Ruben Sorhegui - 1930-2016
We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Ruben Sorhegui (age 86) on August 25, 2016, in his home in Naples, Florida.
He was a man of profound intelligence and integrity. Born in Guanajay, Cuba, he moved to Naples in the 80s and in 1983, founded Ruben Sorhegui Tile Dist., Naples finest showroom, known not only for its finest products but as a warm, family business, where contracts are sealed with handshakes and birthdays are still celebrated.
He was a kind and loyal friend who cared deeply for his family: his beloved wife Margarita, his sons Rubencito, Robert, Tony (and his wife Eva), his daughter Maggie, his grandchildren Rey (and wife Erin), Robert, Michael, Natalie, Antonio, Victoria, Isabella, and his new great-grand-daughter Grace.
He loved to talk about the old days and he loved to take many, many pictures at a time. He had a remarkable memory and he will be remembered for his wit, charm, storytelling and sense of humor, as well as his love of racy jokes. He hated vegetables and phonies, not necessarily in that order.
We honor his memory in living by his values and energy for life and remembering that laugh and that smile that always brightened the day. He will be missed most deeply his many, many friends and family here and everywhere.
