Aaron was born on May 8, 1993. His maternal grandfather affectionately gave him the nickname, Eroc,
and Aaron loved to reminisce about being called this endearing name. This brought him such joy and
laughter to reminisce. As a child, his parents loved to watch him play football and they started him
young in the football parks and recreation program. Aaron’s mom, Melissa, has such fond memories
watching her little boy, Aaron, play his heart out on the football field and cheering him on as a proud
parent. Aaron received numerous awards as the MVP Most Valuable Player. Aaron absolutely loved the
horse farm across the street, where he started working at 9 years old caring for the horses. He was so
happy when he came home with a pocket full of money, learning the value of hard work at a young age.
He graduated from Louisa County High School in 2012 after participating in a dual program with
Piedmont College, where he earned college credits in Culinary Studies. In his adult life, Aaron was a
dedicated worker throughout his career and worked at Tyson, Dominion Pallet and most recently UPS.
Aaron also worked in the construction field for many years and held a license for construction work
along with CPR certification.
Aaron was the classic avid Cowboys fan. He enjoyed music in general, including TuPac and Rod Wave.
But his passion was spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed quality time with his children,
brothers and nieces, specifically the special get togethers with Andy. Andy’s family were near and dear
to his heart. Aaron also loved his video games as well as traveling and exploring new and different places with the family. We will all remember Aaron cracking his jokes.
Aaron’s loss leave a hole in the fabric of this family. Aaron was such a beautiful soul and will be missed
by all. His sunrise was May 8, 1993 and his sunset on December 4, 2022 but his memory will live on in our hearts forever.
“May my prayer be set before you like incense; may the lifting up of my hands be like the evening
sacrifice.” – Psalm 141: 2
