Son of the late Lewis and Inna Rubin, he was valedictorian of his graduating class at Norton, MA High School. He graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) with a degree in Computer Science. He completed the Harvard Business School Owners and Presidents Executive Education Program.

Intellution was bought by Emerson Electric and is now owned by General Electric.

Mr. Rubin was actively involved with WPI over his entire life, ending his tenure as Chairman of the Board of Trustees the year he was diagnosed with ALS. He was also deeply devoted to Temple Beth Shalom, Needham where he served on the Board, ushered, and participated in Brotherhood activities.

Mr. Rubin is survived by his wife, Tracy, nee Garrett, and his three children: Gregory and his wife Jenny of Westport, CT, Matthew and his wife Stephanie of West Roxbury, and Jessica of Chicago, and his sister, Ellen Rubin. He is also survived by two grandchildren who will miss their Poppop. His goats will also miss him tremendously.
