He attended Lynbrook, Leland and B-CC. Reuben Rudd was a carpenter and businessman. He had a carpenter business in Rockville making and installing salad bars for Jerry's Subs and Pizza shops. Reuben's entrepreneurial spirit included three businesses in Rockville. The first of which was Kitchen Showcase, a retailer of custom-made cabinetry. His longest running and most successful business was Rudd's Woodshop, whose commercial clients included Jerry's Subs, Hahn Shoes and the Sir Walter Raleigh restaurant chain. He ran the woodshop for more than 20 years until the late 1980s. He then opened and managed Brew and Wine Masters, which sold raw ingredients to make beer and wine. Reuben was born in Washington and raised in Bethesda. He served in the D.C. National Guard as a military police officer.
