Steven John Selk

AGE: 58 • Newark

Steven John Selk, 58, of Newark, DE peacefully passed away surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, January 21, 2017.

Steve was born in Rahway, NJ on July 29, 1958 and served our country in the Air Force. He was a member of Carpenters Local Union 626 for 34 years, and was employed as a superintendent with Union Wholesale Company. Steve enjoyed spending time in the sun and sand with his Darly, particularly at the Outer Banks and Isla Mujeres, Mexico. He was also an avid fisherman and spent many memorable times casting his line along the shore. Steve loved being with his family, especially his beloved grandchildren, who called him Pops. Steve was a simple man who made everyone smile with his witty words and overall genuinely kind-hearted nature.

Steve will be dearly missed by his wife, Darlene (Boyd) Selk; his sons, Steven R. Selk (Lindsay) and Shawn E. Selk; his step daughters, Nicole Harvey (Sean), Michele Hopkins and Samantha Hopkins; and his grandchildren, Jackson, Elizabeth, Chase, Madison and Alexis. He is also survived by his sisters, Kathleen Franklin and Linda Selk; his brother, Richard Selk; and other siblings.

He was predeceased by his father, Richard Selk; and his mother, Joyce (Kovach) Selk.

Friends are invited to visit at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek on Saturday, January 28 from 1:00-2:30PM. A service in celebration of Steve's life will begin at 2:30PM.
