Aaron was a graduate of the class of 2000 from East Carter High School. He led the Raiders to many wins during his years of basketball. He was avid fan of the UK Wildcat; you could always tell when they were playing because he would yell, jump and carryon for them. He was a boilermaker with Local # 40, Alliance Telephone Company and recently gaining his counseling certificate for drug therapy was something he was proud of. NASCAR, dirt track racing, fishing, building and flying remote control airplanes are just a few things he was passionate about.
