We are deeply saddened at the loss of our friend, attorney and community activist Lawrence M. Reuben. Larry was a giant in philanthropy and a transformational figure for all the organizations he touched. He didn't just give money; he truly cared about the impact of his investments and honoring the legacy of his parents, Albert and Sara Reuben.
Beyond his philanthropy, he remained passionate and involved in the work of our organizations. He was the first one to send an email or make a congratulatory phone call when there was news of a success, and he spared no criticism of something with which he disagreed.
He was someone we could count on, to show up at events, to offer ideas and assistance, to heap on the praise when it was deserved, and to continue to fertilize the seeds he had planted in organizations whose work makes life better for all people in Indiana.
