Ruben Lomeli, Sr. was born January 27, 1955 in Tijuana, Baja California. He passed away peacefully in his home April 6, 2018 from an illness of many months. He lived most of his life in Ontario, Montclair and eventually settled in Bloomington, California.

He and his seven siblings migrated to California May 14, 1968 with their mother's parents shortly after their mother Maria Anselma Hernandez Lomeli passed on in the hospital giving birth to her last child. Manuel Hernandez, his father continued his life in Tijuana as a family man and a police officer in Tijuana. Manuel passed away of Alzheimer and diabetes July 1985.

Life for the Lomeli siblings continued in Southern California. Jose Luis Lomeli, late Maria Luisa Lomeli-Campos, Josefina Lomeli, Cruz Maria Lomeli, Francisco Lomeli, Elizabeth Lomeli and Adrian Lomeli.

Ruben devoted his life to his children and completed approximately 15 years with the company Keystone as a quality control inspector. He enjoyed family gatherings at the nearest river, beach, lake or park. Some of his favorite outdoor activities included swimming, fishing, hiking and trips to Tijuana. He loved to visit his father from time to time. One of his favorite quotes when we would ask him where we were going was, "Para donde punte el guarache". This usually meant family time in the wild.

He is survived by his children, Ana Lomeli-Rivera, Susana Lomeli, Ruben Lomeli Jr., and Lizbeth Lomeli as well as ten grandchildren. Susana and her children live in Houston, Texas.

A visitation for Ruben will be held Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM, with a rosary will take place at 7PM; Funeraria Del Angel Chino, 13002 South Central Ave, Chino, CA 91710. A funeral service will occur.

Tio Ruben,

Thank you for being so kind and sharing your story with me. It was evident that you were a proud father who loved his children very much. May you rest in peace.

I sit and meditate on our time's spent together as a father would with his son. I look back on time's when you would take me by the hand and lead me. Teach me and give me lessons that were necessary for me to understand. You thought me the best that you knew and what you had experienced in your life and that I appreciate from you dad. At a young age I didn't understand many thing's, but knowing that I was with my daddy I felt protected and sure that I was in good hands. I know you loved me because you showed me more than anything. By your actions of love towards me I knew you had a heart for me. I remember the time's when you would drive us around home town's and run into friends, you would bragg about your son and showed your love. I remember the times when it was just me and you spending time at De Anza park sitting in that old green Ford pick up that everybody knew. Telling me stories or just kick in back. That green Ford machine took us places, left us places and kept the memories in our family with a empty gallon of gas to spare in case we ran out fuel. I can go on and on about the memories you left me and the rest of us, but more that anything the love you shared with us all went above and beyond measure. You gave it your best and I YOUR SON GIVE YOU THE HONOR FOR YOUR BEST. I LOVE YOU DADDY.
I leave this picture in memory of MY LOVE IN RETURN TO YOU.
