Charles Leonard Reuby – happy birthday!

July 25th is my late father-in-law’s birthday. He was born in Bermondsey, London in 1905, and married Lilian May Golesworthy in 1935.

He died at only 69, so I never met him, but I wish I had. His photos all show him smiling. He served in the Royal navy from 1923 to 1929, and then again in WW2 on the Arctic Convoys.

In the late 1950’s he and Lilian moved to California where Charles worked as a civil engineering estimator on the highways. Later he returned to the UK, and died in Ringwood, Hampshire in 1974.
