Aaron graduated from Seymour High School in 2002. In 2005 he enlisted in the US Army and served his county in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Recently Aaron moved to Ft. Myers, Florida and was managing a tire warehouse for Tire Hub there. Aaron loved riding his motorcycle (especially Johnny 5), gambling on all professional sports (although he never quite hit the big one), he loved playing cards (trying to get Grandma's money), enjoying a good BBQ with his Memphis family the Barnes', and spending time with his Army buddies. If you were ever at a gathering and Aaron was there you never knew what un-predictable stunt he was going to pull next. He loved playing with his nieces and nephews.
