Dr. Aubrey was my orthodontist back
in the 70's. He was a very kind man.
I especially remember enjoying the posters he hung on the ceiling.
My prayers and deepest sympathy are with the family.

Rick was one of the first orthodontists I ever met. What a role model! When I was in my first year of dental school, I was home one weekend and one of his patients asked me to adjust their bent retainer. Acting as if I knew how, I did my best. Rick looked me up at school a few weeks later, His patient told him what I did. I thought I was in trouble, but instead he told me I did a good job. My sympathy goes out to all his family.

Dear family of Dr. Aubrey,

He was our 3 children's orthodontist in the 70's and 80's, and our whole family liked him so much. He had such a great personality. Our children are all in their 40's now and still have very straight teeth. Our best to each of you, and we share in your loss. God bless you. Pat Hickman
