On June 13, 1959, Ruben and Dolly Cruz were married in San Fernando at La Trinidad Church. They have had many wonderful experiences, traveling (mainly cruises), too many to count. The couple recently boarded a ship for a short four-day cruise to celebrate their 60 years together.
While on the ship the two decided to take a portrait to commemorate this special occasion.
Together Ruben and Dolly have two daughters, Elizabeth (Mike) Perrette, of Huntington Beach, and Katrina (Joe) Neric of Lakewood. Their third child, Rick, passed away in 2016. They have four grandchildren Hayley, Hannah and Joshua Cruz of Riverside and Sabrina Neric of Lakewood.
Ruben worked and retired from La-Z-Boy Manufacturing in Redlands. Dolly worked for many years as a secretary for Yucaipa First Baptist Church, now known as Grace Point Fellowship Church, where they attended faithfully and have many friends.
The couple is looking forward to many more trips. In September they will visit the biblical replica of Noah’s Ark and in November they will head to Illinois to help celebrate a sister’s (Alicia and Jack) 50th wedding anniversary and then next spring they will take a Viking River Cruise to Europe.
