Ruben G. Montalbo, 60, of Tempe, passed away on August 23, 2013 and is in the arms of our loving Lord and Savior. He is survived by his beloved wife and soul mate of 39 years, Anna, and his loving children Ruben and Reina. Ruben deeply loved his wife and children.
A citizen of Tempe for over 30 years, Ruben retired from the Tempe Elementary District in 2009 after serving with dedication as a second-grade teacher at Holdeman Elementary School.
Ruben touched many lives as a husband, father, son, brother, teacher, colleague, friend and member of the community. He will be genuinely missed by all.
A memorial mass will be held in Ruben's honor at St. Mary's Basilica in Phoenix on Friday, September 6 at 10:00 a.m.; a reception will follow immediately in the parish hall.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Mary's Food Bank http://www.firstfoodbank.org/get-involved/donate, or canned and packaged goods may be brought to the service. Ruben believed that children and families should never go hungry, and he never missed an opportunity to donate to families in need.
