Omega ..... Ray Rubio, EpSig 1002

Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet, and one of its meanings it that it symbolizes an end .....

Old Bro Network, with respect and condolences to all of his family, friends, and brothers, is sad to report the passing of our brother Ray Rubio (EpSig 1002), who left us on March 4, 2017 after battling pancreatic cancer for the past several months.



David Neuman (EpSig 853) announced Ray's passing on social media, as follows .....

Yesterday, it was a my honor and privilege to help my dear friend and brother, Ray Rubio, cross over following a savage, months-long struggle with pancreatic cancer. Ray's time on this planet ended at 1:53pm Saturday afternoon, surrounded by family and friends, and under superb care.

What a delight it was to be best friends with Ray for over 30 years. He was a gifted practitioner of acupuncture and Chinese medicine, a swashbuckling adventurer, a devoted father, and a ferociously loyal friend. Thank you Ray for showing us how to go with honor, courage, and grit. I love you forever buddy.


Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince;
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.


Raymond E. Rubio, February 21, 1962-March 4, 2017


Brian Cohen (EpSig 914) also commented on Ray's passing .....

Today we lost a friend, a brother, a father, a teacher, a healer. We lost a loved one who would do anything for us. To the very end he lived life on his own terms and taught us how to move on with dignity and stoicism - thank you for that and for everything. We love you Ray Rubio, and, until our paths cross again.


As with all the others who have left us way too soon, Ray will remain on the OBN roster with the status "In Memoriam".


Ray's family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the college fund established for Ray's children ..... you can donate to that fund by clicking HERE.

A very special thank you to all of you EpSigs out there who have already contributed to this crowdfunding effort ..... if you haven't yet, please give generously in remembrance of our brother Ray Rubio and in your support of Savannah & Jesse Rubio's college fund.


In ZAX,
MJH
