Gene Selig

We lost our beloved Gene Selig, husband, brother, uncle and friend on March 11, 2014. He died at home in the loving arms of his wife Sonya and his family. There will be a celebration of his life at a future date. Gene was born Gene Curt Selig in Jamestown, ND, December 17, 1947 to Leona & Max Selig. He was the second of three children. His older brother, M Max and younger sister, Renee, were two of the loved ones by his side at the end. Gene graduated from Jamestown High School and North Dakota State University where he earned a degree in electrical engineering. He worked for Texas Instruments and several other companies before finishing his career with Hach Company as their Quality Control Director. To keep busy after leaving Hach, he continued to work for The Light Center in Fort Collins, CO and completely retired in February, 2013. Gene met Sonya Freeman when they both worked at Hach. They started dating in 1992 and maintained a committed relationship for 18 years before getting married on June 6, 2009. The wedding took place in Florida and was attended by both their immediate families. Gene and Sonya enjoyed traveling and took several biking trips each year on Gene's Harley. They were joined on these excursions by friends from Gene's high school years. Other vacations included trips with his "brothers by choice", Sonya's family, and trips to Florida and St. Louis to see his siblings. When not traveling, Gene and Sonya enjoyed golfing and skiing. Gene leaves behind a large family who loved him: his wife Sonya, his brother Max and Max's wife Linda, his sister Renee, and brothers-in-law Larry, Don, Marvin and Daryl together with their wives and numerous nephews and nieces from both families. If you want to send a memorial in Gene's name, please send it to Pathways Hospice at 305 Carpenter Road, Fort Collins, CO 80525. Their loving care made this difficult time easier.
