Getting to Know Bob
 
I was born in Santiago, Chile, of missionary parents, and lived there until I was eleven.  We moved to Colombia for a while before coming to finish high school in Bradenton, Florida.  I attend college in Maryville, Tennessee, followed by Princeton Seminary and  New York University, before returning as a missionary to Venezuela in 1952. 
 
After 26 years in Venezuela, I returned to the States in 1978 and have been working with the Presbyterian Church (USA) in Minnesota and Arizona since then. When I came to Tucson I was accompanied by my wife, the Rev. Betty May Seel, with whom I served Immanuel as Parish Associates. Betty May passed away in 2004.
 
I like all kinds of food, most of the books of the Bible (with a preference for Psalms, John and Paul) and I read books (historical novels and suspense) for a hobby. At home my radio is usually tuned in to the classical music station.
 
Immanuel has been home for me since I retired, largely for its sincere efforts to be involved in the larger community, and for its concern for mission. During my more active life I had occasion to travel a good deal and now I am glad to "set."
 
[Editor’s Note: We suspect, though, that Bob may accept the next challenge that’s presented, because that’s just what he does: only a few years ago, he took a 6-month leave from serving as Parish Associate to teach in a seminary in Barranquilla, Colombia, while one of the professors was on sabbatical.]
