We are devastated about the loss of our beloved son and brother, Joshua Rubin. He was a kind, caring and gentle young man. He was the type of person that people gravitated to because of his funny personality and truly caring nature. He loved talking to people and consistently made new friends. He had a big wonderful smile that could light up your day. Josh was deeply loved by his family and friends.
The community in Providence, RI where he grew up is grieving with us, as is his adopted family in the Brooklyn, NY community where he lived and worked. We are also deeply moved by the countless condolences we have received from people all over the country and the world who knew him and loved him. We can’t express enough gratitude for the overwhelming support and prayers we have received over the past 8 weeks. Our hearts are broken.
We ask that anyone who has information that can help police with Joshua’s murder investigation, please contact Detective Tallarico of the Lehigh County Homicide Task Force or Detective Gersbach from the South Whitehall PA Police Department at 610-437-5252. Thank you.
Please remember that you can make donations in Josh's name to two organizations, and you can find more information about that here.
