Obituary for Robert S. Rubner

Robert S. Rubner, 64, of Tolland, formerly of Enfield, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. Born in Springfield, MA on December 25, 1954, he was the son of the late Robert and Sally Ann (Mortberg) Rubner and grew up in Enfield, graduating from Enfield High School in 1973. Bob worked for Pratt & Whitney for over 30 years, retiring in 2010. He was a car enthusiast and has owned many classic cars over the years including Corvettes and a Mustang. Bob loved NASCAR; you didn’t want to bother Bob on raceday. Bob loved a good Prime Rib and wouldn’t hesitate to tackle the biggest lobster in the tank. Bob was a devoted son, loving brother and uncle, and caring friend to so many who will miss him dearly. He will be lovingly remembered by his 3 siblings and their spouses, Craig Rubner and his wife Dawn of Dresden, ME, Sharon Torrey of Enfield, Scott Rubner and his wife Betty of Enfield; 6 nieces, 3 nephews, and 10 great nieces and nephews who loved him and had great fun with him and his cat Nightmare who kept things interesting for Bob. We would like to thank Liz and Companions and homemakers who made Bob’s life and ours so much more comfortable. His family and friends will celebrate his life on Wednesday, October 9 from 4-7 PM at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield, with a Memorial Service at 7 PM. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to American Cancer Society. For online condolences, please visit

I found out about the news on the radio coming home from work and had a hard time believing what I had heard. I am still trying to process it all because Bob was a very important part of my life for many years.
We were school mates! Room mates! Worked together and eventually brothers in law. I have so many great and funny memories it would take me a day to recite them all. All I can say is thank you Bob for the heads of friendship and memories that I will hold dear until my time comes.
I pray that this is a wakeup call to us all that no man is promised tomorrow and we should prepare ourselves now. Thanks Bob for the reminder and the richness you added to my life. Prayers for all of the family and friends who will miss him as I will!

I knew Rob through high school. We were in an auto repair class. He was a really sweet person, quiet, and really very smart about cars. Although we were only in a couple of classes, he will always be remembered as quiet guy with a great smile.

To the Rubner Family,
We are stunned to learn of Bob's death. Norm and I have so many great memories of Bob. He and Norm would talk cars constantly while giving me hugs and smiles. He was always laughing and even in his suffering would make light of his situation. We will miss his smile and friendship.
