After graduating from BHS in 1964, I spent the next four years in Washington, D.C.at Georgetown University. During this time and for the two summers following graduation in 1968, I volunteered with the Boy Scouts working with boys from Washington's inner-city. I earned my Bachelor's Degree in International Relations from the School of Foreign Service.
From 1968 until 1974 I was in Boston, Massachusetts pursuing theological studies at St. John's Seminary and the Boston Theological Institute. After obtaining my Bachelor of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees, I went to Peru in 1974 with the Society of St. James and served as a deacon for one year and as a parish priest and pastor for another 5 years in the town of Talara in northern Peru. I returned to Arizona in 1979 after meeting my soul mate and life partner, Raynelda Farías Rosas, a high school teacher in Talara. We were married in Mexico City in 1979 and have lived in Tucson since then.
I began post-graduate studies in Political Science and Latin American Studies at The University of Arizona in 1980 and received my PhD degree in Political Science in 1985. While finishing my dissertation and looking for a job, I taught for a semester at the University of Missouri in St. Louis and briefly at Pima Community College and the Thunderbird Graduate School for International Management. In 1986 I took a position at the UA's Center for Latin American Studies which eventually became a tenured appointment. I served as the Center's Associate Director, student advisor, and Graduate/Undergraduate program director for 26 years until retirement in 2012.
My wife and I have two sons, Raúl Eduardo (1980) and Carlo Fernando (1985). Raúl and his wife Jennie blessed us with our first grandchild, Caiden Richard (2013). Fortunately, both of our sons live and work in Tucson.
Raynelda retired from teaching High School Spanish in 2013, and so ---when we are not organizing or fixing things around the house--- we have begun to do a bit of traveling, taking walks and hikes together, and volunteering with an organization working on migrant issues, as well as with a Yaqui youth group in Old Pascua. We especially enjoy being grandparents, and are certainly looking forward to seeing and renewing acquaintances with friends and classmates from half a century ago!
