The Death of Our Beloved Brother, Russ Aubry

It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our beloved brother, Russ Aubry passed into eternity this morning at 2am, December 28, 2022.  Our beloved father, grandfather, husband, veteran, friend, and a man of deep faith loved his wife and family and served our country and our church in his loving grace. Russ loved life and has fought a good fight of love and faith in this world, finished his race and is home with his Creator God and Savior Jesus and with his beloved family in the eternal home.  May Russ rest in peace. 

Let us give God thanks for Russ’ life and witness and hold his family, especially Annette, close in our hearts and prayers.  In our living and in our dying, we belong to God! (Romans 14:8)

 Memorial Service arrangements to be announced.
