RUBEN CHAVARRIA, JR.

August 1, 1940 – December 10, 2023

 

Ruben Chavarria, Jr., 83, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Sunday, December 10, 2023.

 

A proud Martin High Alum of 1958 and a United States Air Force veteran, Ruben is going to be missed by all who knew him and loved him. He was truly a one-of-a-kind person, who always had a positive attitude and whose heart was big and generous. Everyone that met him left feeling uplifted and loved. A true teacher, those of us in his orbit learned what it was to be kind and giving, and the importance of taking care of family and friends. Beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and friend, we love you and will miss your hugs, texts, and humor.

 

He was preceded in death by his parents Ruben and Angelina Chavarria; sisters Olga Chavarria Jimenez and Arabella Chavarria.
