August 6, 1938 - January 31, 2022
Robert Wayne Selph, 83 of Kerens, TX formerly of Sparkman AR died Monday, January 31st 2022. He was born August 6th 1938 to William “Vete” and Irma Deaton Selph. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife of 23 years Linda Cherry Selph two step sons Scott and Steve Statham three brothers John, Bill and Marvin Selph and one sister Mary Elizabeth Selph Miller. To know Robert was to love him, he was always the life of the party, the center of attention, and full of fun laughter and love. He lived his life just the way he wanted. He was a master story teller whether it was the truth or not. He had your full attention when he spoke. He was a true legend in his own mind as well as to all of his family and friends. He said when I die throw a party but don’t cry for me. There is one word that no one could ever use to describe Robert that was normal, nothing about this man was normal, he was such a free spirit. Robert is survived by one step son Cliff and Christie Statham of Kerens TX, niece Lynn and Steve Mann of Sparkman AR, ten grandchildren and one sister Minta “Cricket” Selph Maffit of Conway AR, a host of nieces and nephews including his name sake Robert Russell Mann of Sparkman, a very special friend Don Mitchell of Kerens, TX, and a brother in law Benny and Sherri Cherry of Waco TX. His body was donated to the UT Southwest Medical Center in Dallas. A memorial service will be held at a later date at the Delamar Cemetery in Manning AR. A very special thank you to Roberts caretakers Cliff Christie Harmony and Clayton, we couldn’t have asked for better care for him. In lieu of flowers please donate to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital or St. Jude’s. Robert always said no child should ever die. Let’s help fight cancer in honor of our precious uncle.
