Aubrey Baty, 84, was called home on March 22.
Born May 3, 1929, in Enid, Okla., Aubrey lived in Medford until moving to Thayer, Kan., where he attended school until his senior year. He graduated from Marysville High School in California and joined the U.S. Air Force immediately afterward, serving four years. Aubrey worked for Bridgestone/Firestone until his retirement at 58. He filled his leisure time enjoying his cattle ranch, golfing, shooting pool, having coffee with longtime friends, spending time with family, vacationing and filling the leftover time just riding around the countryside seeing what had changed since his last drive.
Preceded in death by his mother, Opal Brown and step-father Ralph, his father Eugene Baty and step-mother Mildred, sister Najean Baty, and his son-in-law Pete Cox, he is deeply missed by his wife Elaine Sutherland Baty of 43 years; his daughters, Donna B Cox, Pam Hubbard (Howard) and Stacey Vascellaro (Adam); his sons, Rodney Baty (Jamie) and Scott Baty; eight granddaughters, six with their spouses; four grandsons; 14 great-granddaughters and seven great-grandsons.
Services will be 2 p.m. Thursday, March 27 at Western Oaks Christian Church in Bethany. Online condolences may be made to www.mcneilsmustangfs.com.
