For all the yesterdays...

FOUR DECADES! To say we grew up with Ron and Ilene is exactly that. We raised our families together and became so close it melded into one. It's difficult to single out one memory as there are so many. But I have to smile as I recall the numerous businesses Ilene and I were forever conjuring up and Ron knew what that meant- Business Cards! How could we start a business without our cards and how he laughed at us. But Ron, being Ron, created our "Gal Motion" with the cutest logo, the best-ever illustration of "Jock Strop" and the "Banana Warmers"...all with tongue in cheek fore we never went through with our ventures. I remember all the fun we had working in his office on the launch of Slo Pitch Magazine. How he would shake his head finding Ilene and I lounging in the pool with wine and a book in our faces. Nobody could build a sandwich like Ron; took forever as he meticulously created his lox and bagel masterpiece (all while we waited to eat) and nobody could come close to his infamous ice cream sundaes. I laugh and cry when I think of the Polish New Years party and, of course, Ron and "pinecones". But most of all how much he loved his "Ilene", Jeff and Marta. How proud he was at being such a young grandpa to 6 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren. He loved his family. So many memories! One thing is for sure, you will never be forgotten. Love you Ron.

We have planted trees in Israel in honor of Ron's life. He may be gone from the physical presence we all know but he will live on in nature.

Ron I love and miss you my old friend. We met as young couples back in the 1960's. We shared many good meals and great times but most of all great laughs. We were playing Trivial Pursuit and the answer was suppose to be Hop-a-long Cassidy....Ron in all his enthusiasm shouts out the answer as Hop-a-long had to hear the laughter and every now and then I would call him my Hop-a-long Pickens. Yes, Ron I will miss your smile and your e-mails and knowing even though you were three thousand miles away, you were always there. Rest in peace and we will all see you someday. Love your forever friend.

I have such heart felt memories of Ron. He was filled with funny jokes, fun times and was so creative. I remember hanging out at your house in Northridge playing and he always had a smile on his face. Always wanted to play with me but I was way too shy but he still flashed that awesome smile and tried. I loved his warm and sweet energy. He was such a great father and my parents loved him too. I remember how much he loved his little schnauzers especially Pepsi. There are so many memories and my heart is heavy for the loss of such an amazing father, husband and friend. My deepest condolences to your family. Love to you all, Samantha Sackler. (Bruno)

Hello Rubenstein Family I just wanted to send a letter about how sorry I am for your loss. Ron Rubenstein was a Great man. When I was living in California he was a Great Mentor for me, he opened up his home and his business and his heart to me to talk about DREAMS and History of Sports and I loved it. I would go over to the house every Tuesday night and Ron opened his home to me and we would sit and have dinner that he would fix for us. His favorite was Fish with Creole seasoning and Cuscus. However the most Amazing thing is that I am what you would call the Step Father to his Grand kids Ben and Molly but that term was never used he treated me as one of the family. I am so thankful that our paths crossed. I am a better Man Husband and Father because of it. You will be missed but never for gotten Pop Pop Ron Thank you, Ryan Prather

Right now I'm in shock. God bless Ron. I thought all this was because he was retiring Irene sooo sorry. Ron. I met both time and Irene over 30 years ago I'm a server and the two would come into my restraunt. They were just always so kind and encouraging. They became friends. Although we lost touch. He was so kind and tried to get my then baby girl into a commercial. I'm sadden by my just relizing he's gone. God bless you Ron When I think of you and your family I always smile Xxoo to you and yours.

My favorite memory of Ron is the way he smiled when he would bite into his chocolate croissant. Sunday morning coffee is when Carl amp; I will miss him the most.

I am just so glad I met you over 30+ years ago. My happiest moment was at our reunion this past September. God Bless you Ron, and may you R.I.P.

...Dodger games, playing Barbies in Glade Ave courtyard, Trick or Treating, swimming in your pool, hearing your Dad yell Ma'w'rta in his very special way, weddings, FB, his big smile...he and Ilene always so warmly welcoming me into their home... I'm so grateful to have known him and hope all our lives will be continually be touched by the life he lived so well. Sending much love to all Ron's family and friends.
