  3. Ruben was my uncle through marriage. He was an encourager and a man with a mission. That mission was to tell EVERYONE he could about the Jesus he loved and served. We will miss him but only for a while. Our prayers our now for his children during this time of great loss. Carry on his legacy of hope and love.

  5. All my love and prayers to our family, the Arellanos on the passing of one of the greatest men I've ever known, my beloved, Uncle Ruben Arellano.
    There are simply not enough words to describe such a man who was so kind and caring! However the best thing about him was that he was such a man of God! Next to my own Dad, he's the only other person I know that has read the Bible cover to cover and knows it so well (I used to love sitting close by so I could hear them argue about who was right about a certain bible passage or their interpretation of one! In short, I could go on for hours about him. He was truly one-of-a-kind and will be sorely missed until that great reunion in the sky! Uncle, I never saw you often enough to say this enough, but thank you for everything you ever did for us. We love you and can't wait to see you again! God Bless! Love your niece, Sherry Barcelona (Sell)
