Reb Reuven was originally from Montreal, and a well-noted askan.
He was Meyased the Chevra Kadisha of Montreal, the old-age home, built the first Mikva, and was the one that many turned to for help.
His Levaya was held Thursday night at Beis Medrash Beis Mordechai, the Shul he has been Davening in. From there, the Aron was brought to Montreal, where another Levaya and Kevurah were held.
He leaves behind two sons who reside in Montreal, his son R’ Shmuel (Lakewood), and three daughters in Lakewood – Mrs. Sara Schreiber, Mrs. Yehudis Schiffer, and Mrs. Tamar Rottenberg.
