Hez Austin Aubey

Hez Austin Aubey, 87, of Beaumont, died Wednesday, May 8, 2019. He was born on April 27, 1932, to Etta Holt Aubey and Victor Dale Aubey, in Beaumont, Texas.

Hez graduated from St. Anthony High School in Beaumont and then enlisted in the United States Navy where he served as the Captain’s yeoman onboard a naval ship. After an honorable discharge from the Navy, he earned a BBA from Lamar University, an MBA in Economics from SMU, as well as a degree in banking. Hez’s career included working at the IRS followed by a position as a National Bank Examiner with the US government where he traveled extensively both domestically and internationally. He met and married Rexine in 1972 and started a family with her and her three young children. He then changed professions and transitioned into banking. After many years as a commercial loan officer with First City Bank Beaumont, he retired as President of the Gateway branch. Hez actively served on several community non-profit boards including the Salvation Army. After retirement, he began his second and most cherished career as an Assistant Professor at Lamar University where he taught finance and economics for 18 years. He then retired once again, and he and Rexine made many memories traveling the US and Europe. He lives on in our hearts.

    Judy, Arlene, Theresa and I looked upon Hez as an older brother years ago. We had so much fun with him and we were so happy that he found love with Rexie , although I think Arlene and Theresa were a little jealous. Mama and Daddy loved him dearly. I pray they are enjoying a good time in Heaven.. Prayers for Rexie, his brothers and the kids.
