Former UDP Minister, Ruben Campos, Laid to Rest

An official funeral service was held this afternoon for former U.D.P. minister Ruben Campos, who was a previous area representative for the Orange Walk North and South constituencies. Campos died last Friday at the age of seventy, having lost his battle with prostate cancer. As a former government minister, Campos was given full military honors, consistent with an official funeral service. Here are highlights of the event that ended around five-thirty this evening in Orange Walk.

“Whether you knew Ruben, the minister, the honourable representative from Orange Walk, or you knew Ruben the person who valued the public office who worked for the Ministry of Rural Development, you knew a man who dedicated his life to public office.”

“None of us was created to live forever. All of us have to return to our maker. The purpose is what we do with the time that we are here on this Earth, and Minister Campos fulfilled his purpose on the highest level because I am sure there is no greater purpose than serving other human beings.”
