David Paul Rubin, elder son of Lloyd and Gloria (Sunshine) Rubin, deceased, passed away peacefully at home on Monday June 15, 2020.

He is survived by his loving wife Judith (Donaldson), stepdaughter Kathryn Word, grandchildren Samantha and Joseph Word, brother Mitchell Rubin (Patricia), their children Aaron and Sarah Rubin, cousin Meredith Lurman (Isadore), a great many other cousins, and dearest brother and sister in-law Richard Donaldson (Daphne), their children and grandchildren.

David shared his engaging smile, sense of humor and "radio voice" with all of us including the thousands of people whom he photographed during his long career. He was dedicated to providing them with the valuable gift of memories and a moment caught out of time.

Always an Eagle Scout with a gentle heart, David cared more for others than himself. He will be remembered for his devotion to his family and lifelong friends, his legendary storytelling, and for enthusiastically following NASCAR, playing golf and cheering for the NY Giants.

Burial Service will be private.

In lieu of flowers, please consider either a donation to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN, 38105 or planting a tree in David's memory.

A Gathering in Celebration of David's life will be planned for a later date.
