It is with deep sadness that I announce that the founder and former president of the TVR Car Club North America, Marq J. Ruben, passed away this morning, following a battle with lung cancer.
Marq had many close ties over the years with the TVRCC in England and founded the North American club in 1981, serving as its president for 20 years before retiring from the post in 2001 when current president Marshall Moore stepped into the position. Marq also served as the North American liaison for the UK club for most of those years and frequently visited 'across the pond' and had many TVR friends over there.
Marq Ruben will be missed.
Marshall Moore President TVRCCNA
