Jack Morris Rubin

February 12, 1940 — November 26, 2023


Jack Morris Rubin, a beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away peacefully on November 26, 2023, at the Richard M. Campbell Veteran's Nursing Home in Anderson, SC. He was 83 years old.

Born on February 12, 1940, in New York City, Jack was the son of the late Harold and Marguerite Dickriede Rubin. He grew up in a loving family and developed a strong sense of duty and patriotism from an early age.

Jack served his country with honor as a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. While serving in the Marine Corps Jack became pen pals with his friend's sister.  That pen pal relationship lasted over a year until they finally met.  They were married in less than a month.  After his service, he embarked on a successful career as the owner of a Refrigeration and HVAC Repair business in Boulder, Colorado. Later in life, Jack and his wife relocated to Clemson, South Carolina where they started Campus Copy Shop.

Family meant everything to Jack. He shared an incredible bond with his late wife of 60 years, Jill "Evajo" Rubin. They were inseparable partners who enjoyed exploring the world together. Their shared passion for travel led them to visit an astonishing 56 different countries. However, their most cherished adventures took them to South America, where they journeyed to the Amazon Rain Forest an impressive 26 times.

Aside from traveling and exploring new cultures, Jack had several cherished hobbies. He loved swimming, hunting, and indulging his need for speed by racing his Porsche. These activities brought him great joy and lent a zestful spirit to his life.

Jack leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion. He is survived by his children  Jill Helen Durbin and her husband Lonnie of Central; his son Rex Rubin and Dawn of Boiling Springs, SC and Roxanne Margaret Stengel of Houston, TX; grandchildren Casey Tyler Durbin (and wife Jaclyn), Aryn Durbin Skewes (and husband Justin), Clint Stengel (and wife Carissa), Haily Kahlden (and husband Miles), Mitch Rubin (and wife Kristina), and Madison Rubin (and wife Pearl); as well as seven great-grandchildren Joey Skewes, Wade Skewes, Jackson Durbin, Wyatt Durbin, Jack Rubin, Ries Rubin, and Gus Rubin.

In accordance with their wishes, the family will lay Jack and his late wife to rest at a later date in South America, a region that held a special place in their hearts.

Expressions of sympathy and condolences may be shared on the funeral home's website at The compassionate staff at Duckett-Robinson Funeral Home & Cremations is assisting the family during this difficult time.

Jack Morris Rubin will be remembered for his unwavering love for his family, his adventurous spirit, and his service to his country. His indomitable presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. May he rest in eternal peace.
