Selwyn Duane Mastrude, 86, was born on December 6th, 1936. On December 4th, 2023, Sel passed away peacefully, surrounded by family at Sagewood Senior Living in South Jordan, Utah. He leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter, and meaningful connections.\nA celebration of Sel's life will be held on December 16, 2023, at 11:00 am, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Baker City, Oregon.\n\nSel's life began in Joseph, Oregon, where he was welcomed into the world by his parents, Fredrick Mastrude and Agnes Lozier, as the youngest of four boys. He spent most of his childhood in Enterprise Oregon. \nIt was during his high school years that Sel first met his sweetheart, Glenda Mae Waite. Their love story began on a school bus and eventually evolved from Glenda's initial impressions of Sel and his mischievous brothers to a deep and enduring connection. Sel and Glenda fell in Love and were married for time and all eternity on April 23rd, 1957, at the Logan Utah LDS Temple. They were blessed with seven children - four boys and three girls.\nSel's professional journey took him and his family to many places as he managed JCPenney stores from Pendleton, Oregon, Pasco Washington, Bend Oregon, Boise Idaho, Moses Lake Washington, and Prineville Oregon. It was in 1976, however, that Sel found his final home in Baker City when he assumed a Mobile Oil Distributorship with his brother-in-law. This move marked the beginning of a new chapter for Sel and his family, solidifying his place in the community.\nA man of deep faith, Sel was dedicated to the LDS Church, serving in numerous callings that reflected his commitment to something greater than himself and a testimony that was unwavering. His engagement extended to the Baker City Rotary Club, where his influence was felt for many years, making a lasting impact on the community he cherished.\nAs a businessman, Sel touched countless lives through his ownership of Gas and Snack Hut, Uhaul, and 10th Street Auto. For the past 14 years, he dedicated his efforts to Gray's West Mortuary, further embedding himself in the hearts of those he served during times of sorrow.\nSel's love for the outdoors was a testament to his adventurous and fun spirit. Whether hunting, fishing, hiking, or navigating snow-covered mountains on his snowmobile, Sel found solace in nature and he loved sharing these experiences with his children, grandchildren, and a multitude of friends.\nA devoted family man, Sel adored his 24 grandchildren and each one held a special place in his heart. He was known to always offer up a kidney punch and pocket checks, and he was Mr. Fixit for his children. He always provided pop and a tank of gas whenever they visited him.\nSelwyn Duane Mastrude's memory lives on in the hearts of his children and grandchildren. He leaves behind his sweet wife, Glenda Mae Mastrude, and is survived by his loving children - Curt and Deb Mastrude, Dale Mastrude, Juliann and Craig Wilson, Scott and Robin Mastrude, Karen and Rob Eyre, and Michael and Coby Mastrude. We take comfort in the belief that he has had a sweet reunion with his youngest daughter, Kristine Vaughan. In our hearts forever, we love you Dad, May you rest in peace.
