Cindy and I worked with Ruben many years at Target. He was a fine man and always a friend to everyone. One of the things we remember was he seemed to always be on the move and smiling as he went about his tasks of the day. Prayers are with the family and we enjoyed the pictures!

Mr. Ruben, you worked with my dad and brother back in the 1970's. You were always the sweetest and happiest man I ever knew. You started the nickname for my dad, Mr. Ed. You will be missed and cherished always. You were the best customer ever when I worked at 7-11 at 47th and Camp Robinson.
