Ruben was born November 18, 1929 to Henry & Alice (Cain) Green at home in Bayard, Nebraska. Ruben was a loving son and helped his family in so many ways.  He farmed with his father & mother until their passing.  He raised cattle, was a seed corn dealer and later an over the road truck driver, as owner/operator for Grand Island Express.   Upon retiring from trucking, he worked as a greeter at the North Wal-Mart which he loved.  He enjoyed meeting people and making new friends.  He was a people person that never knew a stranger and would visit with everyone.

He is survived by his loving partner, Shirley Klinginsmith of over 35 years, of St. Paul; one daughter and her three children;  his son’s two children whom he was close to,  Shaina Green-Stricker of Scottsbluff and Stefanie Green Ramirez of Gering; his son’s four grandchildren; as well as his son’s six great-grandchildren; his loving step-children who were his family in St. Paul, Debra, Lona, Mark and Kim Klinginsmith; step-grandchildren and their spouses, Justin & Abbey Wichmann and their four children; Cedric & Rachel Wichmann and their three children; Anna & Brian Mariarty and their two children; Krystal Grothe and her child; and Kash Grothe.  He loved them dearly and they loved him! 

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Ruben Lynn; brother, Gerald; and two infant brothers.

He had a happy fun life and will be missed by all who knew him.  God speed dear Ruben.
