    Good evening Gentlemen, I have been asked to post that Lt-Colonel Frank June Ruiz of the 14th Brooklyn and Union Volunteers Battalion died tonight as a result of asthma and heart related issues. More details will be posted shortly. Please respect the privacy of Colonel Frank Ruiz and his family at this time.

    With much respect,

    Frank Jr., not the senior (for those not as familiar with the family but familiar with the name). I'm in shock from this turn of events. He was just 31....

    I am in total shock. Over the past few years, I've worked closely with both Frank Sr. and Jr. Ruiz at a number of events and consider both personal friends. My heart goes out to Frank Sr. and the family, in this time of grief and loss.

    May God give them peace!

    Prayers and condolences to Frank Sr. and the Family. I was fortunate to meet and 'work' with both Ruiz's at Maryland My Maryland. Frankie will be sorely missed.

    Today, while sorting more of my father's things, I came upon a well thumbed book with cards and letters carefully glued inside. It reminds me that the faintest ink in the weakest hand lasts far longer than the most glowing electron on the screen.

    We may send condolences and remembrances to the family at the address below. His fiance, Ilana Bravo and young son Jack also live with his parents.
