Jeffrey William “Jeff” Selig, age 63, of Whitefish Montana, formerly of Marysville, Ohio died peacefully on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at his home surrounded by his loving family and closest friends after a courageous 2 year battle with cancer. A self employed mason for over 40 years, he built his business, “Selig Masonry”, and was very well known in the state of Montana for his exceptional quality of workmanship and was hired by several celebrities and professional athletes for custom stonework at their properties.
A 1971 graduate of Marysville High School, Jeff was a standout athlete in baseball and especially excelled in football where he received “Most Valuable Player” his senior year and also made “All State” in the Mid 8 Conference. He was proud to be a “Monarch” and wanted to name his business “Monarch Masonry” but the name was already trademarked.
Jeff was born September 28, 1953 in Marysville, Ohio to the late George and Jeanette (Blumenschein) Selig. He was also preceded in death by his father-in-law, William Gohn and many other Aunts and Uncles. He is survived by his beloved wife of 40 years, Patti Gohn, his son Taylor Selig and girlfriend Kelsey Lucostic of Missoula Montana, daughter Ryan (Parker) Beeson and his soon-to-be born 1st grandchild of Whitefish, his siblings, Scott (Barb) Selig, Bonnie (Sam) Norris, Debra (Dan) Miller, Valerie (Jeff) Barnhorst all of Marysville and Matt (Kathy) Selig of Ft. Wayne, IN, his mother-in-law, Tina Gohn, two brother-in-laws John and Rusty Gohn, many nieces and nephews and Jeff’s lifelong friends whom he considered brothers, John Lentz and Allen Clark, both of Whitefish and former Marysville High School classmates.
Jeff was so proud of his family and especially his children’s accomplishments. His son Taylor was also a standout athlete in high school in both football and wrestling. He graduated with a degree in Fitness, is a Personal Trainer and currently holds the state record in Montana for power lifting. His daughter Ryan, known to Jeff as “Rye-Pie“, excelled in academics and graduated as a certified dietician.
Jeff’s wishes were to be cremated and his ashes spread over Middle Fork River near Glacier National Park where he loved to fly fish. A celebration of life will be held at a later date in Whitefish. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.underwoodfuneralhome.com
