The kindness that Aubrey and Hazel showed me during my two years in Caronport High School were wonderful examples of Christian love. I cherish the memory of Aubreys quiet encouragement.

There are so many fond & loving memories of the Mutch Family too many to share. There was wonderful sweet fellowship, generous hospitality, & fun during our visits with you with our family.
Years of me spending time with you during my summer visits each year & my school years attending CHS & BBC. I was at your home often.
We are sad for you that Aubrey is gone, but glad for his reward. We are continually remembering you in prayer as we bring your grief to the Throne of Grace & ask for your comfort during this time. Distance at this time with Covid keeps us a part but we will do our best to support you during this difficult time perhaps with a visit at a later date, or a phone call when things have subsided. We love you all.
With all our love, Paul, Cheryl, Ori, Pierrey, Pierce & Dominique

As a seminary student at Briercrest Seminary, I spent quite a number of weeks, renting a room from Aubrey and Hazel. I have nothing but good things to say of Aubrey, as he helped me in many ways spiritually. I know that he has already received his reward for his faithful service to our God and King. "Well done, thou good and faithful servant."

I grew up with Aubrey at Caronport. I was often in the Mutch home and he was a great big brother to me, taking me hunting and showing interest in my love for aquariums. Later, when I attended Briercrest I sat by him in two classes. We had great friendship and fellowship in Christ. See you soon brother!! You are reunited with your papa, mom Mutch and your dear brother Paul!!!

I remember Aubrey as faithful in ministry, service, hospitality and prayer, and as part of a partnership that welcomed me into their home for many a savoury meal and good fellowship. He is now where we all long to be! Hazel and Stephie, hugs and prayers to you both in this time of change and adjustment.

We watched Aubrey's funeral today in our living room and his wonderful tomato plants as our backdrop....he had an amazing green thumb! What a wonderful service it was. Aubrey had a passion for biblical truth and a love for His Lord and Saviour. Just knew him for a short time but will be very much missed. Praying for you Hazel & Stephanie and family. 2 Cor: 1:3
Love, Kim & Linda Chadsey

It was a special joy to know Aubrey and Hazel. He leaves a great legacy of faithfulness and kindness. Of all my good memories, the one that stands out most was about a week before our daughter-in-law passed away. No one really knew what to say to her except Aubrey. He came over and bent down in front of her and spoke gently of how she would soon be seeing Jesus.
Our sincere condolences to Hazel and family. He has left a legacy of faithful memories that should encourage each of us to 'press on' for the glory of God.

We were saddened to read the news of Aubrey's passing. We know he is home with his Savior but we ache for Hazel and the family. We always respected Aubrey for his humble and sincere spiritual stature and were always made more aware of God's workings when we talked to him. He had a habit of walking around the campus and praying for it and the people in it. He really loved to share his faith and we know he came alongside many students as he shared. God was always in his speech and we were always blessed to see his face light up as he spoke about his God in his unique and gentle way. We are so sad for Hazel, Stephanie, Cathy and Jonnie and the inlaws and grandchildren who will miss him incredibly. Our condolences and sympathies to you all.
Love, Collette and Nigel Lacey

We were so sad to hear that Aubrey has finished his earthly sojourn, and will always remember him as special co-laborers in ministry with Africa Inland Mission. Before we left Kenya we had a memorable visit with them in Zaire, then we also cherished his frequent visits to our Toronto AIM office where we both worked, and he often stayed with us. He always had a heart for people and missions, so we had many a good talk together. His wife and family were the love of his life and we always enjoyed their warm hospitality whenever we passed through Briercrest, SK . Our prayers are with you and your family, Hazel, and know that your comfort and hope rests in the assurance that we shall meet again. May our loving Shepherd, Jesus continue to lead you beside still waters and restore your soul.
With you in thought & prayer.........Royal & Joyce
