June 12, 1971- November 30, 2023
Ruben Herrera was born on June 12th, 1971 in Zacatecas, Mexico. He was one of fifteen children born to Pedro Herrera and Elvira Duran. Most of his childhood was spent in Torreón, Coahuila with his family. There he began his career as an accountant, but he later realized his true passion was elsewhere. At nineteen, he migrated to the U.S. to start the next chapter of his life. He found his passion in the auto industry. He loved working on cars and didn’t care what his title was as long as he was learning and working on them.
Ruben took his passion & love of cars and made a career out of it. He started at a car wash to become one of the top auto body technicians in Southern California. He was a hard worker until the very end and was without a doubt a dedicated employee. In his early twenties, he started a family and ended up having 4 children. One thing we all knew about Ruben, is that he loved being a father and seeing his kids grow up.
He was the life of the party, everybody loved when he was around regardless of the given state of his nature. He made everyone feel welcomed, regardless if they were family or not. He had a great heart and was a kind, gentle, loving person. Ruben was a father, brother, uncle, godfather, and grandfather and will be deeply missed.
