On the morning of May 10, 2020, we lost a great husband, father, brother, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend.
Aubrey Hamilton Liles, Jr. “Bubba” was born on April 29, 1929 to Aubrey and Mary Liles in Birmingham, AL. He graduated from Broadview Academy in Chicago, IL in 1948, where he learned to ice skate and enjoyed playing in the saxophone quartet. He then obtained a degree in accounting at Southern Missionary College (now known as Southern Adventist University) in 1952. It was there he met the love of his life, Barbara June Carden, and they were married on August 14, 1949. After serving in the U.S. Army, they moved to Atlanta, GA in 1954, where they raised three children, Sandy, Joni, and Aubrey, III (Chip).
Aubrey established Medical and Dental Management in Atlanta, GA, where he serviced the accounting needs of physicians and dentists in the southeast for over fifty years. He was very active in the Beverly Road Seventh-Day Adventist Church as an elder, treasurer, and a member of the choir, and assisted with the transition to Atlanta North Seventh-Day Adventist Church where he continued to be involved until they relocated to Chattanooga in 2010 to be closer to family.
Aubrey’s “hobbies” revolved around his family and friends. He loved getting his kids and their friends out on the lake for skiing and tubing. There were regular trips to Panama City Beach for playing in the surf and meals at Captain Anderson’s. Anyone who knew Aubrey knew he was a “car guy” from day one, starting with his 1940 Dodge affectionately known as Ginny Pooh followed by many others. He was a dapper dresser who loved dogs and babies, didn’t know a stranger, and brought life to any gathering.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Aubrey and Mary Liles; and his sister, Ann Liles Hoyt.
He is survived by his loving wife of 70 years, Barbara; his children, Sandy (Shane Tisdale), Joni Hamilton (Bob), and Chip (Laurie); and his sister, Jane Liles King, as well as six grandchildren; Georgia (Sean) Tunstill, Jacque (Heath) Bennett, Ashley (James) Fedusenko, Jordan Evans, Haley Hamilton, and Dillon Hamilton; five great-grandchildren, and beloved nieces and nephews.
There will be a private graveside service for immediate family, followed by a celebration of life to be determined at a later date.
