A memorial service for Dr. Randall Tucker Ruble, longtime minister and former president of Erskine College, will be held this Sunday, September 12, 2021, at 3:00 PM at Due West ARP Church. Following the service, the family will greet friends on the mall of Erskine Campus. The service will also be live-streamed at this site: www.facebook.com/duewest.arp.
Dr. Ruble died earlier this year. Burial was private because of the pandemic. Dr. Ruble taught at Erskine for 45 years, first as a professor of Old Testament and Hebrew, later as Dean of the Seminary, and finally, as president from 2006-2010. He was ordained in 1961, and pastored Abbeville and Mount Carmel ARP churches from 1967 to 2010, with a brief three-year break to serve as chaplain at Erskine College. He preached across the ARP denomination during his career and served as moderator of the ARP Synod, and chair of the Presbyterian Council on Chaplains and Military Personnel.
