To Laverne and family, our deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved husband, father and grandfather. During our time at St. John’s I found him to be such a kind and friend person. Always had a smile on his face. Memory eternal Alex.

I have fond memories of Mr. Tsiguloff starting in the early 1970s with him sponsoring our little league team to my high school and later college years seeing him and his family at their home or around Ft Wayne. He was always such a nice and inviting man and always made me feel at ease. My thoughts are with his family.

I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Mr Tsiguloff. But boy has it brought back great memories of living on Lakewood Drive. I can still remember Mr. T drinking his Stoley on the rocks, my dad drinking his manhattans, both telling "dad" jokes, laughing hard and having a great time at the neighborhood parties. Memories to be cherished forever.
