So sorry for your loss. I enjoyed talking to him when he would come into the store as well as his other family members.

Mr. Ruben was a ray of sunshine when he would come into our location and he gave the best hugs. I often was inspired and asked him to tell me stories of when he worked for the police department or the army, he always had a good one to tell. My heart is heavy but my spirit rejoices because Heaven just received another angel. All my love and prayers to the family, I will miss him and think of him often. Always, Jodean Peeples FSB.
Ruben was a blessing to his family and everyone he met. If we could see with our spiritual eyes, we would have witnessed an awesome homecoming celebration, when Ruben entered the gates of heaven. All of his loved ones to welcome him home. He has a young handsome body, no more pain, heartaches or tears. May God bless his family with peace and cover them with his hand of protection.
There are 7 of us that will be in Conway the 1st week of April, and had planned to have lunch with Ruben. He was loved by so many.

To a Christian, brother, mentor and most of all a friend. I didn't know Ruben when he was a soldier in the Army, although I served 20 years. I didn't know Ruben when he was a Police Officer, although I am in my 15th year. I knew Ruben as a Christian and learned of the other accomplishments later. Rubens life here on earth was an example for me to follow. He was a Christian, husband and father. I called him my brother and my friend. I already miss him.
As fine a man as Conway will ever see. A true Christian and gentleman and a man I am proud to have known.
I met Ruben back in the mid 50's. I joined the Civil Defense Department and worked with the police Department, guarding the money and directing the traffic. I wanted to join the Conway Police Dept and Ruben was the kindness instructor, he never got upset. He worked with me on a 21 page application for the Federal Communication Commission, to operate the radio's. He also helped me with the application to be hired for the police department. Chief Hensley hired me but Ruben misunderstood my age. I should have been 21 but was only 20, so they let me go after the first month. I lent Ruben a 38 nickel plated pistol which he liked. Before he retired he gave it to the police department to be put on display, he was going to check and see if it was still there, so I could get it back. We had plans to see him Thursday the 3rd of April, for lunch. So sorry for your loss and we are saddened that we could not visit with him or be there for the funeral.

Ruben was an outstanding NCO who loved his God, His Family and his Work. As one who served with Ruben in peace and in war, I saw how on many occasions he led by example. Always up front and always taking care of his men. He turned down a battlefield commission in Korea so that he could remain with the same unit and the same men. Without a doubt he was the most outstanding Non Commissioned Officer (NCO) in my company. A true hero of the 7th Infantry Regiment and the 3rd Infantry Division. He deserves now to rest in peace and I'm sure that he is! John L. Insani Colonel US Army Ret.
My deepest condolences go out to the family. Mr. Goss will truly be missed.
