Harry Ronald Siegert, a retired Baltimore public school educator and coach, died of kidney failure Tuesday at Georgetown University Medical Center. The Frederick resident was 77.

Mr. Siegert was born in Baltimore and raised in Arbutus and Pigtown.

After graduating from Southern High School in 1946, he enlisted in the Marine Corps and served as an aviation mechanic until being discharged in 1949 with the rank of master sergeant.

He was a 1953 graduate of the University of Maryland and began teaching that year at Dundalk High School, where he was also wrestling coach.

From 1955 to 1967, he taught and coached varsity football and wrestling at Edmondson High School.

In 1967, Mr. Siegert joined the faculty of Patterson High School, where he coached the varsity football team and was a guidance counselor. He retired in 1982.

The former Dundalk resident, who had lived in Frederick since 1999, enjoyed attending lacrosse games at Centennial High School, where a son, Michael S. Siegert of Columbia, is the lacrosse team's head coach.

Services were private.

Also surviving are his wife of 55 years, the former Alta Jeanette Willard; two other sons, Kim R. Siegert of Pittsburgh and Steve K. Siegert of Freeville, N.Y.; two brothers, John F. Siegert of Baltimore and Gene Siegert of Ocean City; and four grandchildren.
