Virginia Beach ~ Aubrey Edward New, 93, of Lynchburg, Virginia died Saturday, April 17, 2021.
Aubrey, known to many as “Ace”, retired after 34 years of working for the City of Lynchburg. He was born in Halifax County, Virginia on April 11, 1928 to Allie and Robert New. Aubrey graduated from E.C. Glass High School in 1946. Aubrey served in the Army during the Korean War. He was a lifetime member of College Hill Baptist Church where he served as a Deacon and the photographer for many weddings and church events. You could always spot Ace with his camera around his neck capturing all of life’s special moments. He loved his cars and was always on the hunt to purchase his next one! Aubrey loved softball and bowling which he kept doing well into his late 80’s. He loved his Washington football team as well as watching the Atlanta Braves.
He was predeceased by his wife Nancy Mann New. He is survived by 2 sons, Lee New of Lynchburg and Michael New (Kirstin) of Virginia Beach. He loved more than anything being with his 3 grandchildren, Maggie, Olivia and Cole New.
