Robert Ayars Selle

Robert Ayars Selle, 84, of Rockledge, Florida, has given all and crossed somewhere over the rainbow, and joined God's choir of angels, Friday, April 5, 2013, at Dr. Jey Pallai Center for Hospice Care at Wasdin Woods, Wuestoff Hospice, Rockledge, FL.

Mr. Selle was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, February 17, 1929. He moved to Florida in 1960, after he graduated from Purdue University. He came to Brevard County in 1968 from Miami-Dade County Florida, where he began his career with Florida Power and Light. Mr. Selle worked for Florida Power and Light as a Chemist testing water samples. He retired in 1983, with 25 years of honorable service.

He was a member of First United Methodist Church, Cocoa Florida. He was a member of the choir for many years and spent a 30 year span singing in many church choirs.

He is a charter member of the Illinois Railway Museum at Union, Illinois, The Electric Railway Clubs of Florida and The FEC Railway Society for Florida; in which he was quite active over 50 years, accumulating a large collection of trains and memorabilia.

He was a member of Automobile License Plate Collectors Association, and was an avid collector of license plates and highway signs from all over the country and the world.

He was a hospital volunteer at Wuestoff Hospital in courier service and transport service. He also volunteered at the medical facility at Health First Healthplex on Merritt Island, Florida, as well as some years at Cape Canaveral Hospital on Merritt Island. Volunteering was his life after retirement, for he loved helping people.

Survivors include his wife, Christine Rex/Selle; two sisters, Joann Hoadley-Myers and Eleanor Stanley; and various nieces and nephews.

My love, I will meet you over the rainbow someday
and walk through heaven with you.
I love you, my sweet Robert,
forever and ever, and ever, and ever.

Calling hours are 6-8 PM Thursday, April 11, 2013 at Brevard Memorial Funeral Home. Services will be held 2 PM Friday, April 12, 2013 at First United Methodist Church of Cocoa. Interment will follow at Brevard Memorial Park.
