Robert "Bob" Selasky

August 2, 1936May 15, 2020

Bob, who was affectionately known by many nicknames to family and friends, including "Boonya," "Uncle Boon," and "Bobby," was born in Hamtramck, Michigan on August 2nd, 1936. The thirteenth of fifteen children, Bob attended Western High School in Detroit and was (unofficially) an honorary student at several colleges and universities. Bob proudly served his country for four years as a member of the United States Air Force. Bob is survived by his wife of 53 years, Julia Selasky, with whom he enjoyed many wonderful travels, including a recent trip to Ireland. Bob is also survived by his four children, John Selasky, Tammy Lapkewych, Cynthia Selasky, and Anne Marie Zielke, and his thirteen grandchildren.

Bob stayed busy by golfing daily in his senior league, attending sporting events, and making kielbasa with family. He especially enjoyed attending weekly Friday lunches with his siblings, having a beer with old friends and new ones (youse guys know who you are), and golfing (yes, golfing, again). Bob's laughter, jokes, friendliness, and contagious smile will be greatly missed.

I am really going to miss my polish friend. His humor and friendship was like no other from the first time I met him. His love for his family and especially grandchildren shined through with every story he told. He was generous and thoughtful and extremely funny. His jokes really made you think and he would sometimes have to draw me pictures, I’m polish too. I will never forget when he said to me “I don’t drink any more” I said oh....and he said “but I don’t drink any less!” 😂 Rest in heaven my friend.

I will always remember Bob as having something ready, to try and make you laugh..... whether it be a play on words, a joke, or a simple observation. It was also very apparent how proud he was of his grandchildren, by the way he spoke about them on a regular basis. He will be missed.
