I am very sorry to hear of Reuben's passing. I worked with him for a few years at Quincy Compressor. He was so kind to me when I took over the piston compressor product line after his retirement. I still have some of the notes and photos he gave me when he retired. I kept in touch over the years by calling to ask the Quincy Compressor history questions that only Reuben knew. He was a great guy.
I pray for God's comfort for you in this time of loss.
