Richard “Dick” Selle, 86, of Loveland, passed away August 25, 2016 at his home. Dick was born to Al and Ollie (Norman) Selle on March 17, 1930 in Miles City, Montana. At the age of 3, the family moved to Aberdeen, South Dakota where he attended schools. He played the saxophone in The John Cacavas Orchestra out of high school. Dick married Nancy Guhin on November 23, 1951 in Omaha, Nebraska.
