Les David Seleen, 69, of Sweet Home passed away Friday, April 1, 2022 at his daughter's home in Lebanon, surrounded by his family.

He was born Aug. 31, 1952, in Burns to Theodore Robert and Betty Lou (Bridgeman) Seleen.

He was raised in Sweet Home, graduating from Sweet Home High school in 1970.

Les then went on to work for G&H logging, until he was hired at Teledyne Wah Chang in 1974, from which he retired in August 2020. He spent 46 years there and loved his job. He built so many friendships during that time and created lifelong relationships.

Les met Candace Louise Clark of Sweet Home, and they were married in October of 1972. They had three daughters, Crystal, born in March of 1973, Daisy in January 1975, and Amy in June of 1976.

They raised their family in Albany. Les and Candy were married 25 years before separating in 1997. Les moved back to Sweet Home and stayed until a month before his death.

Les loved his girls, his grandkids, and great-grandkids.

He was a member of the Sweet Home Elks Lodge and loved the community of Sweet Home. He enjoyed fishing, crabbing, road trips, coast trips, wheeling and dealing vehicles, and was the life of any party.

He is survived by his daughters, Crystal Kimball and her husband Bryan of Lebanon, Daisy Garber and her husband Jeff of Sumpter, and Amy Roos and her husband, Nate of Puerto Rico; grandkids Carter and Cole Kimball of Lebanon, Shea, Nikki, and Faith Roos of Lebanon, Luke Garber of Sumpter, and Halie Sadowsky of Baker City; great-grandkids Nathan VanEpps and Prestlie Kimball; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ted and Betty Seleen; brothers Greg Seleen and Stan Seleen; and sister Diane Seleen.

A celebration of life will be held at noon Sunday, May 22, at the Sweet Home Elks Lodge, 440 Osage St., Sweet Home.

Private burial will be held at Crawfordsville Cemetery.
