Ruben was a rancher and farmer most of his life.  He loved to go fishing and hunting.  His favorite pastime is sitting in his recliner and watching old western movies.  He was always there for everyone who needed a hand.  He was loved by everyone and will be greatly missed.

Thank you to Gary who was his caregiver for many years, as if he was his own brother.
