Reverend Alan Charles Aubel (Wilmington Funeral & Cremation)

LELAND — Reverend Alan Charles Aubel, born on January 27, 1939, in Brooklyn, NY, peacefully passed away on May 22, 2024, in Winnabow, NC, surrounded by his loving family. He was 85 years old.

Alan’s passion in life was serving the church and community. He graduated from Massapequa High School and continued his education at Baptist Bible Seminary. Throughout his life, he held numerous positions within the church, including pastor, assistant pastor, deacon, and elder pastor. His dedication to faith and community was evident in every role he undertook.

Alan spent his professional years contributing to various institutions such as the Long Island Railroad, First Baptist Church of Lindenhurst, Huntington Christian School, Loudoun County Juvenile Group Home, Tara Reston Christian School, and Loudoun County Public Schools. He cherished his time educating and mentoring children, always striving to share his love for learning.

A devoted volunteer, Alan generously gave his time to The Lions Club and the American Legion. His passion extended beyond his work and service; he had a profound love for anything to do with cars, particularly antique models, and possessed a wealth of knowledge about them. Alan also loved music, especially the oldies, and played the piano for many years. His mornings were spent joyfully reading books and the newspaper with a big cup of coffee, and he dedicated time each day to studying his Bible, maintaining his unwavering commitment to his faith.

Alan’s greatest accomplishment was being a loving and dedicated husband and father. Known for his calming presence and kind soul, he was the heart of his family, always ready with a corny joke and a hearty laugh to brighten any situation. Though he will be deeply missed, his family takes comfort in knowing he is now home in God’s hands. Alan had peace in the knowledge that God would one day see him home.

Preceded in death by his parents, George and Clara Aubel, Alan is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Annette Aubel; his daughter, Dawn Timoney (John); his son, Mark Aubel (Casey); granddaughters, Courtney Cowden (Chris), Alexandra Timoney, and Aoife Timoney; great-grandson, Colsen Alan Cowden; sisters, Carol Lawson and Sandy Larson; and brother, David Aubel. The family will forever cherish his memory and the time they were fortunate enough to share with him.

A graveside service will be held at Oakdale Cemetery located at 520 N 15th Street, Wilmington, NC 28401, on May 28, 2024, beginning at 1 p.m. A celebration of life will be held in Virginia at a later date.

In honor of Alan’s memory, the family kindly requests that memorial donations be made to the American Legion Post 177.

While we say goodbye for now, we take solace in knowing it is not the end, but a “see you later.” We love you dearly, Alan, and look forward to the day we meet again.

Corinthians 15:54-55 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
