Dominic Ciavonne Ziegler Notice
Dominic Ziegler was known for his imagination, his sense of fun, his great curiosity, and his dark sense of humor. He loved hiking, mushroom hunting, cooking, writing poetry, and especially music. He was an accomplished fiddler, played piano and wrote songs. During his brief, full life he traveled to China, Italy, Spain and Tunisia, among other places, and made many friends wherever he happened to be. Dominic's greatest gift was the way he brought joy to everyone who knew him. Dominic died from an aneurysm caused by endocarditis on Thursday, January 12, 2012. His wish to be an organ donor was honored. Dominic was born October 2, 1988. He attended West Side Union Elementary School in Healdsburg, ArtQuest at Santa Rosa High School, and Santa Rosa Junior College. He majored in Forestry at UC Berkeley, and graduated with honors in 2011. During the summer Dominic worked as an intern at the State Water Quality Control Board. Whenever he could he played his fiddle and sang with the local folk-punk band, the Crux. Dominic is survived by his parents, Mary Ann Ciavonne and Jack Ziegler, his brother Patrick, his aunts and uncles, Carol Ciavonne, Hody Wilson, Ted and Linda Ciavonne, and his cousins Allegra Wilson, Luke Ciavonne, and Adriane Ciavonne. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Valley of the Moon Natural History Association to help keep open Annadel State Park, Dominic's favorite hiking spot. Make checks payable to VMNHA with a memo: Annadel donation. Include a note that the donation is in memory of Dominic Ciavonne Ziegler. Send to VMNHA, 2400 London Ranch Road, Glen Ellen, CA 95442. A celebration of Dominic will be held starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 18, 2011 at Bishop's Ranch, 5297 Westside Road, Healdsburg, CA.
