He was born on October 24, 1950 in Crosbyton, Texas. John was the son of Matthews and Jeanne (Anderson) Gruben. He was self-employed as a ceramic tile contractor and took pride in his craft. He was a man of many talents. He built a beautiful home for his family, a workshop where he built furniture and if you knew him you would probably have a “wire man” on your car. John married JoAnn Karseno on December 30, 1977. He was a member of the 7th and Main Baptist Church.


John Gruben is survived by his wife JoAnn (Karseno) Gruben; daughter Lisa Seigler and husband Adam; brother, Matthews Gruben and wife Kathleen. He is preceded in death by his parents.
