Maroun N. Selwan was born on July 28, 1936 in Aitaneet, Lebanon. He passed away peacefully January 28, 2021 in his home in South Russell. He moved to the United States in 1995.
In Lebanon Maroun owned and operated his own automotive repair business for over 40 years. Maroun liked gardening, shopping and exercising and loved to watch wrestling smack downs. He was very progressive and lived life to the fullest. He will be remembered for his zest for life. He was a very devoted husband and father of three children. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Antoinette. Maroun’s children were his pride and joy; no sacrifice was too big in order to provide for his family and his children’s education. He adored his 8 grandchildren and was lucky enough to meet his great grandchild. He always joked that if he had known he would love the grandchildren that much he would have had them first. He was very social, had a great sense of humor and countless friends. He will be greatly missed and remembered.
