On June 22, 1952, Aaron married Rovana Johnson in Nodaway, which began their life of 51 years together until her death, October 24, 2003.
Aaron farmed many years of his early life in Missouri and also worked for General Motors in Kansas City, Kansas. In 1974, they moved to Wheatland, Wyoming. After a few years of working on a farm there, he and Rovana moved to Mooreland, Oklahoma in 1977, where he worked for the Woodward County Road and Bridge Department as a heavy equipment operator.
