Chee, Reuben R.



Reuben R. Chee passed away in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loved ones on Sunday, August 6, 2017.

Reuben was born on May 24, 1963 in Gallup, NM to Cecil Chee and Joan Rose Lopez.

He is survived by his life partner Jim Medrano; his two sisters Phoebe Matotek and Vera Smith; his late sister Brenda Chee. Reuben had six nephews, four nieces, two great-nephews, and two great-nieces. Reuben's family did not end there, his love extended to many friends, a lot who he made through his active services in his church.

Reuben loved artwork anywhere from bead work to canvases to jewelry, etc.

He filled his life with such humor, adventure, laughter, and love. Although our hearts are filled with sorrow, we are all reminded by Reuben to love a little more, and to laugh a little harder. Reuben truly will be missed by so many people he touched, but we strongly know he will never be forgotten.

Services for Reuben will be held on Saturday, August 26th at 10 A.M. at the Queen of Heaven Church 5311 Phoenix Ave NE, Albuquerque, NM. All are welcomed to join.
