In March of 1999,Dr. Seume married his wife, Kat. They live in Pearland with their two children, Mary and Ricky. They attend First United Methodist Church of Pearland where they are involved in the Shepherd Ministry and enjoy leading their Sunday school class.
Dr. Seume enjoys having a small- town dental practice and is actively involved in the community of Hitchcock. He is a two- time past president of the Hitchcock Chamber of Commerce and a current board member. He always participates in the annual Hitchock Good Ole Days festival, volunteering where needed during the weekend. He is also a member of the La Marque Rotary Club. Yearly, Dr. Seume presents oral health education at the local schools. He also supports youth sports, the local Boy Scouts, and sponsors a physically challenged child in the Turning P.O.I.N.T. Fishing Tournament.
Two of Dr. Seume’s favorite past times are duck hunting and fishing. He remembers coming to Hitchcock numerous times as a child to get to the boat ramp on Second Street or to duck hunt on Hall’s Ranch. His third passion is talking about duck hunting or fishing. Often times his assistant has to interrupt his conversation with one of his patients regarding current fishing reports to remind him that he has work to do and fishing has to wait.
