He and his wife Patti have 3 kids and 13 grandchildren. He started singing barbershop in the early 80's with the Sugar Cane Chorus in Baton Rouge, LA. (and no, he doesn’t like crawfish). In 1988 he took a hiatus from barbershop singing and resumed in 2006 when he moved to CA where he sang in 2 separate barbershop choruses in the Los Angeles Area. After buying property in Sun City West in 2015, Aaron joined the Desert Aires and moved full time to Sun City West in 2017.  Aaron is also a member of the Phoenicians Barbershop Chorus. He has sung with 5 different barbershop choruses.
