Obituary for Matthew John Tiggleman

April 11, 1978 - January 14, 2018
| Age 39


Matthew John Tiggleman, born April 11, 1978, was called to his eternal home on Sunday, January 14, 2018. Matt's faith in Jesus was the focus of his life, and his family meant everything to him. Matt touched more lives than we will ever know through his strong faith and trust in Jesus. He was preceded in death by his grandparents Myrtle and Wallace Folkert, and John and Minnie Tiggleman.

Matt is survived by his parents Jack and Lynda Tiggleman, siblings: Katie and Peter Zeedyk(nephews Max, Jackson, & Sam), Brett and Rachel Tiggleman; grandmother Laura Folkert, and many special aunts, uncles, and cousins who supported his earthly journey with visits, prayers, and love. Matt always loved to socialize with family and friends, and did well at talking them into getting him a Diet Coke, or a deck of playing cards.

A time of visitation will be 2-4 and 6-8 pm, Wednesday, January 17, at Yntema Funeral Home, 251 S. State Street, Zeeland 49464. A funeral to honor the faith and life of Matt will be held at 11:00 am, Thursday, January 18, 2018, at First Reformed Church of Zeeland, 125 E. Lincoln Ave., Zeeland. Memorial contributions may be made to Special Education Ministries of Zeeland or Camp Sunshine-PMB 200, 430 East 8th Street, Holland MI 49423.
