Aubrey Gateley was born to Norman C. and Katie Irene (Dacus) Gateley on March 16, 1913, at their home on Dutch Creek, west of Danville. He was the third of six children; the others being Isis, Geneva, Maurice, Joe Hayden and George. George died as an infant. His dad was a farmer and a seasonal highway foreman and road builder. The kids all grew up working hard on the farm and life could be pretty rough at times.
Aubrey played football and basketball in school, and remembers having to visit the principal's office once with tobacco in his mouth. He left school early to work in the oil fields in Oklahoma but returned to graduate from Danville High School in 1936. Some of his work included helping build the road up Mount Magazine. He almost met Dorothy in Ard when he and his uncle were there looking for a cousin of his. They drove by her house and she waved. When they drove back by she waved again. Aubrey thought she was really friendly and stopped the car, but she ran away. He wouldn't see her again until after she moved to Louisiana. He was down there visiting family and finally met her. When other young men visited her, her dad ran them off because they interfered with her work in the fields. When Aubrey visited, he worked beside her in the field. Her dad liked him right off. Aubrey and Dorothy were married on Dec. 25 at the City Hall in Talullah, La., in 1936. They honeymooned across the river in Vicksburg, Miss., then made their home back in Danville with his parents.
Soon afterward they moved to Oklahoma City for Aubrey to work in the oil fields. Joe was born there in 1937. They moved to Salem, III., looking for work and Aubrey became a tool dresser, a job he held until retirement. Dorothy and two other ladies started the church in Salem. Dorothy was already a Christian and was trying to persuade Aubrey. She enlisted the help of Elvis Huffard. And when Elvis was preaching in a gospel meeting in Sesser, III., in 1948, Aubrey had made up his mind. They drove in a blinding rain the 100 miles to Sesser to hear Elvis preach and have him baptize Aubrey into Christ. Since then Aubrey and Dorothy have been mainstays in the church wherever they have been. Aubrey taught Bible classes and served as an elder in Olney, III. He even memorized one song so that he would be prepared to lead it at any time. They moved to McClainsboro, III., where Aubrey was a pumper at Nipper's Corner for over 33 years.
He retired in 1972 and they moved to Houston, Texas, to work. The West Bedford Church of Christ had a daycare and school, and Aubrey worked as the maintenance man while Dorothy taught in the school. After that, he worked with Houston Heat Exchanger which made equipment for oil refineries. In 1983 they moved to Russellville to be near his mother in Danville and Dorothy's sister in Dardanelle. Aubrey passed away on June 3, 2010, at St. Mary's Regional Hospital in Russellville.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two sisters, Isis and Geneva; three brothers, Maurice, Joe Hayden and George; a son, Joe Gateley; and his wife, Dorothy Gateley.
He is survived by two grandsons and two granddaughters.

Jeff Gault is dead. This was the sad news that found its way over Dardanelle on Saturday evening, April 24, 1915, to the people among whom he had lived for over half a century. Each heart was saddened, for all knew that a good man had fallen, and that a loss irreparable to the church, county and state had been sustained. These recitals are few and simple, but they chronicle the passing of one who had bee true in every relation of life, and who will be missed by all who appreciated and revere noble manhood in one whose life had been a benediction and who without ostentations had lived the sincere life of the Christian and how had made smooth many rough places for others. In his nature grew the rich, red royal roses of love for his fellow man, and which were intertwined with the beautiful white flowers of charity. He was a man of decided convictions that were based upon rugged immovable innate sense of merciful justice. It seemed to be one of the manifold objects of his creation to gather arms full of sunshine and scatter them broadcast into the lives of others. He rejoiced in the success and pleasures of his fellow-men and mourned with them in their sorrows.
Of pioneer stock, the family has stood high in the annals of the county history since first founders of the Arkansas branch. Judge Joseph D. Gault came from the old Palmetto State some three-quarters of a century ago. There he married and at Bluffton, in 1855, Jeff Gault was born, born in that tragic epoch when a bloody vintage was trampled from the grapes of wrath; when the wild fowl marveled that the waters were stained with a crimson that was not of the rising nor the setting sun; when the deer crouched in the covert and the song bird hushed his woodland aria before the roll and the rattle of the invading armies; and the forest flowers blent their fragrance with the acid stench of battle. It may be that the horrors of the period wrought upon his heart so that he could not in later life do violence to one of Gods living creatures. But however that may be, he had the holy trinity of virtues, faith, hope and charity. They formed his daily ritual, his code and constitution.
Of those who mourn him through the love of relationship are his sisters, Miss Jane Gault of Dardanelle, Mrs. Sallie Farr of Uvalde, Texas; his brother, Bose Gault of Danville, Lawson, Boles Johnston, Gault. Of those who mourn him through the love of friendship are all who knew his utter manhood, his high courage and his stainless honor. Among them the Post-Dispatch offers its condolences to the stricken family. As all must sometime do, he has fulfilled Natures final decree in equity; he has consummated the last immutable decree of Natures court; but he went to his reward in the consciousness of a life well lived, and trust preserved inviolate to his God, his country, his family and himself.
His sun has set, but in the years yet unborn like shadows stretching toward the East his influence for good moves on and on. Of him we will have a wealth of beautiful memories. Peace to his ashes. (WWW.YellCountyObits.org, Published in Post-Dispatch, Dardanelle, Arkansas: 4-29-1915)
