Boris Henry Ruebner, M.D.

Screen Shot 2014-06-26 at 4.09.01 PM

Aug. 30, 1923 – June 11, 2014
Boris was born Aug. 30, 1923, in Düsseldorf, Germany, and passed away peacefully on June 11, 2014, in Davis.

Throughout his 90 years, Boris was committed to living life to its fullest. He thrived on travel, theater, reading, swimming and playing bridge, and loved spending time with his devoted family. Boris was as passionate about his work as he was about life.

A founding faculty member of the UC Davis School of Medicine and internationally respected gastrointestinal pathologist, he loved the practice of medicine — a love that continued well after his official “retirement” in 1994. Boris especially valued his role as a teacher, and was particularly popular among his students.

Before being recruited to Davis in 1968, Boris practiced pathology at Hammersmith Hospital in London, Dalhousie University in Halifax and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. As a teenager, Boris left Germany during the World War II and attended boarding school at Winchester College in England, followed by medical school at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.

During his last two years with us, Boris benefited from the generous help and company of many — including friends, doctors, nurses and more. To every one of those people — thank you, we are so very grateful.

Boris is survived by his wife, Sue, daughter, Sally, son, Anthony (Nina), and five grandchildren — Brittany, Dakotah (Joe), Tanner, Griffin and Cole. His lively spirit, humility, enthusiasm and the twinkle in his eye will remain with us always.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the UCD School of Medicine’s Ruebner Outstanding Fellow Teaching Award fund in memory of Boris Ruebner. Checks can be made payable to UC Regents and sent to Health Sciences Development, 4900 Broadway, Suite 1150, Sacramento, CA 95820.
