Aron and his twin Ben were born into a caring Christian family of 12 children. Aron’s love of animals, particularly horses, and farming followed him throughout life. At 19, Aron left Manitoba and moved to St. Catharines, Ont., where he met and married Mary, becoming part of another large family. Aron and Mary raised 4 children and successfully ran a farm in St. Anns, Ont., while Aron worked full-time in the automotive industry. After retirement, Aron and Mary relocated to Edmonton where Aron volunteered at church, MCC, Habitat for Humanity, and in the community. In 2012, Aron was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He underwent successful surgery and chemotherapy. He will be remembered as a wonderful brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend who “never met a stranger.”
