On Friday, December 11, 2020, Ruben Andres Martino, the loving husband and father of three children and two grandchildren, passed away at age 64.

Ruben was born on November 10, 1956 in Bronx, NY to Ruben Martino and Laura Montalvo. He was raised in the Bronx and attended Bronx High School of Science, graduating in 1974. He then attended Yale University with the class of 1978 and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, class of 1981. Ruben began his career as a staff attorney for Bronx Legal Services. He then worked his way to becoming the senior supervising attorney. Ruben was then appointed to the Housing Court in 1994 and later appointed to the Family Court by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He passionately worked and practiced law for 38 years.

On July 2, 1983 Ruben married the love of his life Joyce Cortez. They raised three children, Ruben Anthony, Eric, and Yesenia. He was a family man who cared deeply about helping others above himself. When he wasn’t working, he was helping his kids with homework, driving them to piano practice, or picking them up from a friends house. He would keep in touch with his friends and was gifted at maintaining healthy relationships. He would visit his uncle William regularly on the weekends to provide him with food, fix his telephone, and spend quality time together. He was very kind, generous, and humble.

Ruben was also incredibly passionate about playing basketball, painting, salsa dancing and reading. He was a talented and intelligent man. He and his wife took salsa dancing classes together and would dance at home anytime salsa music appeared on the radio. And every Friday after work, he would play his favorite sport, basketball, with coworkers. He always cherished spending time with people around him. He would paint with his children and his home is filled with paintings made throughout the years. Ruben was a smart and loving family-man. He is a man who always tried his best.

Ruben was preceded in death by his father Ruben Martino and mother Laura Montalvo. He is survived by his wife Joyce, his three children, his brothers Ronnie and Richie, his grandchildren Nilah and Naliyah, and many cousins.

He is loved by many and will be deeply missed.
