Delfino Rubio

Aug. 16, 1929 — Jan. 17, 2014

Delfino E. Rubio passed away peacefully in his home on Jan. 17, 2014.

Delfino was born Aug. 16, 1929, in San Antonio, Texas. He was one of seven children born to Delfino E. Rubio Sr. and Isabel Rubio.

In 1951, Delfino was drafted into the United States Army to serve in the Korean War. After his service in the Army, Delfino married Maria Dolores Perez on July 4, 1953. They moved to California in the early 1950s and shortly after became permanent residents of Fairfield.

Delfino’s first job in Fairfield was managing the well-known Snowman drive-in. One year later, he got a job pushing a broom as a custodian for Armijo High School. Fino became so much more in his 30 years at Armijo.

Delfino was a kind, honest man, always willing to help out. Fino, aka Mr. Rubio, was well-liked and respected by students and faculty. He enjoyed coaching Little League, watching westerns, building model trains, playing cards and going to the casinos. His greatest passion, however, was being with family, especially the grandchildren.

He is survived by his children, Anthony, Joe, Virginia and Tami; seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

There is a public viewing from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014. Funeral with viewing starts at 11 a.m. with service to start at noon Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014, at Bryan-Braker Funeral Home, 1850 W. Texas St., Fairfield, Calif. 94533.

Arrangements under the care of Bryan-Braker, www.bryanbraker.com.

    I'm a 1982 graduate of Armijo. Fino befriended me as a student and, in the years following my graduation, was a beloved member of Jay Dahl's "extended basketball family." He was one of the kindest, most giving, and most loving persons that I have known in my life. I saw him a few years back and knew such joy to be remembered by such a wonderful person. My heartfelt sympathies to his family.

    Virginia, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He was a really nice man. My prayers are with you and the kids.
