As Rubin’s father approached retirement from his career in the Navy, his parents chose Washington to settle in (1979). Although he spent the bulk of his life living in King County, most of it was in the Bothell area. His small family has been living in Silver Firs for 10 years now.

Together we can shape our futures.
