Charles C. Selby Passes Away

Charles C. Selby, a longtime resident of St. Maarten and St John, died on July 25 in Miami after a long illness.

“Chux”, as he was known to many, formed a company called Poolcon, Inc. building quality swimming pools and specialized Gunnite applications throughout the Netherland Antilles, B.V.I., and U.S. Virgin Islands.

He loved watersports and especially hang gliding.

His honest and generous nature helped many.

He is survived by his two sons Scott and Michael Selby, his daughter Susan Cannon and two step daughters Valerie Carney Sims of Tortola and Leslie Carney of Bradenton, Florida. He is also survived by eight grandchildren and his ever faithful friend Tom Meacham.
