The baby of the 11 children born to Max and Rose Rubin. We are all grateful for the time we had with him. He spread confidence by example. He believed in himself and had the courage to go full speed ahead jump in water way over his head while learning to swim on the way up. Herb knew how to live and how to love with loyalty, commitment, strength and support. He chose the perfect mate, Esther Goldman, a woman who is beautiful inside and out, a calming influence and strong ally. They had a wonderful family with two amazing children, Michael and Paula. The family grew with the addition of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Herb’s family and many friends put a smile on his face. All are part of his legacy. A unique place in all our lives and hearts was filled by him. He was a blessing, a treasure. Knowing him and being part of his life was a privilege. He will be greatly missed.
