In 1951 he moved to Corner Brook where he met & married Veneita White on June 22, 1954 and together they raised 8 beautiful children. Mabrey adored his family and was happiest when the room was full and there was lots of laughter. He often referred to his sons and daughters as "his children" and the grandchildren as "Poppy's boy or girl".
Mabrey was well known as a community volunteer, in addition to his working career, setting a wonderful example for his family. The Town Council, Lions Club, Fire Department, Springdale Community Development Cooperative, District School Board, and various church groups were the beneficaries of his time and his wisdom. Next to his family, the church and community were very special.

The funeral service was conducted by Majors Robert and Cassie Kean with interment following at the Salvation Army Cemetery, Springdale. Pallbearers were his six sons Garry, John, Dean, Merrick, Danny & Ian. They were led by two of “Poppy's Boys” Master Seaman Richard Winsor and Leading Seaman Aaron Pittman of the Canadian Navy. Honorary pallbearer was Gerald Pelley, a good friend. Members of the Men's Ministries, Gideon's and Fire Department formed an honour guard to show their respect for this wonderful man.
