Scott Anthony Selig, age 71, of Marysville, passed away peacefully Saturday, June 4, 2022 at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center with his wife and daughters by his side. A 1969 graduate of Marysville High School, he retired in 2007 from Nestle R & D in Marysville where he was a welding associate for 40 years. He traveled extensively around the world to other Nestle plants to help install and assemble new factory equipment. Throughout his career, Scott had his own welding shop where he contracted with various companies and individuals. Proud of learning the trade from his late father, George, he also fabricated sculptures as a hobby. He was a longtime member of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church where he was baptized and confirmed his faith on April 11, 1965. He helped with the “Loving In Actions And In Truth” church projects. A proud American, he was a veteran of the United States Army and served in Vietnam, where he was a sheet metal welder on damaged helicopters. With the safety of the American troops always on his heart, he would end every prayer with, “God protect our troops.” A skilled carpenter, John Wayne fan and outdoorsman, he loved hiking, camping, and traveling out west to national parks. A weightlifter, he maintained his physical fitness throughout his life. He loved football, especially his Cleveland Browns. But above all, he adored his wife, daughters, grandchildren, siblings, extended family and feline buddy, “Yodi.” He was born June 26, 1950 in Denver, Colorado to the late George and Jeanette Amelia Blumenschein Selig. He was also preceded in death by a brother, Jeffrey William “Jeff” Selig; a half-brother, “Skip” Selig; his father-in-law, Andrew J. Kralik; a brother-in-law, Andrew M. “Andy” Kralik. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Barbara Kralik Selig, whom he married January 4, 1975 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church; two daughters, Vanessa (Chris) Higgins of Washington, D.C. and Amelia (Dan) Greider of Huntington, West Virginia; five grandchildren, Conor and Cassidy Higgins and Declan, Rosabella and Piata Greider; his siblings, Bonnie (Sam) Norris, Debbie (Dan) Miller, Valerie (Jeff) Barnhorst and Matthew (Kathy) Selig; his half-siblings Mike Selig, and Becky Garner; a sister-in-law, Patti Gohn; his mother-in-law, Mary Rose Kralik; sisters and brothers-in-law, Theresa (Charles) Sampsel, Peter (Eileen) Kralik, Gerard (Audrey) Kralik, John (Nancy) Kralik, Karen (Don) MacGillivray and Michael (Kelly) Kralik; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives. Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Tuesday, June 7, 2022 at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church where the family will receive friends beginning at 1 p.m. Rev. Jacob D. Heino will officiate and burial will follow the service at church cemetery with military honors provided by the Union County Military Funeral Honor Guard.
