R.I.P. Alan Gruben
« on: October 11, 2015, 05:21:58 am »
My wife's father, Alan Gruben, passed suddenly, yesterday at 5 PM. My wife is devastated. She and him did not grow up in a healthy family. Her mom and dad were not meant for each, so a terrible life at home. He was an alcoholic. About 22 years ago, after he divorced, my wife reached out to him to start a new relationship. He had quit drinking and found a woman to be with. Ever since, my wife and her father had a great relationship.

The man I knew was very happy and fun to be around. While his health slowly declined, his internals suddenly started shutting down. He went in Tuesday with breathing problems, but I suspect other problems as well.

He will be missed. You knew when Alan was in the room. Not overly charismatic, just engaging.

Take care Alan... You will be missed.
