Dear Dorothy, we were saddened to read about Ruben's passing in the London Free Press on March 15. You had a very long and happy marriage with him. We hope you will have ample time to mourn his death and to be comforted by God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Rejoice that Ruben is now in heaven with his Lord and Saviour. John and Louise Hush

Ruben was such a wonderful man. Having grown-up two doors over and spending so much time together, Ruben holds a special place in my heart. He was a kind, compassionate and fun loving person. I have fond memories of him showing me his rock tumbling equipment in the basement, how to make a neon sign, playing in the Volkswagen camper van in the driveway, and talking about his tennis and wind surfing. I enjoyed our visits and phone calls in the later years. On behalf of the Balsdon family, we extend our deepest sympathies to Dorothy, Anna and Matthew.❤️
