Thomas Leo (Tommy) Selig, age 72, of Kimberly, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016. Tom was born at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton on December 8, 1943 to the late Albert J. and Mary Ann (Dexter) Selig. He came from the “Fireman” family in Appleton not the “Plumber” family. He graduated from St. Joe’s in ninth grade and Xavier Catholic High in 1962 the first graduating class of Xavier. Tom was born on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception so he enjoyed 12 years off from school on his birthday after attending mass.

Tom married the love of his life, Jeanne Brooks Selig, on November 3, 1978 at Holy Cross Catholic Church, Kaukauna just before deer hunting season started. They celebrated 38 wonderful years together on November 3, of this year. Their marriage was blessed with two loving daughters: Sarah Selig and Jennifer and Shahid Smith. Two grandchildren: Jamal and Jilaela Smith.

Tom went on to UW-Stout for a year before working as a structural draftsman at Appleton Structural Steel in Menasha for 39 years and 4 months. He retired from Valley Drafting Inc. in 2008 after 15 years.

He was also active in many organizations throughout his life. He served as secretary of the Combined Locks Snowmobile Club and usher at the Holy Spirit parish in Kimberly.

Tom enjoyed bowling, motor cycles, Nascar racing, Packers, golfing, playing cards and dice. He also enjoyed time spent at the cabin in Twin Bridge, area hunting and fishing. He enjoyed hunting with his brother, Ron and the other hunting guys from Milwaukee Russ, Dale, Jabbo and Bernie. Tom loved fishing for Walleye with his buddies Jim, Bob and Mel on the Wolf River in New London and enjoyed eating their catch of the day. In his retired years he loved to spend time camping in our trailer at Holtwood Campground in Oconto with our many friends. During the winter months years ago Tom and his family enjoyed snowmobiling with friends on long trips up to Crivitz and Michigan where ever there was snow to be found.

Besides his wife, his children, and grandchildren, he is survived by sisters-in-laws Judy (Brooks) Voecks of Kaukauna, Joyce (Fields) Selig of Appleton; brothers-in-law Jerry and Maryann (Bennin) Brooks of Kaukauna and many nieces and nephews.
