Aubrey B. Vaughan, Jr., 82, of Frostproof, Fla., passed away Monday, Oct. 7, 2013, at The Oaks at Avon Nursing Home in Avon Park.
He was born May 11, 1931, in Bolivar, Tenn., to Aubrey and Audrey Vaughan.
Mr. Vaughan retired from Tennessee Housing Development Agency where he served as Director of Mortgage Administration.

Aubrey came from humble beginnings in West Tennessee. He worked very hard to become a success in business and in life and succeeded.
Aubrey and his wife decided to move to Southern Pines in Frostproof in 1998 and loved every day of it. Aubrey and Dora were dedicated to each other for 58 years. When she passed away in June of this year, he did not believe he could live without her and grieved himself to death to be with her in heaven.
He is survived by a son, Roy Vaughan, and daughter-in-law, Sandra Vaughan, of Whitehouse, Tenn.
A memorial service will be held at a later date.
Dowden Funeral Home, Sebring, Fla., is handling the arrangements.
