Born June 1, 1928 in Beech Hill, Lunenburg County, he was a son of the late Fred and Hilda (Hatt) Veinotte. He was a carpenter by trade, building many homes from the ground up. Reuben and his wife Florence spent many happy hours, always together, camping in Keji, hunting, canoeing, and attending music festivals. Their marriage was truly one of the hearts.

Reuben is survived by his wife Florence (Hatt Dorey); daughter Holly (Graham) Wile, grandson Lorin Wile; son Arnold (Virginia); nephew Allen (Darlene),who he cared for as a son, and family (Christian, Robin, and Gregory).
