EASTON ---Aubrey W. "Brud" Wry passed away on July 3, 2021 at the age of 84. He was a lifelong resident of Easton, MA.
Aubrey is survived by his former wife Nancy and their four children - Keith and his wife Nancy (Belfast, ME), Steve and his wife Beth (Norton), Rhonda and her husband Jay Briggs (Sandwich), and Karen and her husband Joe Curran (Pembroke). His 13 beloved grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren affectionately called him "Bumpa."

He is also survived by his sister Ann Utera and numerous nieces and nephews, to whom was "Uncle Brud." He was preceded in death by his parents Aubrey and Mildred Wry, and siblings Robert Wry, Jean White, Tom Wry, Connie McNeil, and Betty Pedro.

A U.S. Navy veteran, he went on to work in tree services at Maltby & Co. and later, rigging and heavy hauling at Hallamore Corp. He was a fearless man, known for his work ethic and willingness to tackle things that would give others pause. Sometimes called "Tarzan" for his natural ability and ease in climbing, he climbed his last tree at age 78. He only got away with that because no one was looking.

He loved all things of nature and mechanics, and took great pride in learning and working with his hands. He built his own home where he loved to roam the woods and propagate plants. Over the years, he turned 6 rhododendrons into hundreds. His great love for his family, including the family dogs, is unending. Aubrey's big bear hugs were legendary, and frequently dispensed with wisdom and loving sentiments. He is forever in our hearts.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours on Saturday, July 10, 2021 from 1-4 p.m. at Kane Funeral Home & Cremation Services www.kanefuneralhome.com, 605 Washington Street (Rte. 138) Easton followed by a funeral service at 4:00 p.m. at the same location. A private burial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a blood donation www.redcrossblood.org or a donation to a charity of your choice in Aubrey's memory.
