Wilbert "Bill" Selmon Sr., 80, of Mansfield, passed away Monday afternoon, March 13, 2017, at OhioHealth Mansfield Hospital. He was born April 8, 1936, in Mississippi, to the late John and Mary (Watson) Selmon.

 

 

 

On March 5, 1954, he married his sweetheart, Annie Hargrove. They moved to Mansfield in 1955 and he began working at Humphrey's for a short time. Bill then got hired at Ohio Brass and worked there until his retirement. Bill was a former member of the Masonic Lodge F&AM. He enjoyed working with his hands and tinkering on cars. He became quite adept at fixing things and helped out his family whenever possible. A very quiet man, he had a calming effect on those around him and will be missed deeply by family and friends.

 

 

 

He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Annie Selmon; his children, Dorothy Camak, Mary Jordan, Wilbert Selmon Jr., Larry (Bobbi) Selmon, Wendy Harris and Jessica (Nigel) Williams; 14 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren, and several great-great grandchildren; and two siblings, Christine Valdry and Frank Selmon.
