David Rueb - ASAPA President 1983
I have to take a minute today and think about a good friend and PA colleague who passed away yesterday from chronic disease. No services are planned. Ashes to be scattered in the Pacific Ocean. A past-President of the Arizona State Association of PAs! An exceptional orthopedic PA. We worked together in an HMO in the early 1980s and at a rural urgent care in the '90s. We worked arm in arm with ASAPA on professional and legislative issues. He was always wonderful to be around. He loved to play pool. In fact, he paid his way through PA school (Baylor) playing pool. He used to kill me at billiards. Had a nice pool table in his house. We spent many a day together at PA conferences, state and national, and he loved the profession. RIP, my friend! I will miss our all-night discussions about gold futures!
