Funeral Service (10 am – 12 pm) May 21, 2020 Leber Funeral Home 2000 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, Union City, NJ 07087 Orlando Ruiz went to heaven to be in the presence of God, together with his parents, Benito and Amada, his sister Zaida, and brother Orestes on May 18, 2020.

Orlando lived in North Bergen, NJ with his beloved wife Gladys, of 58 years. He was best known to his family and closest friends lovingly, as "Chicho."

A man with a big heart, who sacrificed everything for his family when he left Cuba looking for a better life for them. In addition to his wife, daughter, son-in-law, and grandchildren, he will be remembered by his beloved sister Dalia and brother-in-law Wilfredo, his nieces, Odalys, Arelys, Orlando y Bierca and his great-nephews: Pepito, Chris, Andy, Cindy, Biany and Wilfredo

Chicho was always a hardworking family man, a wonderful father, amazing uncle and a good friend. He was very strong but had a gentle side. His family was the most important thing for him. A man of few words, but you felt the warmth of his heart.

Chicho will always be our hero, the person who although you did not see him daily, loved you with all his heart! We will never forget you! Rest in Peace!

Thank you for your prayers and support during our time of loss. It has meant a lot for our family.

Tío Chicho, nunca me olvidare de ti. Lo mucho que nos querías, los viajes en tus motos de Harley Davidson, las veces que te vestiste de Santi Claus para tus sobrino/as-nietos. El día que me llevaste al hospital cuando estaba de parto de Cindy y Sandy y manejaste bien despacio para llegar bien. Siempre me acordaré de las visitas todos los fines de semana para jugar con los jemelos. Gracias por ser parte de nuestra vida - hasta que nos veamos otra vez mi tiito lindo. Te extraño mucho. Besitos de Aré.

Tío Chicho i will never forget you. How much you loved us, the rides you gave me on your Harley, the many times you dressed up as Santa Claus for your niece and nephews. The time you took me to the hospital because I was in labor with Cindy and Andy and you drove really slow to make sure we would get there safe. I will always remember every weekend when you would stop by to play with the twins. Thank you for being part of my life until we see each other again my sweet Tío, I miss you very much, kisses from Aré.
