My beloved nephew, Reuben, was a dear and good soul, gone too soon. He was a loving, deeply caring human being. Just one example of his decency and humanity was his devotion for decades to delivering Meals on Wheels, bringing sustenance and joy to elderly people.
May his memory be for a blessing—which he surly was.

I will miss seeing Reuben at Talmud study every Saturday. His stories and reflections showed how involved he was with so many people over time and space. My condolences to his family.

My heart goes out to Reuben's family, particularly to mother Doris and brother Gary. We were chorus mates for years and Reuben always lead with caring and kindness, which the world needs and will especially miss from him. Ha’makom yenahem etkhem betokh she’ar avelei Tziyonvi’Yerushalayim.

Reuben had kindness that would bright up the room with lights when he walked in and smiled . Reuben supported me through the hardest times in my life. Never asking anything in return. I am a different person because of my life time friendship with him. My Reuben rest in peace. Sending love to all his family at this extremely hard time.
