Saying Goodbye

Last month, SWA paid tribute to Harry Rubin to let him know how much we appreciated and cared about him.  Harry passed away Thursday, August 29, after battling cancer.  Below is his obituary from his hometown paper.

Retired U.S. Army Col. Harry Rubin died Aug. 29, 2013. He was preceded in death by his wife of 59 years, Deloris F. Rubin.  He was a military veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam. He proudly served his country for 32 years and retired at Fort Stewart in 1975.  He is survived by his daughters, Sandra Coyle (Charles) of Flemington, N.J., Debra Montano of Annandale, Va., and Barbara Rubin of Savannah; and his two grandsons, Trevor Montano (Regina) and Jason Montano.

Col. Rubin will be buried at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to Spanish Oaks Hospice, 8510 Whitfield Ave., Savannah, GA 31406.

Online condolences can be made at Carter Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.

We will miss you, Harry.
