Resident of Scotts Valley
Det. Lt. Bob Seely passed away on Dec. 5, 2012 of pulmonary fibrosis. He died peacefully surrounded by family while in the arms of a firefighter.
Bob served in the US Navy for 4 years, the US Marshal's office for 8 years, and Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety from 1963-87.
Bob is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jimmae, and their four children: Steve, Scott (Emma), Mike, and Sue (Ken). He has one cherished granddaughter, Amber Herfurth, and his loving sister, Sandra Weissel (Don Fosse).
We are blessed to have been loved by such an incredible man. He is sorely, and sweetly, missed and deeply loved. It is with heavy heart that we say goodbye to our husband, dad, brother, papa, friend.
A celebration of life will be held in January 2013. We welcome donations to Hospice of Santa Cruz in Bob's name.
