Selby D. Cullum, of Conway, Ark., went to be with his Lord on Sunday, July 21, 2013, at his home.

He was born Feb. 14, 1937, in Van Buren County, Ark., a son of the late Coleman and Bessie Cullum.

Selby known by most of his friends as ""Shelby"" or ""Seb"" enjoyed working in the yard and gardening. After retirement, he mowed yards for something to do, because he was not good at just sitting still.
