Ruben was born in Rostern, Saskatchewan on October 23, 1940 and grew up in Waldheim. Married in 1962 Ruben drove commercial transport vehicles, and spent the majority of his adult life in Kamloops, where he and his wife raised their family. Ruben worked for Arrow Transport for many years, earning a number of safe driving awards and retired from 5771 Holdings at age 63 due to health concerns.
In his retirement years, Ruben enjoyed working around the house completing small projects and gardening. He also enjoyed puzzles, Sudoku and small investments. Ruben was a man of integrity and lived his life with the utmost loyalty to friends and family. He instilled these qualities in his children and this legacy has also been passed onto his grandchildren. His memory will be cherished until we meet again.
