OBITUARY

Scott Charles Sigerseth

January 15, 1969September 2, 2020

Scott Charles Sigerseth 51, born January 15, 1969 in Huntington Beach, California, passed suddenly on September 2, 2020 in Humble, Texas. “Scottie” grew up in Davis, California and was always proud of and loyal to the Davis/Sacramento area. He was a standout tennis and basketball player at Davis High, where many of his records still stand, and was heavily recruited to play tennis in college.

He attended the University of Arizona on a tennis scholarship in 1987 and was a standout tennis player and lettered all 4 years for his close friend, Coach Bill Wright. He also was a proud member of the Alpha Tau Omega (“ATO”) fraternity. Scottie became very close friends with many members of the tennis team, the basketball, football and other sports teams at the UofA and the ATO fraternity. He graduated in 1992 with a degree in Political Science and was an avid supporter of all Wildcat sports.

After college, Scottie played tennis professionally on the ATP tour for 4 years, qualifying to play singles at Wimbledon, and reaching as high as the 226th ranked doubles player in the world. After tennis, he worked in the insurance industry for 12 years, and then transitioned to becoming a very successful tennis pro for the next 15 years. He worked at several clubs in New York; notably at the East Hampton Indoor Club and most recently The Clubs of Kingwood outside of Houston, Texas. He loved working with everyone (and they loved him), especially with juniors, and was well known for inspiring new players to the game and developing high level players.

He was married to Andrea F. Culligan on January 14, 2011 at the MGM Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada in front of his closest friends and family.

Aside from all of his accomplishments, Scottie will be remembered most for his charming and playful wit, a cutting (but loving) sense of humor, a gregarious personality, and someone who loved sports and cherished his friendships. He was also nicknamed “memory” for his amazing memory and stories involving his friends and family, that he told often and with incredible passion.

He is survived by his wife Andrea (and their dog Flossy), his mother Carla, his father Charles, mother-in-law Carmel, father-in-law Paddy, sister Carli, sisters-in-law Nicola and Marie Therese, brother-in-law Michael, nephews Matthew and Carlos, and niece Emma.

I was so sad to hear the news of Scott's passing. I have such great memories of our college years, spent laughing and watching Scott's tennis matches with my roommate, Jana. We never missed a home match. We had a ball! I was always impressed with how modest Scott was about his tennis success. He was a true gentleman. I will never forget his contagious smile. Sending prayers to his wife and the Sigerseth Family. Love, Novinsk

Dear Family and Friends,
We are all so devastated at the loss of my beloved nephew Scott. Frank (my husband now deceased) and I spent many memorable holidays with the Sigerseth family in Sacramento. Scott was always so happy and enjoyed our family gatherings as we watched him grow up to become a handsome, loving and kind man.

We attended a high school basketball game and were so amazed and proud of his huge fan club in the audience. He was a popular superstar on the team and was featured in the Sacrament Bee for his athletic accomplishments. We also went to his youth tennis matches played in San Jose and were always impressed with his outstanding performances. He stayed with us a few times and he and his friend thought that our hot tub was so "cool" and enjoyed a relaxing soak.

He choose to pursue tennis and attended college in Arizona on a scholarship. He was so successful that he decided to join the worldwide circuit and made it all the way to Wimbledon - a true champion indeed! He then taught tennis professionally and developed a huge following of loving and adoring students and peers over the years.

When he met the family of his wife Andrea living in Ireland, they became a close knit and loving unit. They decided to take up residence and stayed there for a few years. Of course, they took their beloved dog Flossy wherever they went.

All the family and adoring friends loved him deeply and feel privileged to have shared so many wonderful experiences with him. We will surely miss him, but are grateful for all of our treasured memories of our loving Scott.
