Obituary of Sergio Rubio
Sergio Manuel Rubio, previously of Salem, passed away peacefully on September 6, 2021 after a brief illness. He was 66 years old.
Sergio was the son of Dr. S. E. Rubio and Norah Rubio, both of whom preceded him in death. Dr. Rubio was a prominent physician and along with his wife and four children fled Cuba following the Castro overthrow of 1959. The family settled in Kinmundy then move to Salem when Sergio was in Junior High.
Sergio owned a construction company and for many years contracted with a local real estate office rehabbing homes. He loved to cook and often had friends over to share a meal or bar-b-que. He had a gregarious personality, with an ever-present smile, who was always ready to have fun.
Sergio was also a man of faith who helped comfort and console many of his friends who were in need. He will be greatly missed by his friends, family and community.
Sergio leaves behind three children; Eric Rubio, Kyle Hyler and Emilio Rubio along with three siblings, Edward Rubio, Gelsys Rubio and Elena Rubio.
A private ceremony will be held by the family at a later date. Crouse Funeral Home in Salem is assisting the family with arrangements. Online condolences can be made at www.CrouseFH.com.
