Daniel was born on January 8, 1947, in Oak Park to parents Joseph and Bernice (nee Gable) Rubeck. He loved to spend time outdoors fishing and boating, and he was a skilled golfer.

He was a good-hearted man who especially loved dogs and was passionate about rescuing Brittany Spaniels. Daniel will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Daniel is survived by his beloved wife, Melanie Rubeck, Melanie’s daughters, Kimberly (Murphy) Carroll, and Jodi (John) Pellikan, his grandchildren, Harrison, Colin, Caera, Charlie, Riley, and McKenna, and his siblings, Donna Zielenski, and David (Patti) Rubeck.
