Aaron P. Brown passed away after a fall in his residence at Eagle Mountain Lake on December 28, 2021 at the age of 76. Aaron was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. After graduating in 1964 from Eastern Hills High School, he immediately joined the Army at the start of the Vietnam War. He rose from the rank of private to retire as a Major after 22 years of service and 2 tours in Vietnam, the last as a decorated helicopter pilot with the famed 101st Airborne Division. He was the recipient of both the Bronze and Silver Star among numerous other awards. While in the military, Aaron earned a Bachelor’s degree from Emory University and a
Master’s degree from USC. Following his retirement, Aaron served as Program Manager and Manager of Business Development for several defense and aerospace contracting firms, travelling all over the world.
Aaron was a devoted husband and father to his wife Lou and his 3 children. His marriage to Lou lasted 50 years until her death in 2016. They travelled the world together in an endless stream of national and international destinations. Aaron’s favorite city was Paris, France, a place where he and Lou visited on numerous occasions. His accomplishments in life are too numerous to mention, but one thing everyone will remember about him was his infectious laugh and sense of humor that made instant friends of strangers and brought comfort to his loved ones.

Brown (Dyanne) 1st Cousin Ilene McCarroll (Larry), sister- in-law Paula Brown (Jay-deceased), sister- in-law Sue Hammonds (Larry-deceased) along with seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
