April 19, 1932 – February 10, 2014
Carroll “Bob” Aubens, Jr. 81
Yarmouth – Carroll “Bob” Aubens, Jr., 81, of Yarmouth died at Maine Medical Center in Portland on February 10, 2014. He was born in Norway, ME on April 19, 1932, one of eight children of Gertrude (Smith) and Carroll V. Aubens, Sr. and because he was the youngest of the boys he was known as “Brother”.
After graduation from NYA he enlisted in the US Air Force and was stationed in Japan, Germany and England where he met his future wife Doreen Raine. Bob retired after 21 years of service and he and Doreen made their home in Yarmouth. Bob was handy with tools so he kept himself busy with odd jobs and projects which would invariably involve a trip to the landfill and some time spent with the guys.
Bob was a member of the American Legion, VFW and the Masons where he helped with their “Bean Suppers”. He also enjoyed the time spent with friends at McDonald’s. He was always ready to help; be it with the Clam Festival or help anyone who would need a ride to get somewhere. He will be remembered as a quiet man with a good heart and who was a good listener. Bob also had a great love of dogs.
Bob is survived by his step-son, Paul Raine of England; his brother Ronald Aubens of Florida; his sister Lynda Jeter of Georgia and a large family of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife of 25 years, Doreen; brother Stanley Aubens; sister Idalyn Cummings; brother Kenneth Aubens, who died in WWII; sister Roberta Cosser and sister Lois Buck.
It was Bob’s wish that there be no services. Please visit www.lindquistfuneralhome.com to share condolences, memories and tributes with his family.
