Ruben Leon Perez was born June 2, 1942 in Panindicuaro Michoacan. He was very proud of that. His parents were Cecilia and Manuel. He only went to the 4th grade due to having to get to work to make ends meet, always helping his family.

Ruben came to Santa Ana California in 1968. In 1975 he had a baby boy named Adrian Hernandez Perez. In 1982 he met Rosemary Zaccagnino and they married in 1985 in Las Vegas. He became a widower in 1990. Ruben then moved to the City of Orange and bought a house on August 6th 1990. He then met Juana Avalos also they had a life together for over 30 years. Juana was his Amapola. He retired from Disneyland at the age of 72 years old. He put in over 20 years there.

If you know Ruben you know he loved to dance. He was funny, always happy and was the life of the party. He was genuine, loyal, and really just an all around great guy. He will truly be missed by all.
