An auto shop owner shot to death outside his business was a kind father of three who “was known to forgive anybody,” his family recalled.

Youbens Joseph, 37, of Middletown, died after he was shot three times outside Youbs Auto Sales in West Nyack on Saturday during an apparent argument with a customer, police said.

In an interview with NBC 4 New York, Youbens widow Keren Joseph said his family and friends were “all mourning” the welcoming man.

“We miss him very much,” she said.

On Wednesday, the Clarkstown Police Department said it had arrested Eric Hue Ross Jr., 24, of Wilmington, Delaware in connection with the shooting.

Ross was taken into custody at a relatives home in Pennsylvania after “an exhaustive five-day investigation,” the department said. Police say he is being held at a detention center in Pennsylvania and is awaiting extradition to New York.

Since Youbens death, family and friends have set up a memorial outside the auto shop. His son told News 4 he feels “sad” and “empty” after his fathers death.

“I miss seeing my father,” he said. “Its been miserable.”
