In Memory

Jonathan J. Selig

Jonathan J. Selig

JONATHAN J. SELIG, he was the kind of person you were fond of from the first time you met him. A laid back kind of guy, who worked and played hard and enjoyed his life. There will always be his girls, his wife, Shirley and daughter, Erin, and their great life together. His brother, Paul, his sister, Marcia, and John, his son-in-law, nieces Holly and Heather, nephews Paul, Danny and Patrick. He loved his Chevies, his boys, Beauregard and Duke, and the boys in the band, Last Call, not to mention all his friends, and he had many. We didn't want you to cruise on to the other side, but we all have to. We will miss you and will always love you. We will see you again someday.

It took until the 30 year class reunion for us to become friends.  Jon and his lovely bride asked me to join them after I arrived alone.  We spent the rest of the reunion talking music and travel.  Looking back;  I'm sorry I didn't stay in touch.

I first knew Jon in grade school at St. Angela's. Quite a guy--smart as heck and pretty quirky. Always felt there was a secret story there. Great eyes too. Would periodically run into him around Rocky River after high school. Was sad to learn that he had passed away. A truly memorable and unique individual.

Jinny, I bet we met him in Wooster school kindergarten. All of these  names of those we have lost, makes me appreciate life even more.

Bet you're right, Kathy, re Wooster School!

F.Y.I.   Jon was living with his wife on Prospect in River, doing well, playing bass in a blues band on the weekends and loving life. Sadly he got very ill and when they told him that there was nothing more that they could do for him, he decided that he wanted to attend his own wake. So he threw a party at a bar in Westlake with a live band.  It was packed with his friends who came to say goodbye and pay their last respects. I can still see him sitting at the bar, weak, but smiling as he said his farewells ......how cool is that.

He died about a month later.
