Service for Lee Roy Selmon Set For Friday

If you wanted to pay your last respects to Selmon, you’ll have the chance. This update from the St. Petersburg Times:

Funeral services for Selmon, the Bucs Hall of Fame defensive end and former University of South Florida athletic director, will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at Idlewild Baptist Church, 18371 N. Dale Mabry Hwy in Lutz, Fl., Rev. Jeffery Singletary confirmed Monday.

Singletary said a visitation will be held on Thursday from 5-8 p.m. at Exciting Central Tampa Baptist Church, 2923 N. Tampa St. The Selmon family will be present from 5-7 p.m.

Selmon was a huge part of the Tampa Bay area over the last 30 years, so it’s only fitting that his service be held in Tampa. He’ll be interred in Oklahoma City, his hometown.

For more on Selmon’s legacy, I recommend checking out the thoughtful remembrances written by Charlie Blackwell and J.C. De La Torre.
