He was born in Liesing, Vienna, Austria, the oldest of four and the second last surviving child of Katha- rina (Polleros) and Karl Giegl. Besides working as a tool and die maker in Austria, Germany, Can- ada and California, he worked for White's Electronics in Sweet Home for 17 years and loved inventing and working on the Tesla Rotary Steam Engine in his spare time. He was a collector of many things and a jack-of-all trades. He was a volunteer teacher at Sweet Home High School and took great pride in a letter of appreciation re- ceived from President Bush. He was a member of the Seventh-Day Ad- ventist Church and served as a dea- con for many years. Mr. Giegl is survived by his brother, Friederich Giegl of Breiten- furt, Austria, near Vienna; daugh- ters Annelie Hugli and Christine Valentini, both of Ontario, Canada, Kymberly Giegl of Sweet Home and their families; and numerous grand- children, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife, June Giegl; younger brother Howard was born July 29, 1922 in polls, Minnesota to Margaret Jeske, who six years later married Ludvik (Louie) Bergerson, who adopted Howard. The family lived in mill towns throughout the Pacific Northwest. He wed Nellie (McLaughlin) Wilson in 1967 and adopted her three youngest children, Gerald, Earl, and Media. After Nellie's passing in 1987, he married Christine Stamm, and they were together about three years. He was self-taught following a I 0th-grade education. He served in the Army in WWII (Guadalcanal). He was a fine artist of drawings and paintings. A serious vocalist, he was offered a position as an operatic voice instructor at New York's Carnegie Hall. Settling in Sweet Home, Oregon in 1951, he worked as a shingle weaver for over 50 years, writing nightly into the wee hours. He was nominated as 1957 Oregon Poet Laureate, and published Palindromes and Anagrams and a collection of poetry, The Spirit of Adolescence. In 1972, he was in the Ouinness Book of World Records for "Edna Waterfall," the longest palindromic poem. He published games and puzzles in Word Ways, Reader's Digest, other magazines, and achieved a reputation among colleagues as the master of wordplay. Balancing his artistic and linguistic pursuits, he was also respected in the math community (among teachers and profes- sors) as a creative mathematician whose original research included algebra, geometry, and number theory. In his final years, he was working on The Ethical Imperative, a metaphysical thesis based on a lifetime of inquiry in mathematics, physics, philosophy, and theology.
