Ronald Leroy Autrey, 73 of Hanna, passed away on Thursday October 13, 2022. He was born on December 4, 1948 in Plymouth to the late Donald and Ruth (Davis) Autrey. He proudly served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. While considered a jack-of-all-trades, he made his career as a mechanic for many years. Ron was fond of cars and loved visiting with friends, having movie nights, and cookouts. He will be fondly remembered as being down-to-earth, an avid storyteller, and always willing to lend a helping hand to those around him.
Ron is survived by his siblings, Diane (Jim) Vaughn and Randy (Cathy) Autrey; niece, Jennifer Vaughn; nephews, James and Jacob Vaughn; and dear friends: Erin, Lin, Jerry, and Bueford. He is preceded in death by his brother, Daniel Autrey, and sister, Sherry Autrey.
The family and friends of Ron would like to thank VNA Hospice and Northwest Medical Group-Hermatology and Oncology for their outstanding care and support.
A private burial will take place at Hanna Cemetery in Hanna, IN. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
I am so very sorry for your loss. -Mary Spiess
My deepest sympathy for your loss. Ron was a friend and classmate at Aubbeenaubbee High School (class of 1966). Also, a fellow United States Air Force veteran. I was able to go visit him while he and Roger Severns were in the start of their Basic Training and I was in my last week of Basic Training. Fellow classmates were so delighted when he showed up in Leiters Ford for our class' 50th reunion get-together. Ron will be missed. -Dwayne Shaffer
Diane & Jim, We are so sorry for your loss. We have you and your entire family in our prayers. -Terry & Renee Scherer
Dianna, I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you. -Christine Hayes
