Carleton E. "Cully" Selig

January 18, 1925 — October 2, 2013

Carleton Selig, age 88, of Appleton, passed away on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at his home. He was born on January 18, 1925 in Appleton, the son of the late Raymond and Veronica (Tracy) Selig. On November 28, 1946, Carleton married Marie O'Neil in Oconto. He was a licensed master plumber along with his father and brother, operating Selig & Sons Plumbing. Cully retired in 1990 as the Plumbing Inspector with the City of Appleton.

He kept his mind sharp by doing crossword puzzles, and anything to do with words – he fancied himself as a “lexicologist”. His family meant everything to him; he was a very generous and loving father, grandfather, and friend. Cully was there for everyone! He was an avid fan of the Brewers, Badgers, and Packers. Anyone who knew Cully, knew he was proud to be a registered Democrat.

Carleton is survived by his children: James Selig, Winneconne; Charles Selig, Cocoa, Florida; Sharon (Tim) Gunther, Appleton; and Steve (Kathy) Selig, Appleton; grandchildren: Shawn (Judy) Selig, Steven D. (Megan) Selig, and Scott (Jody) Selig; Chaine (Molly) Selig, Jayme (Mike) Stuntz, Lonnie (Amy) Selig and Denny DeBruin; Jeff Laszewski, Lynn (Rocky) Drozd, and Andrea Selig; twelve great grandchildren; a great great grandchild; sister-in-law, Joyce Selig; and nieces: Mary Rose, Connie, Amy, and Lori along with their families. He is further survived by many special family friends, and “bar buddies”.

Cully was preceded in death by his wife, Marie Selig; sons, Timothy Selig and William Selig; sister, Mary Rose Selig; brother, Daniel Selig; step-mother, Sal Selig; son-in-law, Ray Stokes; and great grandson, R.J. Drozd.

The funeral liturgy for Cully will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 222 E. Fremont Street in Appleton. Fr. Bob Lexa will be officiating.
