Alvin Ruff

After an incredibly hard-fought and courageous battle with cancer we lost an amazing man on Thursday, April 5th. It was his birthday, but instead of looking forward to the years ahead, we held his hand and thanked him for the incredible years we shared with him. He passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loved ones. He was 44. He leaves behind his wife, parents, siblings, family, friends and, most heartbreaking, his kids. He loved his family with everything he had – and wanted desperately to make their lives easier. We want to help him finish what he started, and try to help take care of some of the financial hardships caused by cancer and loss of income. Hopefully, we can even try to create some financial security and stability for the future of his family. Any donation, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated. All are welcome to attend his memorial service, taking place on Saturday, April 14th from 1:00PM – 3:00PM at the Delaware Youth Center, 8 Creamery road, Callicoon, NY 12723. We encourage you to wear tie-dye, Mets, or Jets attire. We can’t thank you enough for your generosity.
Peace and Love always.
