Mr. Aubrey Lee Mears, age 71 of McMinnville, Tennessee passed from this life peacefully August 9, 2020, at his home surrounded by family and friends. His passing marks the end of a long battle with cancer that he fought with love and grace.

Aubrey serviced our country in Vietnam and was a member of Gath Baptist Church.

Aubrey never met a stranger. He would light up a room talking about hunting or just with his jokes and humor. He and his wife of 23 years loved to travel as often as they could, and they would take you on that adventure too. He loved the outdoors, was an avid hunter, a loyal friend, a great teacher, a loving husband,and a great father and grandpa. He had a great love for sharing the Bible.
