dream. He would not have been able to give them that life if they stayed in Mexico. Ruben worked in
construction his whole life. He loved the game of soccer. He started playing soccer around the age of 10
and continued into his late 30’s. He played as a third string backup soccer player for the professional
soccer team “Cruz Azul”. His other hobbies were playing pool, shuffleboard, and the guitar. When he
was a teenager in Mexico, he and his friends used to serenade on special occasions for their moms and

want to be a friend. El siempre fue una persona alegre y esa alegría la trasmitía a los que lo rodeaban.
