William Allen Sellhausen of Hartford, was born to Eternal Life surrounded by his family, Monday,  June 22, 2020 the age of 72 years. He was born November 15, 1947, the son of William E. and Helen (nee Offenbecher) Sellhausen. He married the love of his life, Christine A. (nee Gudwer).

William was a great outdoorsman.  He loved hunting, fishing, black powder rifles, trap shooting and going up north. Trout fishing was a favorite pastime.  He loved his family gatherings! He took great pride in his yard, even in his failing health he made sure his peppers and tomatoes were planted.  Another favorite pastime was making and painting birdhouses BUT he did not like those pesky squirrels. William had a quick wit.  Our “rough and tough Cream puff!!”

Sellhausen, and Cindy (Mike) Rawlings, his stepson, Erick Zinda and step-daughter Amy (Sean) Gallaway.  His grandchildren; Mitchell, Hunter and Olivia Sellhausen, Seamus and Finley Gallaway, Layla, Isabelle and Aaron Zinda.  He is survived by his sister Sam (Linda) Minney and Shiranda Deerwoman.
