June 13, 1953 — January 14, 2024

Port Neches

Russell “Russ” Selkirk  passed away on January 14, 2024 in Beaumont, TX. He was 70 years old. Russ was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and brother.

Russell was born on June 13, 1953 in Philadelphia, PA  to his parents, Robert and Shirley Selkirk. He was raised in Cobleskill, NY where he cherished growing up with his siblings. Russ settled in the area in the mid 1970's eventually becoming a long time resident of Port Neches, TX. He started his career at Neches Butane and Gulf as an operator where he retired from Valero in the late 2000's.

Russell was an avid Houston Astros fan. He also loved high school football and especially enjoyed supporting PN-G. Russell stayed busy with the many hobbies he had. He had a passion for hot rods and dedicated his time into restoring many of them over the years. He also enjoyed gardening and working on small projects around the house. When he wasn't outside, he could often be found in the kitchen creating one of his unique recipes. Russell spent his leisure time watching Jeopardy every day and never missed an episode.

Russell is preceded in death by his parents and daughter in law, Susan “Suz” Selkirk.

He is survived by his devoted wife of forty-six years, Sheila Selkirk of Port Neches, TX; two sons, Russell Selkirk Jr. of East Norriton, PA and Scott Selkirk, his wife Danica and his beloved grandson, Orion of Port Neches, TX; his sister Barbara Howe and her husband James of Cape Coral, FL; his brothers John Selkirk and wife Terri of Cobleskill, NY; Douglas Selkirk and wife Linda of Sevierville, TN; and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Sandra and Buddy Spivey of Port Neches, TX.
