This obituary says very little to the great man that this guy was to so many. In his younger years he made a great many mistakes. He was a drunk, anger easily, a gambler, horrible father and so much more. But after suffering through a war, loosing a wife to cancer, loosing a step son to drug related death, another son to chance military accident, almost loosing another to son drugs, and stuff suffering the loss of a failed marriage. All while dealing with the rightful anger of his kids. This man found grace. Found what it meant to have Godly love for his fellow man. This is a man who would give you the shirt off his back and meal in belly out of love. He never over conquered all of his demons but he learned to accept his life and he learned what Godly love is. In the end of his life he lost his ability to remember who people were and lost his ability to to be independent. But he never lost the love that was placed in him. He was truly one of the greatest men I knew.
Mike Wrubel... it is given this posting is years late; however, I just came upon it on the web. I am sorry of your loss, as I believe Mr. Wrubel was the namesake of the Michael Wrubel I knew... as a shipmate aboard the USS Duncan FFG-10. If you happen to be the son of my passed shipmate, and wish to chat (I live in Michigan), I would be happy to have you reach out to me via email. I can be contacted at email@example.com. God Bless. ~Troy
