  1. Aaron was a friend and colleague at Home Real Estate. Always ready with a smile and a story to go along with it. Loved his music and took pride in his collection of records. He took joy in his lunch time ritual to have a bowl of soup at a nearby restaurant. He always was busy with his clients, specializing in town homes. A good man who is well characterized by his photo, mischievously smiling. He will be missed.

  2. I had the awesome privilege of working with Aaron during my years at HOME Real Estate. I remember many conversations with him over the years. I was the managing broker for several years at the HOME Cotner office where Aaron worked. He had a very kind and caring heart and always did his best to take care of his customers. He will be missed by many. I am so proud to be able to call him a friend. God bless, Aaron!

  3. Heather, I am saddened to hear of your fathers passing. We worked together at Home Real Estate for several years. We had many discussions about life issues , Berea College as well as talking about his record collection which he was so proud of. I will miss my friend. My prayers to you & the rest of the family.

  4. Heather, Your father and I worked together for many years at Disability Determinations. I remember the time he invited some of us to your home for an excellent home-cooked breakfast he prepared. I met my husband at the DDS and your Dad would remind us, flashing that big grin of his, that he was the one who encouraged my husband to ask me out in the first place. So many memories of long conversations with him. We both want you to know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  5. Heather,
    We are saddened to learn of your father’s death. He was a good father; you were a good daughter. Please know there is always a place for you at our home to come and have a meal or just reset. You remain in our thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself.
    Pauline and Michael Zeece
