John Joseph Rubino
April 10, 1937 – May 4, 2019
John Joseph Rubino, 82, passed away after a 4 month illness in the hospital with his loving family by his side.
John was born in Akron, Ohio to Antonio and Providence Rubino. He is survived by his wife Susan of 55 years, sons Carl and Paul, and 2 grandsons Vincent and Antonio, and numerous nieces and nephews. His death was preceded by his 6 brothers—Michael, Clarence, Vito, Vince, Russell, and Joseph.
He graduated from Hower Vocational High School and went into the Army Reserves for 6 years. He was employed at Olson Electronics for 17 years as a salesman and then promoted to Manager which brought him and his family to Los Angeles, California and then to Santa Clara. John left the sales end and became a manufacturers rep, working still for the Olson family—a total of 48 years. He retired in 2004.
In his spare time, John was on the Briarwood Little League Board and managed and coached his son’s teams. He also loved to go camping with his family in their RV, and to go fishing with his best friend Steve. He and Sue loved to travel, and went on many cruises and trips to Italy, Tahiti, and other countries. The very favorite thing for John and Susan was to dance to the Joe Sharino Band.
He was a member of Unico and Italian American Heritage Foundation.
John was a very friendly, happy guy who loved to talk and always tell jokes. (Typical salesman) His favorite saying to all as they were leaving: “Thank you for Your Time, This Time, until the Next Time.” He will be missed by all his family and friends.
John’s memorial service will be May 18 at Lima Family Santa Clara at 10:30AM. Burial will be private.
Donations may be made to the American Heart Assocation.
