In Memoriam: Donald L. Rubin, Blue Generation
Donald L. Rubin, founder of Blue Generation, has passed away. Below is a release issued by the company:
Donald L. Rubin
We are profoundly saddened to announce the passing of our founder Donald L. Rubin. Don founded M. Rubin & Sons together with his father Milton in 1944, as manufacturers of military uniforms and outerwear. They were later joined by brothers Bob and Phil, and later Phil's son Eric.
Don presided over the company as president for more than 60 years, and enjoyed his retirement until the age of 91. There was a family affection and harmony among us that allowed us to work together for more than six decades. Throughout the 71-year history, the company produced for the largest retailers and established many successful divisions, including Antler Uniform, El Toro Bravo, Sergio Valente Shirts and Outerwear, Double Exposure Casualwear and, most recently, Blue Generation.
His legacy will continue to live in our hearts forever.
Phil & Eric Rubin
