Robert "Bob" Seller, 88 years old and cherished by all of his family and friends, left this world peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, Nov. 18, 2012.
The Guest Book is expired.
He was a longtime resident of Alamogordo and Albuquerque, a lifelong Chicago Cubs man, avid Lobo basketball fan and lover of trains since the circus came to his hometown of Lincoln, Ill.
Robert is survived by his loving partner Carol Smith, also of Albuquerque. He is also survived by his daughter Mary Jane and husband, Skip Simpson, of Spokane, Wash., and their two sons Mike, of Midland, Texas, and Dan, of Spokane; his daughter Trudelle Bunn, of Albuquerque, and her son Jordan, and her daughter and son-in-law, Chelsea Bunn and Nick Caruso, of Staten Island, N.Y.; his daughter Mary Seller, of Fort Walton Beach, Fla.; and his daughter Frances Montoya and her two daughters, Hannah and Magdalena, all of Albuquerque.
His family was most fortunate to have his love, strong faith, common sense and humor in their lives for so many years.
Robert was preceded in death by his only sibling, Mary Seller Shay, and his two wives, Anna Trudel Seller and Kathleen Mulligan Seller.
From the blended families of these two blessed marriages he will be remembered by many nieces and nephews, all fond of Uncle Bob.
We will celebrate the life of Robert Seller by a visitation from 4-6 p.m. at French-Lomas followed by a rosary at 6 p.m. A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at the Shrine of St. Bernadette, where Robert had been a longtime parishioner, on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012, at 9 a.m. Burial will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery.
