Rubén will be missed tremendously by his wife of almost 50 years, Gloria. They were inseparable. He was the loving father of Carmen (José) Lopez and Robert Rodriguez. He was a master storyteller to his grandchildren, Gloria (Lori) and José Rubén (Joey), whom he loved so much.
Rubén was born in Coacalco, Mexico on May 21, 1944. There he leaves behind his brothers German and Gabriel and his sister María del Carmen, as well as countless cousins and other family members. He is predeceased by his brother Pablo and his parents Soledad and Nagge.
He will be missed by his in-laws in England, especially Ian and Susan Beale.
His absence will be greatly felt by his dear friends Jim and Cheryl Dolson of Cambridge and their family, as well as Milton and Maria Ramos of Hamilton.
As per his wishes, there will not be a memorial service. He would have liked for donations to be made to The Lupus Foundation of Canada or to your local food bank.
As a kidney recipient in 2005, he would have also liked for everyone to register as organ and tissue donors.
