Dear Ruth and Mark:

I was so very sorry to hear of your beloved husband and father passing. I know you can take comfort in the knowledge that he has received his Glory in the presence of his Lord.

I am so privileged to have known Julius all my life, as well as you, Ruth and Mark. Our lives were made better by being a part of your lives. Mark, I know you have done so much for your parents over

Mark and Aunt Ruth:

I didn't know Julius very well, because life took us in different directions, but I do have fond memories of him during family times, especially a Christmas in Del Rio, where he was trying to show my then 13 month old daughter Crystal, how to stack some colored rings into one of those Fisher-Price toys, and she ended up handing him the rings and making him do all the work. How we all laughed that day! To

Mark, Jeff, Ruth and family,

Rosie and I would like to say the following: 1) Mark and Jeff are very devoted to their parents on a consistent basis; 2) hence, such parents are lucky and proud; and 3) beside what was written in the obituary, which is all true, Julius left another legacy via his filmmaking endeavors that many are not aware of. We will never forget how Julius enjoyed his own films via DVD format at the Summit: some of his films contributed to the success of the TAD film in 2009.

Dear Ruth, Mark and Jeff,
My heart is sad for Julius's passing but elated for his new life in Heaven. I know that Julius loved you all dearly and would have stayed forever by Ruth's side.
He is a wonderful example to all who have known him as a loving husband, father and friend to all. I was blessed in my life to have Ruth and Julius as my Godparents and feel it was such a honor for me.

Being 12 years old and growing up, I lacked a male figure to whom I would respect and emulate. I choose JP to be that person. He was my cadet commander at the time I was enrolled at TSD. He was a tower of strength whenever he stood at attention with his chest puffed out. He commanded respect from all the boys assigned to Koen Hall. Since then and for the past 70 years, JP has helped me become the

Mark & Jeff, May you feel the strength from all the love your Dad had for you and that he had from so many others. I remember how, as a fledgling interpreter, he always made me feel comfortable and welcome in the community. His energy and passion in all aspects of life was one to be marvelled. He will be greatly missed, but his spirit always with us.

Mr. Seeger was a person I only knew casually as someone associated with some of the members of the Deaf school as a volunteer to one of the homes for the deaf many years ago. I admired his wife, Ruth very much also, and was very proud of their son, Mark. It was through Mark I learned about Texas relay and remember when he took me on a tour of the building when it was brand new. I am totally

Cousin Julius was always one of my favorite people. He LOVED his family... I don't mean just Cousin Ruth and Mark.... his ENTIRE family.... ALL of us! He always wanted to know what was happening in our lives... and he never forgot from one time to the next. He was a great communicator. He never leaned on his deafness as a handicap. He'd do whatever it took to get his point across. He was one also one of the funniest

I will remember visiting with you at The Summit and bringing you Frito's and candy and seeing your face light up and your eyes widen.
I will remember the way you doted over mom, always making sure she was being treated well.
I will remember our Thanksgiving lunch with mom and Mark.
I will remember how happy it made you to be the father of such a successful son. Oh, how you loved your Mark!
You will be missed Julius. I loved the silly side of you.
Prayers and heartfelt sympathy to Mark and Mom.

To Ruth, Mark, Jeff and family: Julius was a man that was unassuming, fun, honest, and there was no pretense whatsover with this gentleman. He had no guile. I witnessed countless displays of selfless altruism and he wanted to improve the lives of others. His upbringing, no doubt, provided ample and solid guidance in steering him well through life. He is a dying breed-- a protector and provider for his family, a civic servant, a patriot, and a first class

Dear Ruth, Mark and friends of Austin,
