"There was a man and see! he is no more. Before his time had come,did this man die. And his life's song was hushed before it ended...."
Thus begings a poem by Chaim Nachman Bialik, It came to mind as I entered the hospice room where Rubin lay in quiet repose,his mouth open,as if a great singer had sung his last triumphal note. Rubin was a good man....a mensch,,,a man of principla . He always tried to do the right thing. He was a kind and compassionate person.He was a wonderful and devoted husband for over 49 years to his beloved Marcia. He was a superb teacher,a celebrated artist who exhibited widely,a devote uncle and a enduring friend.For many ecades he was immersed in the ongoing activites of the Chicago Society of Artists nd the American Jewish Artists Club. Rubin always had a print in the annual Society's calendar,and participated in numerous exhibitions that the group mounted over the years.....As an active participant of the American Jewish Artists Club,Rubin served as a member of the Board of Directors for Decades....

A Special Thanks to Ann Barrett for the wonderful photo of the marker.
RS: "I handled this rope thing in several ways. See there is another one over there under glass. What I did was I went to see this very nice man named Mr. Colgut Mr. Colgut had a drapery store, once upon a time, on Broadway. Mr. Colgut used to give me the rolls of take off cord. When he would put up somebody's drapes, Mr. Colgut would take off the old rope, he'd roll it onto a big roll, and he'd put it aside. He was a very smart man. He would use it to wrap bundles and stuff. When I went there Mr. Colgut was very kind and he gave me several rolls. What I liked about it, when I went to the Field Museum I saw the remnants. The old Egyptian remnants. They were the bits and pieces they pulled out of the tomb. This is downstairs in the basement. When I looked at Mr. Colgut's rope that he gave me to play with, all of a sudden I could see the remnants. Because the sunshine fades these things, people handled them, they get oil on them, they change color over the years. So that's what I did with these things I turned them into remnants. So they're actually very historical, there is no name and phone number on them but they are part of our society. This is what we used at one time to pull the drapes."
