Condolence & Memory Journal

Ruby has a special place in my family's heart. Ruby and Ronie played match maker for me, their neighbour on Lincoln Avenue, and a 'nice guy' who tended bar at the Blew Inn. Mark and I have been married nearly 15 years and our son will soon turn 13. We joked about how they needed to find someone to replace Ruby's help with household emergencies before they moved across town. Mark & Lisa Tennessen

I'm so sorry for your loss. I didn't know Ruby, but I know his son Greg, Ruby Jr., and he is a very special person, so I'm thinking "the nut doesn't fall far from the tree" so Ruby Sr., must have been very special too. My prayers go out to all of you.

Our deepest sympathy to Reuben's family. Always a gentleman and proud second to none veteran. We will miss Ruby at our reunions, he was so much a part of the 2ID branch.
