Finis Ruben Pool

Finis Ruben Pool went to be with our Lord on Sunday, April 3, 2022 in Kaufman at Sunflower Care Center.

He joined the Army and served for two years during World War II, but returned home to help his mother on the farm and his younger brothers. After a few years he moved to Los Angeles, California and lived with an uncle, and worked in construction. He returned to Texas in 1966 working in construction until he joined the Teamsters Union and worked for Safeway Warehouses for 30 years, until he retired in 1985

Our family met Mr Pool when my dad became his roommate at Sunflower. We became friends quickly. He had such a sweet smile and was always appreciative of our visits and attention. He and dad enjoyed a few football games together but my dad began to dwindle quickly and poor Mr. Pool had to endure some difficult times with dad. They had to move dad eventually but we always made sure to see Mr Pool everytime we saw dad daily! Both my grown daughtes fell in love with Mr Pool and his contagious smile. I hope we we brought a little bit of joy to him in his last days. Rest in peace our friend! With love, Bobby, Cindy, Diana Pritchett, Gracie & Drake, Leah & Aaron Odom, Ian & Izzy
