William (Billy) Mayer Rubin
William Mayer Rubin, 67 years of age, of Unionville, CT died Monday, November 17. Born in Brooklyn, NY, and raised in Wethersfield, CT, Bill was the son of the late Harry and Gloria (Mestel) Rubin. He was a retired, high achieving Sales Representative of Brescome Distributors. Bill left us a warrior, having fought MS for years, exemplifying courage, perseverance and inspiration since his diagnosis in the early 1970s.

Bill graduated from Central CT State University with a Marketing Degree. He went on to pursue his passion for golf as an instructor of women and children. Bill was as big a fan of Frank Sinatra as the New York Yankees. His positive attitude and ever-present interest in how others were doing, even during times of struggle, made him a truly unique man and role model.

He leaves a son, Brett H. Rubin of Atlanta, GA, daughter-in-law Laurie and grandson Zachary and a daughter, Lisa Rubin Levin of Woburn, MA and son-in-law Jonathan. Bill was previously married to Marilyn Golden Byer for 25 years and leaves behind loving sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law Debra and Gerry Barker, Adrienne and Alan Silver and Roxanne Fried, father-in-law Milton Golden, along with a host of loving cousins, nephews and nieces. A heartfelt thank you to his long-time loving caretakers Cindy Macrae and Gloria Congdon and to New Horizons Village, the amazing pet therapy teams and friends who came for visits over the years, Interim Nursing and Hospice and the Hebrew Health Care.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, November 21st at 11:00 am in the Chapel of the Weinstein Mortuary, 640 Farmington Avenue, Hartford, CT. Following the service, the family will be accepting visitors at the home of Donald and Robbin Golden at 52 Parsons Drive in West Hartford until 7:00 pm.
