    David M Rubin

    General Manager

    David's career in funeral service began when he was hired by the Morris family in 1986. He was straight out of mortuary school, and the opportunity afforded him the chance to work with old-school funeral directors who trained him not only in the art and science of funeral directing, but also about what matters to individuals and communities. With that knowledge, David enthusiastically joined many temples and Knights of Pythias fraternal organizations; he has held seats on the boards of multiple Jewish organizations. Being involved with and serving Jewish communities became and continues to be a very important part of his life. When David is not in the office, he enjoys spending time with family and working around the yard.
