DON STIGERS, GRI

In Memoriam

Don Stigers, our beloved colleague and friend, passed away unexpectedly on May 22, 2019. Don was always one of our hardest working Brokers, and was always looking for ways to assist his clients – all the while maintaining a keen sense of humor.
Before working at The Liberty Group, Don was involved for over three decades in a variety of business ventures – from owning tanning salons to optical dispensaries. He brought that expertise with him when he joined us here at The Liberty Group.
Don served in the US Army, and was a member of The Elks, The American Legion and The Shriners. Don was also a pilot, and he owned his own plane.
Don’s survivors include his wife Judi, daughters Christy and Sherri, and several grand-and great-grandchildren. He will be missed.
