It is with great sadness and heartbreak to announce Ruben Emmanuel Dos Santos, 31 born on January 20, 1989 in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal- Resident of Union Township has regretfully passed away in Hillside, NJ on March 2, 2020. Ruben was a fun kid growing up. He loved soccer, food, family and friends. A typical "Chop" as one would say. He loved to laugh, growing up it was hard not to laugh at him and with him. He loved the discovery channel and always knew the strangest facts about people, places, and things from all around the world, especially animals. From being an avid fan of WWF and showing his two sisters all the wrestling moves he turned into cars and sports. He was handsome and very charming. His sweet tooth was almost as big as his heart. Although he was the middle child he always protected his sisters as if he was the oldest. He leaves behind a very large family not only in the Unites States but in Portugal. During this difficult time we pray that he is resting in peace. Son of Manuel & Paula Dos Santos. Brother of Nanci Vekios and Michelle Nehme. Grandson of Maria Julieta Prudencio and Manuel Aguiar.
