Reuben Benjamin Trujillo, 19 years old, was tragically taken from us on Friday November 4, 2022. He is survived by his parents Robert and Tara, his brothers Rudy, Roberto, Robbie, and Roman, his sister-in-law Amy, and his fiancée Alyssa. He is preceded in death by his grandpa’s Rudy and Alex and his uncles Stanley and Richard. Starting at the young age of 6, he began operating heavy equipment, and was preparing to take over his father’s business Excel Excavating Inc. Reuben was an avid snowboarder and spent all winter on the slopes. When not shredding, his biggest passion was restoring old vehicles, his favorite was a project 1965 Ford F-100. He planned to spend the rest of his life with his fiancée Alyssa in the town they grew up in, close to his mom who makes the best food, his dad who taught him all he knows, his older brothers who he looked up to so much, and his baby brothers who looked up to him so much. Reuben was hardworking, strong in his faith, and loving to all. He will be missed beyond words.
