friends. He was always planning the next meal and coming up with some new concoction. I’ll never forget the time that he put me into anaphylactic shock because he forgot that he put peanuts in the chili.
A salesman, through and through, he was always trying to get his family on board for the next big venture. From flipping furniture, to fixing old cars, buying a food truck, or selling coins, he was convinced he was going to strike it rich, and we were all going to help him.
He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but just know that if he owes you a beer, and you can find him in heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another one.
Rest assured; Jeff died knowing that the Green Bay Packers are the greatest football team in existence.
Jeff is preceded in death by his parents Roy and Helen Sicble, his sister Jane Bartels, and his son Bradley Sicble.
He will be sorely missed and survived by his children: Kaleena Sicble, Amanda Schumacher, Ryan(Heather) Sicble, Ashley(Steven) Featherston, Michelle(Dan) Sicble-Eberhart, and Nicholas Sicble; Eight grandchildren: Natalie Featherston, Anabell Sicble, Brayden Sicble, William Featherston, Kenadie Schumacher, Ella Eberhart, Kaden Schumacher, and Greyson Eberhart. His siblings: Butch Sicble, Roger(Jean) Sicble, Bob(Brenda) Sicble, and Deb(Doug) Kroh along with many nieces and nephews.
Following his wishes, there will not be a service, but friends and family are invited to join us at his farewell party, or as we would like to call it, a celebration of life, held at the Mandan Eagles on June 21st, 2023 at 2pm.
