Stephen Blaisdell Aubrey, 59, of North Falmouth, an oceanographic consultant and founder of Rogue Wave Field Services, died on July 17 after a brief battle with cancer.
He was married to Jan Aubrey for 31 years.
Born at Fort Ord in Monterey, California, Mr. Aubrey was the son of Donald and Lucille Aubrey of Santa Barbara, California. His father was an engineer with the US Army, and he was raised in France, Germany, and various posts in the United States. His nomadic childhood led to his love of travel.
After graduating from high school in Santa Barbara, California, he joined the US Army and later settled in Washington.
He and his family moved to Falmouth in 1985, where he joined his brother at Aubrey Consulting, Inc. He later started his consulting company, Rogue Wave Field Services.
In September 2012 he was appointed a member of Falmouth’s Coastal Pond Management Committee.
Mr. Aubrey traveled extensively for work and adventure, and he eventually visited all of the world’s continents. He was especially enthralled by Antarctica, while he and his family also traveled to France, Montserrat, St. Martin, and Nova Scotia.
Along with his love of travel, Mr. Aubrey will be remembered for his sense of humor.
In addition to his wife and parents, he leaves his children, Montana Chambers of Pembroke, Chance Aubrey of Lafayette, Indiana, Jill Ross of San Diego, California, and Nick Aubrey of Temecula, California. He also leaves his brothers, Dennis Aubrey and David Aubrey, both of Falmouth, and John Aubrey of Boston; and his sister, Ann Hanson of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
A private memorial service will be held at sea on Wednesday, July 23, where his ashes will be released into the ocean.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Visiting Nurse Association of Cape Cod, Hospice and Palliative Care, 67 Ter Heun Dr., Falmouth, MA 02540.
