the honored REUVEN may his memory be a blessing

son of the honored Yonah Fischman, may he rest in peace

He went to his world [= died] with a good name [= reputation] and he passed away

7 [?] Tamuz 5654 [?]

May his soul be bound up in the bond of life.

=======================================================
The date of death is a bit challenging. The year is most likely 5654, but might also be 5655 or 5658. The exact date in the month is also impossible to be sure of. It looks to me like a 7, but this might be incorrect.

The 7th of Tamuz, 5654, began at sunset on July 10th, 1894, and ended at sunset on the 11th.
3/24/2021 11:03 PM The date is 7 Tammuz 5655 (June 29 1895)
