Obituary for Rodney Lee Mabe Sr.

Rodney Lee Mabe, Sr., age 74, of Aurora, Missouri, went to be with the Lord at 3:08 p.m. on Sunday, August 18, 2019, at the Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri. He was born May 24, 1945, in Princeton, Indiana, the son of Homer and Mary (Richards) Mabe.

Rodney was a 1964 graduate of Princeton Community High School in Princeton, Indiana. He was a United States Air Force Veteran serving during the Vietnam Era and a retired welder from Tom Williams Machine in Aurora.

Mabe was such an Arborist and loved his trees! He had always said “I could solve all the world’s problems when I’m on my lawnmower.” He always felt that his greatest accomplishment was raising his beautiful and successful daughter, Jamie. Mabe and his wife hosted a motorcycle rally each year for ten years. Anyone that came to the rally had always felt like they were home and always returned.

On September 8, 2002, he married Debra Evans, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Rodney is survived by his wife of 16 years, Debra; one daughter, Jamie Huryta and her husband, Dale, of Ravenna, Nebraska; one son, Jimmy Mabe of Evansville, Indiana; four grandchildren, Kyanna Zysset, Landon Zysset and Jakob Huryta, all of Ravenna, Nebraska and Jennifer Mabe of Evansville, Indiana and one brother, Charles (Chip) Flack, Jr. of Redlands, California.

Rodney was preceded in death by his parents, Homer and Mary, two stepfathers, Charles Flack, Sr. and Albert Peterson and son, Rodney Mabe, Jr.

A funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at the Crafton-Cantrell Funeral Home in Aurora. Burial will follow at the Maple Park Cemetery in Aurora. Visitation will be held from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, in the funeral home chapel.
