Aberle, Rueben - Peoria  
PEORIA - Rueben Jacob "Shorty" Aberle, 91, formerly of Peoria, passed away at 7:42 a.m. Friday, July 17, 2015, from Alzheimer's in hospice in Brooksville, Fla., surrounded by his loving family. He will be interred at 11 a.m. on Dec. 7, 2015, at the Veterans Cemetery in Bushnell, Fla. Rueben was born to Carl and Lydia Aberle in Strawn, Ill. He is survived by his wife, Kathleen; daughters, Linda Aberle and Patricia (John) VandeMerkt; grandson, Aaron (Elizabeth); and granddaughters, Casey and Taylor. He is also survived by his brother, Harold; sisters, Lois (George) Fisher, Ann (Roy) Mauer and Rose Huette; and many loving nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Elmer (Shirley), William (Jean) and Ezra (Judy); and sisters, Elizabeth (Clarence) Culkin and Leota (James) Byrd. Rueben joined the Army Air Corps after high school. It was towards the end of World War II when he finished his training in Colorado Springs, Colo. He always joked that he was in "the big war over Colorado." When he returned home after the service, Rueben went to work for Caterpillar in Peoria. This led to a career with Patten Industries in the Bellwood, then Elmhurst, suburbs of Chicago. He sold power generation systems that were installed into everything from locomotives to high rise buildings, and even O'Hare airport. He was with Patten for over 35 years. Always the salesman, when he retired, he sold homes in Florida, until in 2005, when his disease made selling impossible. During his final years, he never lost his sense of humor or his love for his family. Rueben was a true Leo. A father's strength is deeply rooted, by love he will be remembered, and in memory he will live. Memorials may be made to HPH Hospice, 12260 Cortex Blvd., Brooksville, FL 34613, in Rueben's name.

He was born March 8, 1939, to Joseph and Marguerite (Airola) Barnabee. He married Sue Melton on Sept. 9, 1962, in Galesburg, Ill. His wife survives, along with daughters, Susan (Kelly) Long of Farmington, Ill., and Karen (Todd) Osing of Morton, Ill.

Ed was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in March of 2013. He was a nearly two and a half year survivor who maintained his active lifestyle after diagnosis, despite undergoing multiple surgeries, rounds of chemotherapy and participation in a clinical trial. Because most people have very limited time left after diagnosis, his family has established the Edward J. Barnabee Fund for Pancreatic Cancer Research with Illinois Cancer Care in Peoria, Ill. To honor Ed's life and family, contributions to this fund may be made through the Bank of Farmington, 16 N. Main St., Farmington, IL 61531. According to Ed's wishes, there will be no public services. A private remembrance will be held at a later date. The family would like to thank his doctors, friends, neighbors and extended family members for their support.
